Use mine all the time, like others also carry a 12v cooler.
It keeps the fridge about 5 degrees colder. When temps are in mid to high 90's the fridge want to be in mid to upper 40's. The small 12v computer fan on the upper vent grate dropped temps down by about 5 degrees.
I use mine every trip. Between it and a Yeti cooler I have no problems keeping food cold. The yeti will keep ice up to 8 days with pretty constant use.
Since we do our cooking outside we rely on one of those high-tech coolers which lasts for five days. We use the fridge mostly for beverages. Neither the wife or I like getting down on our hands and knees to find what we are looking for.
I do I pre cool it before every trip with 3 2gal frozen jugs of water.
Replaced ours with a 12V Engel - something that works in hot weather [we have a good solar PV system on the Aliner]
Every trip! Food in the fridge and drinks in a cooler with ice so the fridge isn't opened all the time. Pre-cool before trip. Any meat planned for after 2nd day goes in frozen. Fill all empty space with cold or frozen bottles of water. When I take something out I throw a couple cold bottles of water from the cooler in. Keeping it full helps maintain even temp from night to day.
We don't use our fridge much. Sometimes have waters in it. We camp in Bear country, see them almost every trip. The wife wont allow food in the camper, even in the fridge. I am thinking about installing an AC in the fridge opening.
