I had a Prowler before tarde for my new V3305. My previous fridge was fast and reach a cool temp from Friday night to Saturday in the afternoon. My new unit fridge, i turn on in Friday and came cool Sunday just before check out.. any hint ?
The fridge should reach food safe temperature within a few hours. The outside temperature does have a bearing, if it is very hot outside it will take longer to cool down. Turn the fridge to a colder setting and try to avoid having the sun shine directly on the outdoor portion of the fridge.
When loading the fridge put cooled foods in and I even throw in an ice block into the freezer to give a helping hand.
Also ensure your rig is fairly level, the newer fridges are not as finicky as the older ones but the more level you can make it the better.
If you try these things and it still takes that long to cool I'd get it checked out on warranty.
I have a V3305 and the freezer seems to cool quicker than the fridge portion does. Seems to do it within a few hours though. I think it helps that I stick a bucket of ice in the freezer and cold items in the fridge to get it to cool down faster.

Level is the BIG thing with these absorption fridges. The dealers will tell you at least 24 hours. Mine is about 2 hours to feel it getting cold in the freezer yet not freezing point. I would say we wait about 4 hours before we load in the frozen meats and refrigerator items.
I keep bottled water (16.9 oz. size) in my freezer at home and use them in both my ice chest for drinks and to put in the freezer and fridge of the TT to help them cool down on the day of preparation. Then when we need bottled water on the trip for drinking, move from the freezer to the fridge to thaw and voila, nice cold water. I also take along several bottles of bottled water to put in the freezer to keep the ice chest supplied as well as to take along biking, hiking, etc.
i leave my fridge on and dont shut it down. i also keep it full of water, both fridge and freezer. just the where are you at now? when will you be done? i do things.
