There's several fuses behind fridge in outside panel.
Lower right behind a black cover.

You do have a full battery right?

Yes battery is full. My husband is outside while I'm inside watching it attempt to ignite.

Level will not prevent lightoff, do you also have 120 volt 2 way fridge? Meanwhile most common cause of no light is misalign of igniter or gas blockage( less common). Can you reach in with barbecue hand lighter while it runs start up mode?

It means the spark igniter is not working or not aligned properly.

Have you had it running on elect. ? Is the refrigerator cold and you just want to start running it on gas. If so it may be cold enough. and wont ignite the burner till it needs to get colder. Remember there is NO pilot on the new models.

Check your 12V battery charge sounds like the gas valve is not opening that is controlled by the circuit board that needs 12 volt DC very common problem I have seen. Good Luck

I'll answer this as best I can. It ran on gas before our trip 2 weeks ago, and then turned onto electric at the campsite. It sat for 2 weeks and then we attempted to light it yesterday. Can you elaborate on the No pilot on newer models part? We could see the flame attempting to ignite last night but nothing happened. You could even hear the puff of flame but it never caught and would then start the cycle again. Hope that makes sense.
