Ok.. none of what you have done involved taking the back off.. if you can get to the compressor itself, you will find it has a dinky 'computer' style fan.. but invariably, some fool of a designer, runs wires very close, and uses low quality cable ties.. which break, causing the wires to spring up and jam the fan.. (especially if it has been moved recently) significantly reducing your compressors ability to chill your appliance.

get some decent cable ties, check and secure rogue wires, and things should sort themselves back to the right temperatures within a few hours.

Temp will only get to 12 degrees at bottom of the fridge at highest setting

either your camper vent door between the refrige and freezer isn't closing or is frozen wide open so as not to shut off cold air inrush from the freezer or the compressor cold control is locked and won't let the compressor cycle on and off as necessary,or a combination of both of these issues

I have an indest ban 12 nf.fridge is not cold but freezer working

If your unit is like most it has one circulating fan that produces the circulation for both the freezer and refrigerator. When this fan starts to wear out the rpms are reduced to a point that the freezer will be cold but the refrigerator will not cool. The minimum cost to repair this problem is around $300.00
