Dometic Refrig

Have a Georgetown 330 with Dometic refrigerator. Is it normal during hot (95 F) days to see the refrigerator temperature increase during late afternoon?

If the sun is hitting the rig on same side as the fridge, yes, you might notice an increase in temperature.

I just bought a small blue battery operated fan. Initial assessment is that it is helping to keep refrigerator cooler in hot environment. Thanks for help

Lower shelf of the refrigerator. The fan moves air upward.

These absorption refrigerators have the advantage of being able to run on either electricity or gas. Their problem is when it is hot outside the refers don't stay too terribly cold inside...

How do you guys handle MILK. Sometimes I worry that the Fridge TEMP is not cool enough for MILK to be stored in there.

I can see how in Texas it could be a real problem this summer.

Smaller no refridgeration containers might be a solution. That way only a days worth of milk would be in the fridge.
