Can an amateur change NorCold 5-amp fuse?

I think the 5-amp fuse on my NorCold 6XX refrigerator may be blown. Have found a service manual online, but can't decide if I should even attempt to remove the power board cover. Maybe this is something an amateur shouldn't attempt to fix. Don't want to mess things up more than they already are. (problem: when I choose 'Auto' my refrigerator only runs off propane, not electricity).

fraz55, my refrigerator would not run on either gas or electricity last fall, and we were 250 miles from home. I talked to my dealer's service department and one of the techs talked me through checking the fuses (turns out that wasn't my problem after all) but they did caution me, if you are plugged into campground electrical service, UNPLUG the refrigerator where it is plugged into a 120v outlet in the back. Finding the fuse isn't difficult...it is accessed by taking off the vent on the outside of the trailer. Fuses are pretty easily seen when the cover is taken off the back of the 'fridge.

My refrig is in a 2011 Rockwood. According to the service manual, the 5-amp fuse is on the power board which is underneath some sort of cover.

Yes you should be able to change yourself.

Turn off the propane. lot's of little things come up on RVs. Do as much online learning as possible. It will save you a lot of money in the long run.Don't try to repair it at this time unless your sure you can do it. Are you already camping? Getting ready to go? Where will you take it? Lot's of stuff involved owning a RV or a 32' ford for that matter.
Good luck

Make sure you unplug from shore power!
