Pull the bottom vent to see if the LP is lighting.

On our 2011 I don't see where to check it. I'll take a picture. I first tried to run it when we were not level. Hope that didn't cause issues.

When I turn my propane on after filling I have to turn the stove on to make sure it is getting propane.

I have a 2011 also and the fridge takes a long time to cool down. When I start a trip I put ice or ice packs in the freezer and fridge to help it cool down. I keep my food in a cooler until we get to our destination. I put my fridge on auto for either gas or electric. I think you have to purge the gas line and the fridge should work on propane.

I put the fridge on the night or day before traveling. It takes forever for the thermometer to move. One sure way to check (even shortly after firing up) is to open the freezer and put your palm on the freezer floor. If you feel nothing there; sorry to say that it is not working.
