I have a Norcold 2118SST refrigerator and on any given

I have a Norcold...

I have a Norcold 2118SST refrigerator and on any given temperature setting the temperature swings @ 13 degrees from 35 to 47 degrees and runs more in the 40's than in the 30's for required food safety. The freezer runs from 11 to 14 degrees. Is this normal to have this much temperature swing?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you checked the coolant level?

This is a refrigerator not a car

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your RV?

2020 Grand Design, Momentum

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I have checked the thermistor and it is working fine.
