Put a thermometer in the refer and see what it says. If it is within a couple of degrees of freezing, read the next paragraph.
In a Dometic you have a Thermister. It is a thermometer, just called a thermister. It is located in the rear of the refer at the top. It is in a white plastic clip that is on the right side of the fins. Dometic says RAISE the clip to lower the temp in the refer. It will make a few degrees difference in the refer.
If your temp is way below freezing, the thermister is probably bad and letting the refer run all the time.

We had another customers trailer freezing everything and had to replace it last summer. It really sounds like the same thing and his thermister is not working. When that happens, the refer. just runs and runs. No control.
Moving it on the fins will only change the temp. a couple of degrees. Need to put the thermometer in it overnight and see what it says.
