I have the same problem with my 2015 Puma 32DBKS, frig will not cool below 66 degrees!!!! This is with a fan kit. The air circulation is insufficient with the set up.

I don't have a MH, but if you have this hose bracket, keep an eye on it. I had to do the zip ties so I can use it next weekend.

Probably unrelated but, I have 2016 25dks with kitchen and sofa slide. After 5 trips, the slide-out motor failed. Camper has been in the shop since September 15th. I am concerned that slide-outs in general are prone to failures. Since this happened I am trying to learn as much as I can about how to care for them and manually operate them in case of failure.

Sounds as if we should be careful & not use slides anymore than we have to ???

At the very least, not until we get rid of that nasty mud dauber infestation in the garage.

We had a 2014 Thor with a full wall slide. Kitchen sink etc. was in the slide. We had a leak, but it was a bad fitting where they tied the outside shower into the plumbing under the sink. Our Dynamax has two slides, but no plumbing in them, makes me a little more comfortable.
We have had the slide room on the Dynamax fixed twice this summer, both slide motors failed, powergear.

We have a kitchen slide with the stove and fridge built into it. No problems with plumbing or electric but the fridge would not keep up in 85 + temps. Vent in the slide mounted fridge not great from FR. I added fans and a shroud in the top vent on the slide. 100 outside, 2 freezer, 34 fridge.
