You may find that your fridge works well to start with but after some driving the temperature increases. One of the most likely causes is a loose wire caused by the shocks of a bumpy road. If you have a leakage meter you can easily check for refrigeration leaks. If you find it, check for any lose connections and refit. If this doesn’t fix the problem contact your local mobile truck mechanic for assistance.
You may find that everything starts out well, however after a few days on the road you notice that the high pressure controller is reading higher, and the low pressure controller is reading lower. This is likely caused by the drying agent in the reservoir being saturated. This is caused by ice blocking the expansion throttle. You can easilyfix this by emptying the refrigerant, changing the expansion valve and refilling the refrigerant. If that sounds all to hard book in your local mobile truck mechanic.
This is likely due to no or little wire connection at the TDS. To fix this yourself you can use a multimeter to check the connection and voltage at the TDS. If low voltage check and adjust the connections. If that fails your best bet is to book in your local mobile truck mechanic.
