Install inside fans to circulate the air, you may want to leave it set where it is.

Here's what we use to see the temperature.

Amazon.com: AcuRite 00986 Refrigerator/Freezer Wireless Digital Thermometer: Home & Kitchen

This way we don't have to open the door to see the temperature.

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.

Just back from a week-long camping trip in the new trailer. Have slipped the white plastic slider thing down all the way. It is on the left most fin.

Still pretty chilly in the refrigerator, some food is still freezing. Temperature is 28 or so in the fridge and several degrees below zero in the freezer.

If that does not make it stop freezing food in the fridge, do I move the white thing to another fin?

Are you sure the thermistor (the wire portion) is sliding down with the cover? They have a way of coming apart.

I haven't tried it, but someone said if still too cold, move the slider to a more inside fin where it is colder donor will ask for less cooling.

Yeah, it's on the far right of ours too. But this one must be on the opposite side. They work by sensing the temperature level. When placed higher where it is warmer, they call for more cooling. When placed lower where it is cooler, they call for cooling less often. It's counterintuitive because "up" is where the cooling fins are. But cold air falls and warm air rises, apparently fast and often enough to make this wonky method work.
