Check in outside access door to refrigerator back and be sure it's clean and not full of cobwebs or other things blocking free ventilation out roof vent. In addition, check the manual for other troubleshooting tips about not cooling properly. 10 for freezer and 48 for refrigerator isn't too bad though.

I added some dryer duct to the cooling fans in back of our Dometic to direct the airflow so there is plenty of air over the finned condenser coil. Solved our problem, stays at 0 and 37 on setting 4 of possible 5.

You should reach 0-5 degrees in the freezer which would give you 30 - 35 degrees on the fins in the fridge, which in turn should give you 36 - 38 in the fridge. Make sure your RV is level or the refrigerator won't work properly also check the airflow over the condenser fins on the rear of the fridge.

Laso, note that the coldes part of the freezer is the floor. Keep the ice cream on the bottom! LOL

And plan your door openings to keep them to a minimum. Absorption refer's simply do not recover as quickly/easily as compressor type do.

Anything is possible. One way to check it might be to note what fin it's clipped to, then remove it from the fin. If there's any reserve cooling capacity available (if the thermistor is shutting the cooling unit down prematurely) box temp should start getting a little cooler.

I tried moving it up and down over a several day period and it made no changes to the temp in either place

Might be time to look into a fan or 2 to get some extra air circulating around the back side of the cooling unit, as well as inside?.
