I know my camper is totally level. I still wonder how cold should the refrigerator be? Does anybody know what temperature we are aiming for? Also, what are those little silver shaving things that I keep finding on the floor?. I have them in my pop-up. I also have them now in the Colby T. They look like cast offs from drilling holes in metal. They are usually close to the refrigerator. Anyone?

Freezer section.......0 to 10*F.
Fridge section........approximately 38*F. (above 32*F and below 40*F)

Silver shavings.......probably metal shavings left over from installation. Installers don't clean up after themselves. I've found all kinds of debris left behind and I've owned this RV for over 5 yrs. Recently found a very small baggie under carpet in slide out.....hummmmmmmm

I got a thermometer yesterday at Walmart, but still wasn't sure about the temperature. They were out of the remote ones-OR I just didn't see them. I guess I'm in the fridge enough to check while it's open, but that would have been cool!

The digital thermometer I did buy is holding steady at 39 degrees. YAY!

They have remote thermometers at Radio Shack also. I have one that can also tell you the highest and lowest temperature.

There are a few tips about fridges that you may not be aware of:

1) Turn the fridge on (use electric) a day or so before you load it.

2) Try to pre-cool all items before loading the fridge (ie beer;
soda; juices).

3) There is a slider on the back fins (on my fridge it is on the
right side) that "supposedly" control the temps...you
would have to look at your model fridge to check that out.

4) The use of a fan either in the fridge or in the outside fridge
compartment (or both places)helps keep the temps down, we don't
have one outside but it is on my "wish list" of things for DH to
do!

5) And we do use a remote thermometer to check temps!

To help you maintain a uniform temp in the box, you might want to consider getting one of these
