Unhappy fridge not working

We are getting ready for next weekend...plugged in to check everything, the freezer is working but the fridge is not getting cold at all. Also, the create a breeze vent won't turn on either. We have a 2011 Micro lite 19 rk.

How long has it been on? If the freezer is getting cold, the frig will follow. Is the fan battery powered or 12v?

Yes, the vent is turned on at the wall as well..it's been on for over an hour now and not cooling at all, but the freezer is definately working..I mean there is no signs of the fridge getting cold...am I worrying too soon? I believe the fan is 12 v

Check it in the morning and then start worrying if the frig isn't cool. As for the fan, check the fuses.

Not sure how long you've owned your trailer but 1 hour is way not enough time for the fridge to get cold.
Most of us let it cool overnight and fridge always takes longer to cool than the freezer.

Check the fridge and make sure the thermistor is attached to the plastic clip and being held on the cooling fin. Many times if the freezer is working and the refrigerator isn't the thermistor is the culprit.

Thanks everyone...I really jumped the gun on this one...the fridge is working...I thought it would at least show some signs of cooling after more than an hour, but I see now it takes way longer. Thanks for all the input..as for the vent..still not working. We have checked the fuses and everything looks good, so still scratching our heads on that one. This is only the second year we have had the trailer, and the first year it was all set when we bought it used, so this is our first year really opening it. Still have lots to learn...
