    July 18, 2020Hi folks, I'm a newbie and could use some advice. I recently purchased a 2014 Keyston -- It has an Atwood 6 Cu Ft refrigerator and I'm having trouble keeping the fridge under 55 - 60 F when in the sun. I've replaced the Thermister, added 2 fans on the coo...  more

        Jeffrey H Lomb July 20, 2020 I've already added 2 fans (see above)

      Glamping Jeepers July 18, 2020 What is the outside temp? Gas absorsion ammonia start to struggle above 90-95F. Good airflow up and out the top on the back of the frig and also adding fans inside the frig helps alot. I have three interior thermometers on my fridge and they vary as muc...  more

        Jeffrey H Lomb July 20, 2020 Outside temps greater than 70 deg seems to greatly affect. Although today is one of the first days that it's been cloudy -- Temps around 84 F -- and the fridge seems to be around 45 - 46 F -- Sun baking the roof might be causing a lot of my problems, will...  more

        Glamping Jeepers July 20, 2020 I have three thermometers in my fridge and none of them read the same. Try moving your thermometer different spots in the fridge and see if you get different ratings. Also keep in mind opening the door of the fridge drops the temperature dramatically. We ...  more

      Glamping Jeepers July 18, 2020 Also if you park with the fridge side of your RV in the shade in the afternoon that helps some

      Jeffrey H Lomb July 18, 2020 I've already placed 2 fans in the back of the unit -- an intake on the side vent and an out-take on the roof. They are Titan thermostatically controlled 12v fans and they have been running constantly -- On temp is 65 F As I said, the unit will ge...  more

      Jeffrey H Lomb July 18, 2020 I guess what I'm asking from people that go for extended periods of time and are in areas that are not always optimal "Shade" do you have problems keeping the Fridge at temps lower than 40 F

        Glamping Jeepers July 18, 2020 Not if the outside temp is 90 or less

      WeMustRV July 20, 2020 My opinion best idea go to resi fridge.
    • Jeffrey H Lomb
      Glamping Jeepers July 20, 2020 A residential is good only if you always have electrical hookups or a very large battery bank and huge solar system. They draw 15-20 amps which is up to 2400 watts. We use propane as we dry camp as much as possible to reduce costs.

        WeMustRV July 20, 2020 I have two resi fridges. The main one is a 23 cubic ft Kemore Elite and. The one in the basement is a small 3 ft fridge. Combined when cooling they draw 2 amps max. I do have 4 240 amp hour batteries.

      Glamping Jeepers July 20, 2020 That is very different information from what I looked up and quite an improvement. It does appear that during defrost cycle it takes 6 to 700 watch for 30 minutes. I went camping one long weekend with two other coaches that had residential refrigerators. ...  more

        WeMustRV July 21, 2020 If I run totally off grid I can run 10-12 hours with the fridges running and some DC lighting and 1 120V TV(TV and lights not running continuously).  Then I do have to run the generator for a couple hours to bring the charge back up to full.  I ...  more

      Glamping Jeepers July 21, 2020 I can’t really be sure but they might have made some coffee in the morning. I do know most all the cooking was done outside and there was no need for heat or AC. I know they did not watch TV. I have been talking to a guy that builds solar systems and he d...  more

      RV Fishing Adventures July 21, 2020 We have two rigs, one is a 5er and the other is an Airstream - both with nearly identical Dometic fridges. Our fridge in the 5er kept things frozen and cold when we only had one AC in the Texas heat for 4 summers. We had a little trouble when it was abo...  more

      Bruce & Dorothy July 22, 2020 Norcold is sometimes called never cold.  My 1200 unit recently went bad and I converted over to the Amish 12 volt compressor system.  Kids had rock solid popsicles for the first time ever.  We liked the idea of the super efficiency compress...  more
