Good morning welcome to just answer my name is James

If the refrigerator works on electric than it does not need a cooling unit.

You need to clean your burner, make sure your gas pressure is right and make sure baffle is in place.

Thanks James

it's weird that the freezer works so well on gas just not the fridgeI'll take the back apart and make sure everything's all cleaned and flame is good
RV Mechanic: James Davy,

The freezer has to come to full cold before lower box cools

RV Mechanic: James Davy,

There must be something going on with the flame or missing baffle. Is there only one thermostat?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Not sure is the thermostat that little Dodad that hooks on to the cold baffles in the fridge
RV Mechanic: James Davy,

Ok that a thermistor, take it off and let it hang loose, it then will go to full cold.

5 is the coldness To  adjust LPG Temp. you will need to have a monitors hook to system and then you remove cover on lpg regulator  and adjust it with a screw driver. I look for a video .
