Fridge question

I have a question about the fridge button for auto/gas. For some reason my button won't engage the auto. I have to press it several times. Is it a bad switch or does the unit does some evaluating prior to engaging is allowed? I am plugged into electrical and have propane on.

Yes, mine doesn't work on auto either. Propane is OK but no auto. Taking it into the dealers soon and let them figure it out.

Cool

Keep me posted on your dealer visit.

Mine engages but with several tries and only if I turn the unit off and then on again. Thus I asked if the unit does an evaluation first.

Anyone else unit working?

I am having a like problem with mine.
Works fine on auto /gas but not on 115v I will be looking at the fuses behind a plastic cover in the access panel outside.
The cover is on the left side behind the power cord.

So your button for auto/gas engages easily every time?

OK, the LEFT button is the ON/OFF button; it must be in for the fridge to work at all. With this button IN and the GAS button OUT the fridge is in AUTO (light ON) and will use AC power, IF it is available, and will switch to GAS automatically if the AC power fails (DC is still required from the battery).

The right button FORCES the fridge out of AUTO. It MAKES it use gas and it will never switch back to AC if it is restored. With the gas button IN, ALL lights should be OFF. If the CHECK light comes on it means the gas did not light.

I understand how it works. But i think you have it backward. The button OUT means gas only. The button IN means auto. Mine will not stay IN (auto). The button won't stick in the IN position.

That could be. Camper is in the driveway, but I am out of commission with a severe allergic reaction to the tree pollen. Anyway, the auto light only works when you have de-selected gas.

If the button is broken you will need a new display board.
