Fridge & freezer not cooling properly

We have a 2015 Thor Challenger with a whirlpool residential fridge. The fridge is running, but barely cooling the items. We are plugged into 50 amps. Any suggestions, knobs are turned up to max coolness.

I have zero trouble shooting experience on residential frigs. I guess the good news is that a regular appliance repair person can probably figure it out which could be cheaper than an RV facility.

We recently had the 18 month old frig in our home quit cooling. Repairmen came and took one look at compressor and coils and knew there was some type of blockage and needed a new compressor. It took him about 5 minutes to figure it out.
