3 way refrigerator lights on gas but warms instead of cools

hi, I have a 13 foot park liner with a 3 way refrigerator. Runs fine on shore power. Lights on gas ( I have had it in for service twice. gas lines have been cleaned. Orifice cleaned and new thermocupler installed.) brought it home yesterday and this morning the thermometer was up to 50 and climbed to 62degrees).
I have verified that the refrigerator is level.
an thoughts, ideas? much appreciated.

I thot Parkliner only made 15 foot trailers. - we have a 2106.
the fridge takes a long time - like overnight - to cool down.
MAKE SURE that you have ONLY ONE energy source on at a time.
Shut OFF both the green and red switches before lighting the gas.

OP is probably going by the cabin size, which is what many conventional RV manufacturers use to describe their models. Depending on who I’m talking to, I sometimes describe my Scamp as a 10’er.

Measuring travel trailers by total length, including tongue and bumper, is the older convention, still used by molded fiberglass manufacturers, so on this site I call mine a 13’ Scamp.

There are two Parkliners, a 15’ and a 16’. Both have the same size cabin.

Back to the fridge… besides checking settings, verify the flame remains lit and the flame tube and upper exhaust vent is unobstructed. Seems like it was tested overnight. That should be enough time to cool down.

So who decides how to measure length?
the 15' Parkliner has a 12' body. our 16' Scamp had a 13' body. Our 13' scamp had a 10' body.

"They" decide. "We" just have to live with it.
