rPod 3way Refrig.

What kind of temperatures are you seeing in the refrig. & freezer compartments?
I have mine turned all the way down ( all blue light segments lite) and it just does not seem as cold as it should be.
I would like to get some group input,
Thank You, Mike

We've never measured the temperature in the refrigerator. You were not very specific about what "cold enough" is.

We've run it on all three power modes and it seems to work fine. Butter stays hard. Some people actually keep ice cream in their freezers. We keep two frozen water bottles in ours and they stay frozen. Of course they probably contribute to the rest of the foods staying cold enough. (which is why we keep them there)

Have you put a temp gauge in fridge to see what temps your getting?

How long are you allowing the fridge to cool before adding food and beve items?

One thing I have found is cooling fridge down 6 hrs then adding items the day before we leave so fridge has ample time to recover again and equalize.
Albeit I've never had a three way fridge I'm wondering if there's mods to aid in better cooling as we do with our two way fridges.

Did you start fridge on DC only or AC or Gas....DC should be used once fridge has reached proper temperature?? What model number is your fridge?

My father has an R-Pod and we noticed it is best to start the fridge on 120volts.
