RV refrigerators, designed to make the best use of available storage space in an RV, have many different systems that are used to make sure everything is running smoothly and the refrigerator is at the desired temperature.

There is, however, a list of things that could go wrong with your RV refrigerator, as they have some unique quirks about them, and you may at some point need to do some RV refrigerator troubleshooting. Keep in mind that the RV refrigerator operates entirely different from a home refrigerator and it is important to understand the characteristics of your RV refrigerator if you want to make sure your food and drinks stay cool.

One of the most popular RV refrigerator troubleshooting questions involves the RV part called a thermistor. The thermistor, or temperature probe in your refrigerator, is a very important piece of your RV refrigerator as it helps to regulate the temperature in order to make sure it is where it should be.

In this informational RV video, watch as this common RV refrigerator troubleshooting topic is discussed. Learn more about where the thermistor should be located and some basic things to look for when checking your own RV refrigerator thermistor. Make sure you are prepared the next time something goes wrong with your refrigerator and you need to do some RV refrigerator troubleshooting of your own.

    Way too short to be useful. No idea how to adjust position on the thermistor. seems more like a "loss leader" to suck you into buying more videos (all over and above the "premium" subscription).

    We have a 2011 Puma travel trailer. The refrigerator works pretty good on electric, but still does not get really cold if it's hot outside. On gas it works better. But when we are traveling to and from camp site, the refrigerator is on gas, but does not stay cold. In a 6 hr trip, the refrigerator inside temp gets up to 60. What do I need to check? Thank you.
