That thing drove me insane on our previous camper.

Don't tell DW but I may have bought a fifth wheel just to get a refrigerator with real digital numbers.

I have the same fridge, but I have an additional on and off switch labeled "climate control switch", not sure what the function is for?

For the loose slide, take it out of the fridge, heat the folded edge with a lighter or torch and squeeze it tighter while it cools. This may take three hands. Duct tape should hold the thermocouple sensor in the holder.

One of these days, I'm going to install my "snip the tip" refrigerator temperature control. Supposedly they're the bees knees to replace that stupid slider.

I had the RTD come loose in our Dometic DM2652RBX. I contacted Dometic and they told me the position for it, which was level with the top. I used a little RTV to keep it there and one of those spring type paper clip/binder to hold the whole thing where I put it.

If you don't have a decal to note which way to move the Thermistor, remember the phrase, "Down to Hell" to remember. "Down" is warmer... This has worked for me over the years. You can also have a Dinosaur Electronics brand control board put in the fridge to provide you with more control over temps if needed.

Agreed - one in the refrig and one in the freezer takes all the guess work out of it and let's you adjust the slider to get it right (why they don't use a real thermostat is beyond me!).

These are good and small. I'm not sure why they are listed for $20. I bought several on Amazon for $2 each. They are accurate +/- 2 degrees or so which is adequate for this purpose. If you are compulsive (like someone I know) you can test them against a known good unit such as an infrared thermometer and mark it as +1 or -2 so you will always know.

Or use a Sharpie to write "warmer" and "colder" on the wall. Done.
