Make sure you've got the temperature sensor slid UP.

One more word of caution. Be smart about opening it. Try not keep it open for more than 20 or 30 seconds at a time. And try not open several times an hour. Unlike a compressor based fridge, it takes longer to recover and cool the air inside it again. I'm not saying don't use it, just don't expect it to work like the 20 cu ft Frigidaire in your kitchen. Once cool though...they work like champs! Nothing like a cold glass of iced tea after splitting logs into tonight's fire wood!

And buy a fridge temp gauge. It helps you keep a tab on things. I got mine at Target for 5 bucks.

Also, keep in mind there is no interior fan to circulate air in the fridge. You might consider purchasing one of the battery powered fridge fans to do this. They work quite well, run a long time before you need new batteries, and are relatively inexpensive. I've found my fridge cools faster with this, and recovers quickly after opening/closing the door.

You've probably got the same one I had in the 2280BH I traded in last month. It took most of a day to get cold. I've got a full size in the new trailer and I can tell you that the new one gets much colder much faster than the little 2 Cu ft. one in the popups. Probably due to the fact that it has a freezer also. I would suggest running it on propane during the hotter months, as it struggles a little to stay cold and propane seems to work a little better. Below 55 degrees outside, however, I have frozen milk overnight on accident.
