The LPG regulator should be set to 11 to 13 inches of water column pressure.

The somewhat higher setting works much better when traveling in mountains.

Particles of rust can float around in the reefer tubing system, and then find a small orifice to block or partially block, which then has a negative effect on the reefer's cooling ability.

2 door reefers have 2 separate coil systems, therefore one can work correctly and the other one not.

Thank you for the excellent recommendations. I will check the vents and ensure the lp regulator is set to 11 to 13 inches of water pressure, then run the refer on lp again.

How about taking the refer out and tumbling it? I have read this will sometimes fix them when they quit entirely, will tumbling help when they cool but just don't cool enough?

The "tumbling" may or may not dislodge the particle of rust that is blocking an orifice within the system.

Should it happen to work, that would be great.

However, when that same particle may cause the issue again, becomes a question of "WHEN".

Most likely, it will happen at the very worst time, namely on a trip.
