Any idea what makes that reset button kick out? Think that will be a continous problem?

The chimney switch causes control to shut down for elec or gas to stop because of chimney overheating. If no lights you have no 12VDC being fed to the terminal board, proceeds through the fuse you checked and into lights and door switch. You probably have not panel control inside, Led or LCD controls. If this is the case the power from the fuse panel is not reaching the reefer. Bad supply fuse or loose connection enroute. Time for a voltmeter and check for power at the terminal strip input, the output of the fuse panel etc. You're getting warmer......

I must ask, what is the chimney for the fridge. Is it a vent to the roof. Mine is in a slide so I do not have one of these.

Yours has one also, it is the vent for the gas burner and goes out the vent above and behind the frig.

The chimney (RV reefers) is the heat source for the refrigerant, in the Chimney the 120 volt elements are housed and at the bottom the gas burner. Either one or the other heats the gas in the tubing inside, the heat and exhaust cools as it goes up and exhausts into the roof vent or in your case the upper vented door of the fridge. The lower vent door allows cool air to cool the remaining components of the back of the fridge, the condenser at the top of the heap. The cooling air and the hot gas exhaust together at the same place.
