Fridge not cold

We have a 2003 Four Winds travel trailer,
I have Norcold N611 , we just bought it and opened it up this week. We put the setting on “auto” and the “on” indicator, lights.
After a couple of hours the freezer is at 40 degrees and the fridge is at 70 degrees. So I leftit on and when we goback in a couple of days , we will see if it is coder, but any ideas or suggestions on why it is not getting cold?
Thanks Barry

Give it 24 hours. These type refrigerators take a long time to cool down. Also recovery from opening the door takes longer.
I typically turn ours on 3 days before leaving to give it plenty of time to cool down.

since the freezer is at 40 it would seem that it is cooling but not taking anything for granted....

- is the fridge actually powered up?
- LP in the tank and valve open? since you're just opening up is the LP flowing? when we had an LP fridge i always had to light the stove burners to get the gas flowng at the beginning of a season.
