SOURCE: Lack of cooling in upper cabinet
The unit has quit going into automatic defrost. This could be one of 3 things. The defrost control, the bi-metal thermostat, or the defrost heater. You would typically need a multi meter to figure out which problem you have.

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Ok, I realize I'm a little late on chiming in here, is this unit located in a slideout, and/or the top outside vent is in the wall not a roof located vent?
If so then the issue is that there are fans that are necessary to circulate air thru the hot coils. And there is probably a malfuntioning thermostat to turn these fans on/off. I had this issue with same fridge in a Gulfstream motorhome, and the temporary fix was to pull the faston connectors off the thermostat and tied them together with a 12V fuse, and taped it up with electrical tape to keep it from shorting on fridge chassis and parts. Replace the thermostat at your conveniance, as these fans are now running whenever fridge is on, and will run your batteries down if not plugged into shore power.

If it's like mine, cold air from the freezer isn't reaching the fridge section, so you probably have one or both of 2 problems: the circulating fan isn't working and/or the air flow channels are blocked by frost/ice. The fan is probably inside a structure at the back of the freezer that should be removable to check it.
If the fan's running, you have a freeze-up. Solution is to turn everything off, remove food & wait for the ice to melt which will take several hours unless you speed things up with, say, a hand-held hair dryer. This worked for me!
If the fan's not running, you can find a replacement at your local appliance parts dealer.

It sounds like the damper assembly might have failed or be stuck open. The damper is mounted in the left side upper rear corner of the refrigerator section. The damper controls the amount of cold air that comes into the refrigerator section from the freezer.
If you want to repair the refrigerator yourself you should disconnect the power to the refrigerator and remove the 2 screws holding the damper cover to the center wall. Sometimes you can spray the damper with WD40 and free it up.
