I've had problems with the fridge temp shooting up during the first few days of travel. Had an RV repair pull it to find the vent not over the back of the fridge and the ceiling trapping hot air. He lowered the ceiling to specs and installed an additional fan near coils but on our first trip out, the temp went up to 45 for 2 days. Should have bought a Tiffin or another Fleetwood product. Tried trading it in at year 2 then last Dec and the NADA values put us 30k under what I owe. I can't see losing 50k in 3 yrs so I have my fingers crossed that the roof will last 20 and the other Chinese made stuff will hold out too. Matt

Matt I would look inside the refrigerator and find your thermostat sensor.
It is a white colored plastic solid round device attached to the fins.
You can control temp by moving this forward or back. Not sure which direction but this is the actual control of your refrigerator temp.

Maybe someone can tell you more. Dometic Refrigerators are installed in all rigs so we all have similar refers.
Here is a picture of mine but I have a 4 door Dometic. The smaller ones have it mounted on the back fins.
Also not you must keep it clear so you have circulation around and not blocked.
Good luck

Iggy on mine, you slide the thermistor UP for cooler and DOWN for warmer. Takes awhile after moving to see the results. It is located on the far right fin.

Gigs, I have the same type as in your photo. Can you be a little more specific as howmI move it up or down? It's clipped in the holder. Do I move it slightly forward or back a quarter inch in that clip? M

ceiling coming unglooed

Just had my ceiling replaced by B and E rv service in Ocalla Florida. I haven't picked up the coach yet but my cost to fix this factory defect is going to be 1134 dollars. It's amasing how some people paid nothing and others paid different amounts to get this same factory defect repaired.

We had nothing but problems with our Dometic refer on our TT. It was a 2010 trailer and within a couple of years we had it serviced several times. The last time it broke, the thermostat (thermistor) broke and it forced the refer to go on rampid full time cold and it finally shut down ruining all of our food. We ended up replacing the thermostat with a rotary type that fixed all temperature issues. IIRC, I got the kit form ebay or something and it was very easy to install. It was basically a tiny adjustable resistor that was calibrated to match the resistance range of the refer. Having lost so much food or having hot beers when we got somewhere...we were very happy to find a residential fridge in our new coach.
