I have mine in storage with an indoor/outdoor probe inside and when left alone for days in the garage where the temp ranges from 80-93 degrees, my fridge temp swings from 36-48 with the temp set at 7.. no house ac is on and the coach interior gets into the low 90s..is that a normal range? Seems rather large with the door always closed

You leave it on LP while in storage. Mine is always cold even when the frost is melted from fins during defrost period. Most items are cool during defrost. I have mine plug in 110v and do check it at times just to make sure things remain cool. I park MH pulled in drive or backed in slite sloop in drive but refer works the same either way.
The days have been warm lately and cooling fans up top of coils have been cycling off and on. More so if sun is hitting side of refer wall.
The door surfaces of refer will get hot when its really hot and coach is closed up, some of this heat may radiate into the box area causing temp to raise. Freezers always have frost.

Do you both always keep your refrigerators running in RV when not in use??? If so do you think this is better for them then turning them on only when using the RV. I keep my unit off and doors ajar when not in use. Which is better???

During the summer months and fall never know when we might pickup and go plus it keeps the cool ones cool if I run out in the house.
If you have to remove everything from refer gets to be a pain its work in mine to empty.
In the winter months I do as you do have to keep the pellets stoves running for kids so no fulltime yet.

My Norcold will swing 10 odd degrees in both the freezer and refer sides when sitting untouched for days. I've tested both LP and AC with same results. I have wireless remote sensors sitting in all three compartments to monitor this. I would add that my #7 setting swings the refer between roughly 30-40 degrees and freezer(s) -4 to 6. The readings are from the mid-level door shelves.
