The check light usually means when not on shore power electricity and fridge in 'auto' the check light means the flame didn't light on propane. Sometime just turning it off and retrying will correct the flameout situation.

Thanks for the tips everyone! I'll connect that sensor to the right side cooling fin and go from there.

Ok...so I clipped the sensor to right most fin. Plugged in the trailer and now the fridge doesn't work unless I turn on the propane. Fridge was working on AC only when I first checked it out for purchase.... Am I doing something wrong?

Unrelated coincidence. Check the circuit breaker the fridge is on. Take something portable outside and plug it in to the outlet where the fridge is plugged in and see if that works. I believe there is a fuse for AC power on the circuit board as well.

Thanks Barry. I 've checked the breakers and the fuses and all looks good. I plugged a drill into the outlet and it works. Works perfectly on propane.

So I moved the sensor up to the cooling fins. Was out for a night last night and the fridge is still going down to minus 10 celsius. Everything frozen again. What was weird is I shut the fridge on/off button to "off" and the pilot stayed on and continued to cool. Will the fridge continue to run off the battery power? Two new 6 volt batteries and they seem to be going down pretty quick. I had to shut the gas off to get the pilot to go out. I'm stumped.... or maybe stupid!

You shut it off and it kept running? It broke.

Probably needs a new circuit board, but I think you may need a service tech to decide that.

I agree with Barry you need to get it checked, to answer your question "Will the fridge continue to run off the battery power?" the answer is yes Battery + Propane will run it but not battery alone without propane. Shore power (or Generator) will run it without propane and/or battery (it always needs 12 volt for the control circuit but if no battery connected the TT converter will provide the 12 volts).

Check out this UTube video looks like your problem is a bad Thermister (the wire you attached). Still yours is new and should go in under warranty.
