Well I have absorption fridge and I find the opposite. In really hot weather, I sometimes find it can’t keep up, and get real frustrated when wife keeps door open for more than a second or two. But when we’ve camped in cold weather, it does great. Often the fridge gets so cold water jug begins to freeze and I have to move it off the coldest setting.

Altitude is also a factor.

When you pose the question, “Fact or Fiction,” it is implied that after one guesses, the true answer must be given. Right?

So true as it happened. I put a small light outside in fridge compartment and worked like a charm.
