Refrigerator Cooling Time?

Going to do some driveway camping tonight with the kids.

Trailer is hooked up to house power. I turned the the fridge switch on to auto and the cooling switch to 5. How long will it take for the fridge to start cooling down?? It has been on for about an hour now and I don't feel it getting cool yet. The green light is on so it has power. Would it cool down quicker if I turned it over to gas? Only turning it on so I can put some milk in it for the morning.

It is a 2016 Jay Flight 26BH.

Thank you in advance for your replies

Usually about 24 hrs, you should feel the bottom of the freezer starting to get cold in an about an hour or so.

Ok thanks. I just checked and the bottom of the freezer is pretty cold as you said! Good to go!

I usually start mine on lp first and let it get cold as it seems to cool down quicker on lp , then I switch it to electric after about 2 hours

Such a nice night and weekend here in the northeast, couldn't pass it up! Only the second time we've slept in the new TT.

Enjoy!!

Told the DW that I thought it was a good idea to do some driveway camping when we get the new 5er rather than going away for the weekend....just to make sure everything works well. She gave me that look.... So I suggested we build a fire in the neighbors yard next to the trailer and enjoy our morning coffee just like we were in a camp ground. She thinks I'm nuts ��.

Anyhow...I always start the refer on lp rather than electric. Cools faster and is supposedly not as hard on the refer. Don't know about that but it sure does cool more quickly. Couple hours is all it takes...

We do the same before a trip. I can only speak for whatever norcold our trailer has. It should be all the way cold in less than 12 hours even on electric .. I turn it on the night before and my wife packs it the next morning and it's down to temp on just electric.
