Help !!

Okay, we are leaving for a week at Disney's Fort Wilderness on Friday morning.
I plugged the camper in yesterday.
Everything is working with the exception of the Fridge. It is a BRAND NEW 2015 Grey Wolf Limited.
Yesterday the fridge and freezer were on their way to getting cold but when I just went out to check it they were both hot.
Hot as in room temp.
The camper has shore power hooked up. A full battery and the propane tanks are on.
It is sitting on a slight incline but nothing extreme.
Any ideas at ALL?!?!?!
HELP !!!

Oh, I went around to the back and opened up the fridge cover and all looked as it should. The compressor/vertical tube that cools the gas mixture was warm/hot to the touch.

Sounds like it's plugged. How level is it actually? If it is off too much it will overheat

Is the inside light working?
Auto switch pushed in?

Fridge brand?

Okay, I have turned it off and am hopeful that it will "reset" itself.

Inside light is on.
Angle is about 12* nose down.
The green light was lite on the front control panel

I would level the coach and try again. 12 degrees front down is to much I think. Easy to remove front down just raise the front of the coach.

The way my driveway is angled I can not raise the front end anymore unfortunately.
I have it turned off right now. I will be hooking it up and putting it level on Thursday morning to finish loading up.
When I do that I am HOPEFUL that everything will be okay.

We are planning on parking it in a different location when we get home and that will be more level and hopefully we will not run into the situation again for the precooling phase of the fridge.
