For maximum cooling should I turn right or left
It never seems to go below 60° & a bottle of water doesn't freeze in the freezer compartment.
I never tried on electric. (none where it is parked)
Can I adjust the cooling from the rear of the unit too?
I have had Dometics that worked both ways, so the best guess would come from someone with that exact model. On one of my old Dometics, I could change the setting from the back with a pliers, but I'm guessing that may be model dependent, also.
If you find the limits of movement of the bolt and set it to center, it should get pretty cold.
Gas will cool it quicker than electric if the flue is kept clean. Gas has more BTU input than the electric element which results in more cooling.
