It’s important to defrost your RV freezer when ice builds up, as this can reduce its efficiency. Don’t rush the job, though, or you may do more harm that good. For example, using a hairdryer to melt the ice can deform the plastic and metal parts, while using an ice pick or other sharp instrument to break up the ice can damage the interior. It’s best to turn the power off and let the freezer gradually defrost on its own time. While your freezer is defrosting, remove all food and store it someplace cool — such as another freezer, insulated bags or a cooler — until it can be returned. Finally, be sure to thoroughly clean up all the standing water before restarting your freezer, otherwise it will start forming new ice.
