Just recently purchase an old RV, to be exact 1988 Fleetwood Jamboree. So far encounter a major roof leak, which I had repaired. Minor leak in the plumbing under the sink, repaired. Refrigerator works, however does not get cold. I was told to allowed 48 hours for the temperature to get cold. I even went as far as having blocks of ice put into the freezer and in the refrigerator itself to assist in starting up the refrigerator. DID NOT WORK! Any suggestions?

Check that the flame is present and creating heat on LP, and on 120 v is the heating element getting hot? Both should be accessible from outside refrigerator vent. Also check that the thermistor is attached to a fin inside the refrigerator. Use the manufacturer name and model number to Google owner's manual.
