outdoor antenna and refridgerator question

We recently purchased our first RV ... a 2007 Greyhawk 31SS with less than 10,000 miles. Everything is immaculate and we've had very few things to address upon ownership. When we got it home the generator would not stay running so we took it back to the dealership (Kennedale Campers near Dallas, Texas) and they put a new carburetor and fuel pump on the generator; runs like a charm now. It had 800 hours on it so I'm sure it needed some service from lack of use over 6 years.

After our first outing in Galveston we had two questions:

1. On the exterior entertainment center next to the stereo is that antenna plug for the tv? We're assuming that you can plug a tv into that outlet and connect the antenna and watch tv outside?

2. Our Norcold refridgerator worked perfectly in the freezer but the refridgerator was barely cold. Do we need to replace it? We found something on YouTube where we removed the exterior panel and blew the dust out of the tin ductwork but that didn't help. We fear that since the RV has that few miles over 6 years that it sat a lot and perhaps the cooling tubes have clogged. Any suggestions? We thought about taking it back to the dealer but it's a 2+ hour drive one-way and they already put a lot of money into the generator and we didn't purchase an extended warranty. Plus, we feel that we got a very good deal on the unit.

I would contact the dealer on the refrigerator especially if you are under a warranty. It is better to get them to fix the problems now will you can get them to. It is their business and they sound like a reputable place to buy from

Sometimes there's a simple flap type adjustment to control how much coolant goes into the frig area and how much goes into the freezer area.

Just a thought. The same coolant cools both, so it seems like your coolant is circulating properly.

Sounds like your Fridge is probably Ok. It's not like a home Fridge.. the freezer will get cold fast .. you have to run it 8hrs or so before putting any food in the fridge (Freezer is ok) and never put warm or hot food in it.
