The refrigerator in our 1994 Wilderness travel trailer doesn't get very cold. The freezer freezes great, but the bottom doesn't get very cold on the electric. Is there something that we can try?
ANSWER: This is a common complaint with RVers. The fact that your refrigerator is not getting cold enough while using electric could be an indication that there is a problem with the refrigerator itself, but before you go to the expense of taking your travel trailer in and having the fridge checked out, there a couple of things you can try that cost far less than getting the fridge checked out by a Certified RV Technician.
The problem could be that the cold air in your refrigerator is not getting circulated. Unlike home refrigerators, most RV refrigerators do not come equipped with a circulation fan. There are battery-operated RV Refrigerator Fan (pictured below) that can greatly improve the cooling efficiency of your RV's fridge. Installing a RV Fridge Vent Fan will also increase the efficiency of the refrigerator and help your RV's fridge keep its cool.
I would also suggest that you perform some routine maintenance on your fridge which can also help it stay cooler. Watch the video below from RVing Expert Mark Polk for more great information on RV Refrigerators.
