Thanks for all the options there, on my fridge there is no slider to adjust the temp. It has the setting on the outside by number 1-5. When we got home from the trip I turned off the fridge and let the fridge cool down, I waited a couple days and re-started it seems to be cooling just fine again. I'm going to get a fridge fan to help with the airflow, but at least I have an option of what to do if it happens on the next trip which will be at the beginning of August. Taking the family to Hershey park.

The slider I am referring to is located on the back wall of the fridge itself. In this case I am not talking about the temperature control switch that is located on the front of the fridge, and usually numbered from 1 to 5. On my 26BH it is a wire that connects to a metallic piece and it can slide up or down. The dealership guy told me that it's a good way to adjust just the fridge temp itself.

I believe the slide-like thing is only found on the dometic refrigerators. I think jayco only uses norcold units, and they do not have the slide on the fins. Hope this helps. Lots of people seem to have problems with the freezer working and the fridge not. And it is regardless of brand. As much as these fridges cost, it pathetic that they are not built better. Hope this helps.

DB, I had the same issue and thought it was not working properly. My RV shop told me it is because the trailer was not level. I bought one of these little bubble things that has a circle in it. If the inner bubble is in the circle, the trailer is level enough and I my fridge gets cold.
Hope this helps.
