Dometic RM2451 Temperature Control

Our 19FC has what I suspect is the bottom of the line Dometic refrigerator. There is no visible means of controlling the temperature. Yes there is a thermistor clipped on to the fins but I have no idea if moving it will change the temperature and if so which way to move it. There is absolutely no mention in the manual of how to adjust the temperature.

During the summer months we minimize opening the fridge and during the day if it starts to climb up to 40 or above we turn on the fan and move a couple of blue ice packs from the freezer down to the fridge. Then at night we move them back up. By thusly managing it we can usually keep the fridge between 38-41 unless it is an exceptionally hot day and/or the sun is on the refrigerator side of the trailer.

Now that we are into the winter months we are experiencing just the opposite problem which is the fridge is getting too cold. The only way I can keep it from freezing everything in it is to monitor the temp and turn it off and then once it warms up turn it back on. Doesn't matter whether I'm on gas or electric. Obviously this level of micromanagement is unacceptable. Especially at night. If I leave it on when we go to bed everything if frozen come morning. If I turn it off before going to bed everything is approaching room temperature come morning,.

Again, there is no mention in the manual of how to adjust or control the temperature, there are no stickers on the inside with little arrows or instructions, nothing. Nada.

Does anyone know if there is any means of adjusting the temperature in this unit and if so how does one do so?

Our Dometic refrigerator has the same sliding temperature control. The instruction I have read said to slide the control down the fin to warm and up to cool. But last week when outside temperature was in the 20's at night food was freezing. In the summer temperature 80 degrees and above refrigerator temperature would be above 40. So we got a "FridgeCool Fan" which helped cool the refrigerator.

Thanks for the reply SpinWhite. I just slid the clip as far down as it will go. Hope that helps. Right now it is 30 degrees outside, 65 inside the trailer and 30 in the fridge. Thanks for the recommendation on the fan. I may have to try that. In the summer with temps over 80 moving blue ice around to keep the fridge cool is kind of a pain. Works okay until I forget
