Putting dual fans inside the frig and dual fans outside at the bottom of the tubing and above the burner will decrease the cool down time and increase the overall cooling capacity of the unit. When I turn the frig on, I also turn all 4 fans on. I never run the frig without the fans.

Although you've got it cooling on gas now, I haven't heard that you solved your AC problem.

You should check (test and reset) all your GFCI's. The outlet that the fridge AC cord is plugged into (behind the inlet vent panel on the side) is GFCI protected... it may be its own GFCI but more likely to be a downstream-protected outlet off either a kitchen or bathroom GFCI (out previous TT had only one, our new FW has an additional one in the kitchen).

Fraz, what you need to know is that refrigerators are really just freezers, that bleed, or fan assist cold air into the "fridge" portion. Rv dual fuel refrigerators work slighly different, but the principle is the same. The freezer needs to be at spec temperature, before the fridge section can attain its designed temps.

If you want it to cool down faster freeze some bottles of water and put them in the fridge. We turn ours on 4 days before a trip with the bottled water. That side of the trailer is in direct sun most of the day and slows it progress.

Yes, they take quite a few hours to get cold...we always park the trailer outside our house the night before heading out in order to both load it up and get the fridge working. (And leave it on gas while driving to keep cold.)
