I have called to shop and they said "bring it in at the end of the month" REALLY, Hope some one finds a answer to this problem and soon.
Keep in mind the 1350 goes through a auto defrost cycle every other day about the same time. The sensor is close to the cooling coil (fridge) and will pick up 10 degrees or more for a period of time. Perhaps you are seeing this same time every other day?

Bypass mode rules out everything but cooling unit.

Not on this one but have observed rupture of tubes on other units.

One more thought before off to the shop. Some have found a cure by vibrating the sinuous coils in the back of the fridge. Often there is a temporary blockage with rust and other contaminants. These normally circulate but can collect and cause a pressure reducing blockage. Use a heavy dowel or 2x2 and vibrate the tubes. Improvement if it works will be soon after. Believe I saw in a Dometic trouble shooting guide.

Sounds reasonable. If the unit wasn't under warranty better believe I would try it.

A few more ideas:

Flap hanging on left door, must shut every time.

Auto defrost every other day

Electronic circuit board could be faulty, contols temp.

Refrig and freezer must be manually defrosted 1-2 weeks-

Condener air flow not always issue. Fitted fans should be enough.

If I add more than a six pack, the temp rises like a ballon.....
