Refer help please

I have a Georgetown 329 brand new. We are out on the first trip. The refer is not getting cold. Auto light is on. Check light is not on so it appears to be working.

Any quick thoughts I can try before the trip is over and I just take it in.

These refrigerators take minimum 12 hours to cool down .

Did you let it cool down before installing all your food ?
Have you checked the actual temp with a thermometer ?

You should always pre-cool the fridge for a minimum of 12 hours on electric (not as efficient as propane), before putting food inside that can spoil.

Make sure you have not moved (or removed!) the thermistor wire attached to the heat transfer fins. The lower (fridge; not freezer) compartment temperature is set by sliding the thermistor up or down on the fin. There is a sticker on the wall with the direction.

Here are some tips from the user manual:

Mine is set perfect and I forget whether it moves up or down to change the temp. When I guess here, I always get it wrong. The sticker is in the fridge.
