How long has it been on?
Anything in it?
It’s a single cooling unit. Cools the freezer, then spills down to the fridge. So sounds like it is ‘getting there’
A small dc fan in the fridge can help circulate air and cooling.
Should cool quicker on propane than electric.

The fridge is definitely a lot slower cooling down, it often takes mine almost a day to get the fridge down into the 30's. Is the rv pretty level, sometimes the freon doesnt circulate good if off level. A little is no deal but if it is sitting on a slope that isnt helping. If you think there is a problem you can pull the thermistor loose and let it hang. It is attached to the fins and tells the system when it is cool.

No freon in these units.

Don't know what your issue is but ours operates much more efficiently (and colder) when we run on LP.
Another thing is that when going down the road (running on automatic) the check light would come on, and we wold have to reset the fridge (turn off and turn on), while on LP we have no issues on the road. Had CW investigate but could not find anything (no surprise).

Found a large junk of ice in freezer. Switched to LP it's running at 3 9 now. Thanks for all your help.
