We were out all last week in Paso Robles in Central California. Overnight temps got into low to mid 20's. Unit was running on propane. When getting up in the morning, I was finding the ice cubes melted and my thermometer had the freezer temp at 35F. Refrigerator temp per thermometer was 38F. When the outside temps warmed up, the freezer temp started to drop below freezing.
Furnace had been running quite a bit overnight but never seemed to miss a beat. Gas burner for cooktop fired right up in the morning when I got up. Our Ultra-V has 2 30# LP tanks and we never ran out of propane.
After 2 days of this happening, I switched the refer over to electric and had no more problems for the duration of the week, even though the overnight temps were the same.
Is this a normal situation for the freezer to warm when running the refer on propane in such cold weather?
I have the opposite problem when the sun is on the wall of the rv the heat of the ref. go's up to as high as 44* when it is cooler I'm running OK at 34* I just looked up it's 37 at 12:30 pm 65* today Lower Texas and Dometic is no help at all, there answer is just read the manual or they installed it wrong,
funny it ran OK last winter.
