It's on the right-most fin all the way up. I read it only moves it about 5 degrees off the preset.

Well, can't be that then, ours got too cold there. Sorry it couldn't be that simple, Umpty.
KDH, that looks very relaxing! Such a sharp looking camper. We just get to visit ours in storage tonight. :beer:

Potential new Apex owner/Apex 288BH info

That darn fridge is going to give me an ulcer! Plugged in for 24h and the freezer floor is chilly (not freezer cold though) while the fridge is cool at best but nowhere near fridge temps. Heading out to buy a thermometer now.

Wish I could help Umpty but I do know they take a long time to cool down (keep that door closed). Plus if Sun is out and heating the coach, that will add required time. We always get ours the day before loading/leaving. We plug it in and turn it on as soon as we get it home. It's cold by the next morning. Good Luck!

Hallelujah!!! Freezer and fridge are at temp! I got the thermometer and freezer was at 45F and fridge was at 55F on a cloudy 65 day. This morning (36h total run time) temps were in normal ranges. Whew!

Maiden voyage pics. Warrior Creek Campground at W Kerr Scott Reservoir in NC. Site was entirely level. Easiest setup imaginable. Just what a rookie needs!

BTW, what is the outside orange light for? Blue LED worked well with the fire and caused quite the conversation between the sites. 😃

...as quick as the fridge was ok...it later died. Left for the day and when we got back the fridge was at 60F and the freezer was 50F. It had been running since Thurs at 3:00 on shore power. I just switched it to has just to see what it does and I'll check it in the morning.

That's the only thing 'bad' to happen on the first outing. Sucks though. Brand new camper and the fridge isn't working. Lost food too. Good thing we did a close trip with stores nearby.

Looks great! You guys have such nice gravel/grass camp grounds, ones on the island here aren't set up like that.
I use the orange light more plus i added the orange step lights, that blue is a tad bright!
