New to this forum, We have a early 2014 36fb and we are full timers we are very happy with are Redwood, But like some of you we have had a few small issues. But nothing that I couldn't repair myself. We travel for work and we have recently discovered that if the outside air temp gets below 32 degrees and colder the fridge will quit working what a surprise.

Congratulations on purchasing a Redwood and welcome to the forum. Lots of great information and experienced owners to assist.

Sorry but can't help with this issue as we plan to never experience temperatures approaching 32F and definitely not when below.

I have not had a problem with my fridge until recently. we have a dometic and it has worked just fine at temps below 0. however, it recently quit cooling and won't hold steady, anywhere between 42 and 49. Not good! we have ordered a new Samsung residential and will be replacing it soon. hope you find the issue with yours.

Welcome and congratulations!

That is not a normal condition for the fridge. Plenty of folks on here are staying in the single digits and have not stated the fridge shut down. In fact, they still make ice.

I will say that it shouldn't, but there seems to be a few on the Montana Forum (where I'm still a member) that have had issues with their fridge same as yours. Some had luck putting a Trouble Lite in the back of the fridge to warm up the coolant a little so it would flow and cool the inside.
