Gas/Electric Frig

Our freezer will hold a steady temperature of 20* for two or three days and then goes up to 32* to 34* for a day or so and then back down to 20*. It has been doing this for the past six months. When parked in the shed for the winter, the coach (Monaco 2003 Windsor) is always plugged in as I was advised by a tech. Our frig was replaced several years ago under the recall order. Any and all suggestions are welcomed.

What fridge make/model? Norcold 12xx series fridges have a defrost cycle that can have an effect like that, though usually not for a full day or more.

As Gary said, the Norcold 1200 has a defrost cycle. I's on a timer. When we had a 1200 Norcold in our Monaco, I would turn the refer off and then back on once a day to avoid the defrost cycle because the 1200 was soooo finicky and a pain to keep cold.
