HELP! 2007 3000RK Refrigerator not Cooling

I have a 2007 Montana 3000RK and the Dometic Freezer is cooling down to 28 degrees, but the refrigerator is only down to 57 degrees. Does anyone know what would cause this. Of course we are going camping tomorrow! Refrig/freezer is a single refrig door with a single freezer door.

Thanks,
Igoo65

Make sure the fridge fan is working. Leave an open space right down the middle of the shelves.
Buy a fridge fan to help air circulation through the cooling fins at the back of the fridge.
Make sure the temperature sensor slide on the fin is all the way to the top.
Check your door seals. Put a piece of paper in the door jam, close the door then pull the paper out. If there is no resistance, bad seal, OR the door needs adjustment. Repeat this all the way around the doors. Make sure the center flap closes properly. Adjust door as necessary.

Thanks for the information. This morning I woke up and the refrigerator and freezer was completely off. The display was dark. I verified that I had power to the refrigerator board and the fuses were good. Any ideas of what may have happened.
By the way, the refrigerator is a Dometic RM2862.
Thanks

If the freezer was operating and the frig was not, many times the culprit is a bad cooling unit.

Maybe try the magnet reset?
Look it up on YouTube.

Same thing happened on mine. In 2009, the cooling system failed. Replaced under extended warranty, still going strong.

When I was trying to figure out what was wrong, I was told that if they cooling unit did not feel warm when on, it was failing.

Take off the lower cover on the outside and touch the cooling unit. Warm good, cold bad.
