New 12v fridge question

I have one of these new 12v fridge/freezer units. Itís an 11 cf model. TT is new so I havenít used it yet.

Yesterday after having increased my solar array I thought Iíd click on the fridge, lights, fans, etc to start doing a little testing.

After a few hours I checked the fridge and inside is barely cool to the touch, same with the freezer. I could feel cool-ish air coming out of the vent in the back of the freezer but it certainly didnít feel cold enough to freeze anything. I did not throw in a thermometer. This was yesterday. Left it on.

Checked again today after work, same. Hardly any draw on system.

Shut off the fridge. Turned it back on and saw a 4 amp draw. Seems to be running.

Shouldnít everything in there be cold to the touch? Does the fact that itís 40 ish degrees outside matter? Iím going to find a thermometer to stick in there but if anyone has any input on these new 12v fridges, if this seems normal or abnormal. Iíll update with temps when I have em.

I take it all back. Power cycling the unit after work today must have done the trick. It was certainly cold to the touch just now when I checked and the thermometer shows it. It may have kept dropping, only left it in there a few minutes. Sorry everyone, false alarm.
