At night, when it's cooler outside, the refrigerator/freezer seems to cool down to where it should be. During the day, the temperature that displays on at the top of the front of the unit keeps rising well above where it should be. Today, the temperature indicator rose to almost 60 degrees.
There are two vents for the refrigerator/freezer unit on the full wall slideout. We had fans installed in both vent areas on the slideout.
I called Dometic today to ask about the problem. I got a "BS" answer from the support person.
We never had this type of problem when we owned a Winnebago. I'm beginning to believe that the Georgetown was not such a good buy.
Any ideas for solving the Dometic refrigerator/freezer problem? I would really appreciate your help and suggestions.
For starters the fans should be together in parallel, not in series. The idea is to create flow, not pressure. You should be aware of the fans capacity, any old computer 4" fan won't do it, you need lots of volume capacity.
You don't need thermostatic auto control but you need a switch where convenient, to shut them off when cool outside.
