Refrigerator Temperature


I know the fridge in my TT works differently than the one in my home.

However, on a recent 5 day outing in my new FC around Lake Tahoe in where the outside high temp was not above 80 my fridge temp stayed at either 41 or 42 degrees.

Is this the best I should expect from the fridge? It seems 40 or less is a better temp for food.

Thanks in advance.

Have you checked your owners manual to possibly lower the setting. Many have a thermistor on the cooling fins that can be moved up or down to lower or raise the temperature.

Adding food and beverages to the fridge will raise the temperature and take several hours to lower. Also, be sure the door is closed all the way and latched - it takes a definite push to latch it properly.

Fridge Performance

You did not state what model flying cloud you have, but if it is a 23D (now called a 23CB) you can improve performance by adding some airflow to the back cabinet of the Fridge. Go to "The 23D" thread and look at all the different ways owners have come up with to improve airflow. Most, if not all, Airstreams and many other RV's could benefit from some improved airflow on the mechanical side of the Fridge. Some Airstream models vent the heat through a roof vent and some have 2 exterior doors on Fridge compartment. Better airflow may help you situation. It did for me.
