Refrigerator trouble.

We have a 2015 Forest River Blue Ridge 3125. It has the Domestic refrigerator single door unit. The freezer part is working excellent. But the refrigerator part isnít cooling like it should. Itís just barely below room temp. I have had it plugged up for 2 days. The slider is all the way up to coldest setting and the prob is in place. And ideas?

Lots of posts on this topic. Generally, if freezer is working, fridge should be too.

Fridge should have some cold food in it from the beginning. An empty fridge wont cool (or wont cool well). If you start with cold, you're just asking the fridge to keep the food cold. You're not asking it to cool the food.

Also, fridge should not be overloaded. Fridge needs air circulation inside to work well. You may want to install a fan inside to increase this air circulation.

Hope that helps.

Having a fan to circulate the air is a big help. Something like this works well:

Also,. we usually turn ours on at least three days before we want to use it, including turning on the circulation fan. It is always down to temperature then, when we load it.

It makes me wonder: IF these fans work so well why doesn't the RV fridge manufacturers build them into the fridge units?
