Default dometic refrigerator

Refrigerator has been plugged in over 24 hrs, the freezer is at 20 degrees, but the fridge is reading 60 degrees any suggestions on what could be the problem? We leave for the beach tomorrow and would rather not live out of coolers.

Are you running on Gas or electric? How hot is the ambient temp? Is the roof vent and side vents clear of obstructions?

If running on electric switch to gas. Gas operation gets much colder. If it is 90 or more that maybe be the best it can do. If there isn't enough air flow behind the fridge for a chimney effect to take the heat out of the roof and in from the side this will cause issues.

Check to make sure the thermostat located in the refrigerator on one of the metal fins is pushed up higher. That is often the issue with low fridge temps.

Some performance history would be helpful. If this is a new trailer to you (1st time using it) you may have adopted some problems. If you have a history of it working then that’s a different discussion.

Could be anything from improper ventilation to a bad control board
