Refrigerator not working and photos of Camano
 
3 Attachment(s)
Houston, I've got a problem. Never turned on refrigerator until I arrived at Camano Island State Park. Seemed to take a long time for things to cool down. Actually, they never really did.

Day before yesterday I bought a refrigerator thermometer. I'm in the "Danger Zone." Threw out chicken I had purchased.

Trailer is level.

I will take my thermometer to the camp hosts (no one else is in the park) and ask them to put in their refrigerator, just to check the reading. Actually, that will only help for the future but just curious.

So . . . before I contact ETI, does anyone have any suggestions?

Other than that, everything is fantastic. I lucked into the most awesome site sitting over Puget Sound with a perfect view of heavenliness.

There are Orcas, Humpbacks and porpoises that go through here. Haven't seen any yet but did see two beautiful eagles glide oh-so-slowly past this morning.

Ellen, not to be insulting but what are you running on, 110v, 12v, or propane? And how many bars are you set at. You should have it set to 5 bars.

No insult taken! I'm running on propane and it is set at 5 bars.

Did you try it on 110v, or 12v if you have solar?

Detail will help. On propane, electric? Other info? Even when working well takes overnight to cool down. Longer if warm food. Are the fins cold?

I suspect that time is on your side. Most of us plug our empty refers in the night before embarking on a trip and then stock it with cold (and frozen) food.

Propane stove works?

Battery cutoff switch "up"?

No electric available. Not at the site now -- went into town to use Starbucks' wifi. Will try on 12V but in a rush to get this perfect site, didn't notice that it is completely covered with trees, plus it's has rained most every day. Reading got down to 11. Am a little nervous about running the refrigerator on 12V under the circumstances. Do you know the lowest reading it is safe to get down to with solar?

On propane. It's been on for a couple of days now. Haven't checked the fins. Will do that when I get back to the site. Thanks, Carl!

That makes sense, Karen. I stocked with almost all room temp foods. But still, it's been a few days already. ???
