Fridge not staying cold while moving

The refrigerator in our Freedom Elite 28FE won't stay cold while on the road, gas or AC/generator. It recovers when we stop for a while. The freezer stays below freezing at the same time. Outside temps are in the mid 80s to the mid 90s. The gas flame looks good at a standstill. Any ideas?

Sounds like the fridge door seal is leaking. Use the dollar bill test to check.

Yep door seal may be leaking. Also how much "stuff" is in the fridge? The fins in the back need some room to circulate the cold air. If everything is piled right on the fins the cooling will be inhibited. We have used a small RV fridge fan we got at Camping World when the fridge is loaded for bear, helps circulate the cold air around the food items.
