Your voltage supply is being interrupted. The DC voltage needs to be at least 10.5 to work properly. If you are switching from shore to gen this can cause the interuption also. I presume the gas supply is staying on when you are traveling.

If I remember right on those, the system works off 12 volt--120 volt-- or propane (LP gas). have you tried one of the other power source to run it off of?? If you get the same type cooling results the problem is probably a small leak in the freon system. Those use special internal gas. When I worked for GE the only way to fix them was to replace the complete cooling system which came pre-charged with the special internal gas. Quite expensive after the warranty. Now if you switch power source and one of the other sources make it work the problem will be with the type power you were using when it failed to cool properly. Many people that had system problems with those camper type refrigerators removed them and installed a small regular dorm style refrigerator that could only be run off a 120 volt power system. You would need a 12 volt to 120 converter to run it while on the road if thats what you want to do.
It is all working on one system. It sounds like the thermistor inside the refrigerator is either in the wrong place or has failed. The white clip with the wire in it should be between the first and second fin. The higher you slide it up the colder it should get. If it is set right then go to the back of the refrigerator and remove the black cover from the circuit board. On the left of the circuit board you will see two harnesses plugged in. Unplug the lower harness (the one with two wires in it) and allow it to run for 24 hours. If the refrigerator cools down then you need to replace the thermistor.
