Should take 6hrs or more to cool. Overnight is much better.

Thanks everyone for the great feedback. It is now cooling great so I just didn't give it enough time.

Yeah the Dometics take a long time to first cool down. Having a Norcold in my TT toyhauler which cools much faster, the first time I started the Dometic I though something was wrong with it.

Also, if you have the 4 door model check that the handles are not broken. It's a common problem and often not obvious unless you look closely. But it prevents the door from making a tight seal.

See if it cools in the propane mode. My refrigerator did this on our last trip. I had the unit in for warranty work on some electrical issues and they had unplugged the refrigerator. I took a shot and removed the cover outside and sure enough the dealer had not plugged the unit in. Once I plugged it back in, it worked in auto mode as designed.
