Fridge not cooling properly

I have had this 2016 rockwood mini lite since May fridge always worked great at around 39 deg( I have a digital thermometer in there) today the fridge is staying at 49 deg. Any ideas why it's doing this I have it plugged to shore power and the propane is on to. Please help I have a week long trip planned any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Check if the thermistor has inadvertently slid down on the cooling fin inside the fridge. They like to do that.

Piece of plastic should have a wire coming out of it running into the fridge. Did the sensor fall out of the plastic clip?

I ran some rough road in and out of McCarthy Alaska and my thermistor slid way down. Shimmed it with a piece of plastic and it's holding.

The thermistor is on a cable and should be clamped by that piece of plastic. Slide it up high for colder. It sounds like it us laying down now.
