I was out for a week long trip and the meat we kept in the fridge didnt keep good at all. We had to throw out 2 porterhouses and some bacon too. The temp gauge in the fridge said it had temps that were in the safe range but the meat only lasted about 3-4 days and then went bad. Dont our fridges have the coolness to keep meat for longer than a day or two?

Anyone else have this problem and how did you fix it?Edited by: fixit5561

My freezer is always the coldest of cold. When I check it, it is always about 5-10 dgs. Even when the fridge warms up due to outside temps, the freezer stays very cold.

Keep the meat in the lower, coldest part of the fridge, or freeze it and thaw it when you need it. Thats what we do.

The meat was on the lowest shelf in the fridge, thats why I was asking about it. Maybe it was just the heat and having a 7yr old that likes to keep the fridge door open alot. I dont know.



I plan on just freezing everything from now on and then take it out when we want to use it.

Our frig is coldest on the top shelf.. I never put anything there that might not live near frozen. And I usually keep the meat in the freezer and thaw when needed.

Get a cooler for the 7 year old's drinks, etc.

we never had an issue with the fridge in the 4 years we've had the camper.

my drinks are usually 12 yrs old and older, and they stay in the cupboard until needed. then I usually put them on ice, single malt scotch is what I prefer.

I use a wireless thermometer in the fridge. The ones designed to measure outside temps. Lets you monitor fridge and freezer temps if you have two transmitters without opening the door. I usually have to run fridge on lower settings and have never lost any meat.

Is it me, or does meat just not taste as good after it's been frozen?
