    <strong>Ticket 35799</strong> My refrigerator at the lowest setting is freezing everything in the refrigerator. I defrosted the refrigerator but it is still freezing everything including the eggs. Do you think I need a new thermostat??

    What is the best way to clean the outside rear panel of the fridge. Dust, cobwebs from being storages. If using an compress air compressor would said dust enter cabin area.

    Hi, I'm new to RVing. I have a small truck camper I bought used, it's a 2013 and the problem I'm having is that it seems to take a long time for the fridge to cool down. I took the camper out last weekend and so turned the fridge on early Thursday am. and it still was not to temp by Sunday, the freezer had just barely begun to freeze by Sunday. The fridge is a Dometic and operates on propane and electricity it also has a cooling fan. I live in the mountains off the coast of California so the ambient temp was in the 70's. Is this typical for an RV fridge? or is it in need of charging? Any advice/help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time George
