Norcold Fridge not cooling on propane

2018 Grey Wolf. My fridge is cooling on electric. I left it overnight and it was 30 degrees in the morning. It did warm up here so I left it alone until about 2PM. Only raised up 2 degrees to 32. I switched to propane.

Now; I just leveled the camper, pulled the burner tube and soaked in alcohol then lightly blew it out with compressed air. Also blew some air up the flu to make sure no nests got up in there. I have a nice solid blue flame just like I did before i did all this crap.

Just went in there and temp was at 55 degrees. I know I just fired up the propane and it has only been 2 hours but the fridge was already at temperature. Anything else I'm missing here. The camper is a 2018 and just out of factory warranty by a couple of weeks. I do have an extended policy but trying to avoid the drive to the dealer. I have had my share of used campers and always done my own maintenance and repairs but this has me stumped.

I did this same process a day or two ago minus the cleaning. The fridge just got worst on propane, so kinda expecting the same.

Do you have anything in the fridge? In my experience, empty or near empty rv fridges dont seem to cool well, especially on gas. Completely full fridges rv fridges dont either.

Check to be sure, but that fridge should have a 3 year factory warranty.

Call Norcold and see if there are any mobile RV services near you and contact one of them to check it out.
