Did you check the inverter's reset or breaker?

The only reset I found on it was a black button and it was not kicked out. There were no error codes and the inverter was on. There was a short because of loose connections from factory to the electrical hook ups. The service tech tightened them but forgot to check the Fridge and when I got it the Fridge still didnt work even though he tightened loose connections

Did the tech unplug the fridge? My inverter output feeds a duplex ac outlet close to it in the basement. The fridge is plugged into that. Of coarse you don’t need the inverter on if you are plugged into shore power. Just a thought...

Get something 110 like a light or radio and plug into the inverter.

Then the outlet the fridge is plugged into.

I use a voltmeter.

Got to narrow down the choices here.

Batteries need to be charged. Fully!

No , I cant even see the plug it is behind the fridge in the enclosed space. He didnt do anything to the Fridge because he did not realize he was supposed to check it. ........He told me it wasnt on the bill and I read it to him, then he apologized for not checking it. He did fix the loose connections and the front landing gear switch is working again

I have to pull the fridge out of its space and im not sure how to do that , plus I dont want to mess up the warranty. However I did not want to turn around and haul it back down to the rv shop that is over an hour away again. I have to take it back Thursday again and spend more money for gas ......

Does it operate when the rv is plugged into a 110 volt extension cord? Step,one. If not you are not plugged in or the fridge is toast. You do have several dog bones?

Stuff in these rvs are complex. Going to,the dealer is the final,solution.
