Refrigerator not working

We have a wildcat by forest river. We got it out today Togo camping and refrigerator is not working. The new indicator lights are not coming on. It will not work on gas either. The is power going in according to the meter. Any idea what it could be?

You need 12 volts also for it to work. Do you have batteries charged? Battery disconnect? The brand and model of the refrigerator would also get a little better answers.

Thank you. It's a dometicRM2652. The battery seems charged. Lights on trailer worked with it. The inverter works and battery is charged. Power at plug and back but no power at top.

When you turn it on and have it set to gas do you have any lights on the front lite up?

You may have blown a fuse in the mother board. It on the back side of the fridge on outside behind panel where drip line comes out. Mine quit working and I had blown a 1.5 amp fuse in the board. Quick run to auto parts store and bought extra fuses and fixed blown one. Hope this helps.

Light does not come on with gas. Both fuses are fine.

During our recent trip one day everything in our freezer thawed. Never happened again. I suspect the freezer was closed but not latched. (Solid click upon closing.) We had several times the refrigerator door flopped open when we moved even though we thought it was closed. We got in the habit of double checking for that 'click' upon closing before driving. Just a wild guess.


But, while I'm thinking of it...I found in the literature mention of a 'card' to use to hold the refrigerator door open when not in use. There is a little drawing. But I never found the 'card'. Any clue? Was it supposed to be with the instruction manual? Or attached somehow to the refrigerator?

Do you have a way to test that you have 12 volts to your fridge?

Do you have 12 volts at the back as well as the 120 volts?
