CMoore-Trvlr I have had a similar problem with my 2007 Sunseeker refrigerator and
the lights in both of my pop-outs. RV repair place tried several times to correct, including new wiring from the fuse panel to the pop-outs. Final fix was the replace-ment of the fuse/power distribution panel. All seems to work well now. I have since purchased a surge protector just in case that is what caused my problem. BillRV

Did you check your battery(s). If the voltage from the battery is low, the gas valves won't open.

Posting a follow-up as a lesson learned for others and extending my thanks to those that reached out with suggestions. I called around and found most RV shops couldn't take my trailer for weeks. Mays RV service in Lewisville, Tx not only agreed to look at it the same day but had it fixed at a reasonable cost in 24 hours. The issue was, as most suspected, a rodent(s) got into the trailer and chewed a lot of wires and not just in one location but three different locations (including the electrical brakes connection) in the trailer. I'll be taking a more proactive approach to protecting my trailer from rodents.

Had one try to squeeze between the board and heat sync on my converter one winter...I'm guessing to get warm. Well, he got warmed up alright. It literally fried him and the board. Rats are matter if they have 4 legs or 2. haha
