Check your propane detector. If your propane detector is not turned on, your stove, furnace and fridge will not work. It's happened to me twice now. Easy to overlook since I turn mine off when stored. Mine looks like this.

Gas to fridge

I turn on gas at tanks then purge lines by lighting a stove burner. May take a while. Then turn off stove and turn on fridge. You will here gas valve open and ignition start. If it does not light within a short time the fridge will turn off. You have to turn fridge off then on to try again. Mine takes 3 attempts then runs fine.

You can also look in the access panel from the outside of the fridge (I do this on my EVO for the fridge and Water heater). I do not know if it is the same on your rig, mines a TT.

Sounds like your fridge will not lite and that your electronic pilot is not working. This is a problem for some people when driving but if it is doing it when parked that's my bet. put tt on shore power and put fridge on auto. Then have your wife disconnect the shore power. You should here the fridge pilot clicking trying to lite the flame. No click no pilot.

Forgot if the fridge detects no pilot then it will shut off propane to unit. Pilot will be located in the lower access door outside.

And just how does a fridge uses less gas than a fridge? Like a Canadian breathes less air than a Canadian?

Are the buttons on the frig turned to AUTO? You might have a gas block. Does your stove and hot water heater work?

Fridge won't work on road

If the refrigerator is in you pop out, the propane hose to the refrigerator, under the slide is being pinched off when the slide is in. Know this as it happened to me and I find this is very common.

It would be nice if I could test for spark and fuel at the fridge before I take it to a shop (good luck finding anyone to help this time of year). It is a "down the road" issue. The fridge won't work while travelling nor will it work when stopped. Only works when plugged in.
When you figure it out, let us know what it was. Thx
