Howdy and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** and I am a Master Certified RV Tech. I understand how frustrating RV issues can be. I have been working on RVs for 35 plus years. Sorry you are having issues with your refrig. RV refrig do not work in sub zero temps. How long have you been running the refrig ? You can can move the thermistor up and down on the refrig vents to adjust the temp.

It will cool down both. Do you have a owners manual? I have one available for $5.
