Magic Chef 12v Refrigerator Issue

We have a 2021 Flagstaff 26RBWS with a Magic Chef 12v refrigerator, Model WD-282FWDC-6. We've been very happy with the camper and the fridge since we got in April. However, on our most recent trip, we noticed that the items we placed in the bottom drawer in the fridge did not seem as cold as they should be. I took the thermometer from the freezer (which was working fine) and put it in the bottom of the fridge to compare with the one on the top shelf. The top shelf was 32 degrees, while the temp at the bottom was 43. Tried switching the thermometers and got the same result. This seems to defy physics -- doesn't cold air sink?. I set the fridge temperature colder, and now the bottom temp is is 38, but the top temp is 27 and things freeze on the top shelf. The compressor is obviously working, but I'm wondering if there an air circulation problem. I'm assuming there is some kind of fan circulation the air, but there's no mention of it in the so-called instruction manual. I don't know if some combination of different settings with the fridge and freezer will help (I'm experimenting now in between trips) or if the fan has stopped working. The manufacturer listed on the manual -- Way Interglobal -- doesn't even mention Magic Chef on it's website. If anyone else has experienced a similar problem and found a solution, I would appreciate the information. Or if you have found a good source of information/contact at Way Interglobal, Flagstaff or elsewhere who might be of help. Thanks.
