Just used my fridge for the 1st time since we bought the RRS (about 1.5 months) and it never got cold. Guess I have to take it in, anyone else have/had this problem?

The internal sides should get cold to the touch within 5-10 minutes I think. If you're using it to cool room temperature items down, it's not going to do a great job at that unless they're in there for a long time. The fridge is best used for road trips (i.e. travel greater than an hour or so) and placing items in it that are already cold - they'll stay just as cold as if they were in a real fridge. Love loading up the little one's milk in there. `)

1.5 months? I think that is a bit longer. If it is newly bought it must have a warranty to the company you bought or something like that. If it has no maintenance repair I will choose to buy another fridge.

Um Randy? I think you forgot the link to the website selling Viagra.

Hi

Can you tell me how this worked. I am about to install a fridge where the storage bin was. Is the wiring job complicated?

Regards

Mine stop working at about 125K miles and the dealer wanted like $500 to fix/replace it.
You have 125k on tour RRS?! Kudos man! It's probably something stupid like the relay - I'd pull it apart at the very least.

TO THE OP:

What fridge did you buy? Is it OEM? Is it used? Is it a peliter device? We need WAY more information than you're giving us! I believe factory vehicles with the fridge used an external remotely located relay with low current at the power switch. If you don't have these electronics you'll have to mount a relay at the location of the switch and use the power wire for both - I believe you DO have power running to an unused plug near the cubby for vehicles that would use this option. The OEM peliter devices actually use a LOT of current, and the working mechanisms are actually rather large. I'm guessing aftermarket units won't have such a large element / fan but you'll still need to use a relay.

Oh and FWIW mine gets SCARY cold after only ~15 minutes or so.

I just figured it would be nice to stash a few little water bottles to make them cool. I'd rather have the space for other stuff though:-/

Any after market filler kits?
