The manual says you need 1 inch space all around, sides and top. Also do not place near heat sources. Is this campers side in the sun?



I might measure it with my cheap digital (frig) thermometer. Tie it to a string and hang it back there.



It definitely needs ventilation to carry the heat away. Otherwise the temperature will keep rising until something gives or plateaus. There is likely a maximum temperature difference it can sustain, running full time.



Don't know if you can check 12v at frig. If not, I might add some small wires for my digital volt meter. Low voltage can cause overheating and high current too.

Will be taking my voltmeter along this weekend. Will pickup the fridge and hook back up. Will check wiring at the fuse box and make sure all connections are good and tight. Size of the wire seems to be large enough, looks like about 8 gauge in size. Will see what volts and AMP it's drawing.

BTW: I really like having a frig thermometer. When it's a 100f afternoon, with no AC, I like to know the food is safe. The old campers frig struggled a bit.

Freezer worked great at freezing Blue Ice. I would move some to frig. The extra thermal mass is good ballast against afternoon heat. Extra Blue Ice is great for the beer cooler.


More fans on the frig exhaust vent helped too.
