Fridge won't work on road

Works great when plugged in. Won't work on the road or on dc. Have lights on in fridge all the time. Have cabin lights work on dc on the road and when not plugged in. Figure it's a gas problem. Anyone had this? Have any fixes?

The way it is Posted makes Members think its a (Down the Road) Issue? Your unit has a (Propane or DC) issue! There were Some (Blowing Out) going down the road issues that were (Fac.Recall) to install a Baffle but this is Not your Issue. Youroo!!

Start simple, is the buttons above the fridge turned to on and auto? Check to make sure all propane knobs are turned appropriately and show green. Next, Check to see if the pilot is igniting. Turn it off, wait a couple of minutes and have someone turn the fridge on while you stand by the pilot listening for the clicks and see if it ignites. Is it possible there is air in the line that needs to be purged? Check to see if there are any valves to cut flow off to fridge (my Sabre has this). Do you have propane to your stove?

Refer requires 12VDC no matter what. After that you need either 120VAC or propane to cool.

I think he has 12V because he said fridge lights will work but not cooling on Gas.

I have DC. It must be a lighting issue (DC issue local to the fridge) or a lack of propane to the fridge. My stove and water heater work fine. Fuses are fine in the fridge. Is there a process to bleed just the propane line to the fridge? 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.

Since you are steadfast that it is a (Down the Road problem) and ONLY works when plugged in your choices are (1) Run your Generator or (2) Buy a REAL LONG power cable! Like I posted before (Propane or DC Issue) which also means the (Control Board)! Youroo!!
