Dometic Fridge 5 Amp Fuse Continues to blow

Hope someone can help on this!
We have a Dometic Fridge (RM1350 Model # RM1350MSSX Serial # 23592641) and the 5 amp fuse continues to blow whenever multiple appliances are turned on. We have had the Fridge looked at by 3 different certified Dometic service techs and they all conclude they do not know what causes the blown fuses. The fuse blows whether we are plugged into 50 amp or 30 amp.

When the dryer, and washer and hot water heater are on or the dirt devil vacuum (only) is turned on, the 5 amp fuse blows in the circuit board. Apparently this is a common problem based upon a google search. Does anyone have an idea? How to prevent this? Perhaps swapping out the 5 amp with a 7.5 amp fuse?

If you could email your thoughts directly to me at :

Your help is gratefully appreciated.

If you have an empty slot in your fuse panel, run a separate line from the spare slot to the fridge board. Do you have an internal fridge fan? You can change out the fridge light to LED.
