Im with Backpacker3 on this all the way. Level your camper .. (bal leveler) and pre cool. Then add cold units to the fridge about 4 or so hours later ... no problems.
Both my fridges .. same make in my previous campers worked great this way ...

On my trip to Texas I stopped for gas about 5 hours from my destination. While at the gas station I turned on the fridge to run on LP. By the time I got there and setup and returned from the store The fridge was ready to go. I did switch it to electricity as soon as I could. Also I use a indoor outdoor thermometer that I put in the fridge or freezer so I can monitor the temp in the TV. On the way back I brought shrimp I had help catch in the freezer, the temp never got above 3F. I use the dual fan setup.

Time spent 2012 in TT 32 days so far and 21 Planned days this Fall with mini trips in between
