Fridge Temp

There are several good suggestions on this thread. The further up the right hand fin you slide the thermistor the colder the fridge gets. One thing that is counter intuitive is that keeping the fridge door closed all the time will actually make the freezer warmer. The unit only detects the fridge temp.So in a properly operating unit that has a normal amount of food in it, normal opening and closing the fridge door will lower the freezer temp because it cools the freezer first. Also when I first prepare for a trip the first thing I do is to turn on the propane and burp the line by lighting all the things that use propane. In my 25SS Safari RB I light the stove, then the heater, then the hot water heater. Then I light the fridge. Basically this will remove all the air in the system from nearest the source to furthest before lighting the fridge.

Hope that helps

That's DOMETIC ( there's no S in DOMETIC) and they're made in Sweden.
