The freezer will always get cold long before the box has a chance to, I would give at least 8 hours and see if the box gets cold. IF the box does not get cold then you have a problem. Make sure the fridge is level as well.

Normally if you get no cooling on both LP and AC power in the box the cooling unit is suspect, being this is a 2020 that would be something you would want to get looked at under warranty.

OK. no problems on LP or 30 amp shore. Only on 110 home power.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 years ago

could be just a matter of waiting. I'll try it. Thanks.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 years ago

The heating element pulls a good amount of amps so if you are plugging the RV into a standard 110 house outlet you can have line loss where the AC voltage will drop down when this happens appliances will start fail. The longer or more cords involved the greater the problem can be. Really should try to stay away from plugging the RV into a standard 110 outlet, if you do then I would run the fridge on propane.
