How long did you wait to check for cooling? Usually it's at least a couple hours before you really notice anything. I start mine up 12-24 hours before I leave. I have had my TT in my driveway, where I can't get it level (close, but not level) front to back because of the slope, and the fridge has always worked for me (in my previous TT's, which have the same fridge).

If anyone has a solution for an outside TV mount, I'd love to hear it. Pirate games outside during the summer, and Penn State games in the fall, is my favorite part of camping... Well, other than the quality family time, of course.

Overnight. Water circulating sounds. I guess it's just not level enough. Oh well...I'll let it run on gas while we're driving and stick stuff in a cooler with ice until we're there.

Lesson learned. Thanks guys.

Or get an 800 dollar portable fridge/freezer! Lol

Are the camper fridges suppose to be turned off after each trip? I run mine until im done camping for the year.

As for a tv mount, i just realized they didnt inclued a base with the tv! Ill have to look into that now. I keep a 4' table right by the outside cable jack, be nice to put the tv on top some times.

What do you guys use to wax your campers? Our last two campers I just used a wash-n-wax... But I'm not sure if that's enough. I have to park on the street (low "development" type traffic) to wash it, so it's not all that convenient to do so.

Ran the fridge 2 hours on propane. Heard it start up. Nothing. Plugged in at the campground for 5 hours. Nothing. Read the manual and can't see anything wrong. It's on and on auto. Gurgling away and not cooling a thing.

Umpty, where is that little slide tab on your fins? Isn't that your temp control? I had no idea how to control temp until i read up on it, the up/down height and which fin it's on matters somewhat.
