I think Dometic has made a half dozen different models snd FR has used them all at one time or another. Sense I got back in to camping I have seen 4 different fridges. All FR trailers.

Take the panel off the outside and look for the little solenoid and gas get. Measure the voltage at the solenoid. If the solenoid is opening, the auto ignition should be trying to light the pilot. It will only try for a while if it doesn't light. If you want to rule out air, crack the flare fitting going into the pilot and let it bleed till you smell the propane.

If you don't have 12 volts to the solenoid and don't hear the auto ignite, pull the little cover to the left and check the 2 fuses.

The battery was fully charged, my setting are either auto or gas. Auto, I assume, it uses Bayshore power gas it uses battery power and gas.
I tested it again on gas only after having used the gas for a little and seemed to function properly.
I tend to believe it was air in the gas line. The fridge wouldn't work on auto even if plugged into the truck during travel but the check light would turn off as as it was connected to the 30 amp.

So I am guessing it is working properly now? I am glad to here that, enjoy it! Hope you have some great trips!

When running on propane, the fridge flame is barely larger than that of a pilot light. Depending on the length of line beyond a higher-volume-using appliance like the range, it may take several failed attempts to purge the air from that last run of line, as you have now learned.

I have kinda the reverse. Plugged into home yesterday to chill the fridge. Freezer was very cold. Fridge was warm and I noticed the check light on. I did not have the gas turned on at the tank. Then after some time the check light came on. I have the auto or gas button only on my dometic. I moved the thermistor up on the fin and turned gas on and now it works. Any clue?
