I am pretty sure that the climate control switch controls the exterior moisture. I normally leave this off. If you are dry camping and the switch is on it will drain the batteries pretty fast (this happened to us on our first trip). What is the thermostat set at in the fridge?

The fridge takes a lot longer than the freezer to cool down on most of these units especially when it's hot outside. I'm not sure about you're model fridge but on mine the switch on the inside of the top freezer door is basically a defroster which you shouldn't need to use hardly ever. Also it uses a large amount of 12 volt power so only use it if you've got AC power. It will quickly drain your batteries if you're dry camping.

The recall in a quick fix for any repair center. My buddy has a mobile RV repair business and it took him 10-15 min to add the shields in the kit. call around, you can probably get it done either before you camp or while enroute. :)
