On the eastern shore of Virginia for a month. No having problems. Everything checks out unit running on gas, idiot lights are on. The refrigerator
Is still not getting cold. Even put in one of those little fans. No help. Any Ideas? It’s a 2016 Norcold.

Look around the shield where the burner is as the boiler most common leak area. If there is any greenish yellow stain its toast.

Are the external fans working? Our stopped and we couldn't keep the frig cold. Had morning sun and it was hot. We didn't have awning out because of wind. Hubby installed computer fan to blow up in outside compartment, we pulled our awning for shade and frig is now running at 34 degrees. Made about a 10 degree difference. Check fans to see if working.

Norcold OEM fans originally were mid position center line jus above absorber tubes....pull air in lower vent up thru absorber tubes then push air up across condenser fins and then out upper vent

Now Norcold is installing them up higher so they are accessible w/o having to pull fridge

Fans down low near lower vent try to push air which is less 'directed' then by pulling air UP
Although anything to enhance draft is GOOD
