5.0 fridge on 120V.
I think it's on 4, but don't want to open the door to find out. Really hard to see the setting on this fridge.
Some info; not all. Left home at 9:30 am with fridge turned off, loaded with food and refreshments and sitting at 36F. Arrived at camp at 3:30pm. Temp in trailer 79.5F and in fridge was 46F.

Been on electric since. Some discussion with wife when she held the door open while sorting through food in a bin on the counter.

I load fridge with beer etc. the night before so it has all night to cool down again. This morning it was 35.2F in fridge, 73.8F in trailer.
This afternoon it was 36.1F in fridge and 80.8F in trailer.

Glen at this point I am jealous ! Sounds like your frig is similar to what I use to have . Anyway this frig works good as long as I run my fans and the temp stays at 80 or below .. Maybe like old vehicles old frigs will become very valuable . Pat
