Also check the thermistor (little wire attached to the fins inside) and make sure it is attached to a fin and is not pushed all the way to the top,

Thanks everyone for all the input. Next trip is this weekend and I hope to have a little fan by then to circulate air. I will update. I'd sure like to post photos but I can't get them to show.

with the thermistor unplugged. remove the thermistor from the fins in the fridge. place it in a glass of ice water for a few minutes. while it is in there, use an ohm meter to measure the resistance of the thermistor. should be about 30,000 ohms. 30kohm.
if it is way off this number, then the thermistor is bad. if it is close to this, then the control board is the most likely culprit.

Where did you get your fan(model #) and where did you wire it for power?

If your fridge has an interior light, you can connect it using a spade connector without having to splice wires. I got mine on e-bay for less than $15 with free shipping.

So, what we've discovered is that as long as we completely turn the fridge off during the day and then let it run overnight (at the lowest setting), the fridge items won't freeze and yet the freezer keeps everything solidly frozen. Saving extra battery and propane this way, and no fan needed!

Something still isn't right though. We leave our fridge on all day and night and we never have any problems with food freezing. I'd take it in to the dealer and have them check it out.

I will...once camping season is over. Long drive to the dealer, and I can't part with it! For now, it gets the job done.
