If your refer runs on gas or electric then it is running on 12v from your battery not AC. A low battery can cause your problems. That would be the house battery not the vehicle battery.

First: Check that the converter has power and you have 12Volts on the house batteries.

Second: Check that you have 120 Vac on the refer outlet. If not>Run an extension cord from an operating plug to the refer plug.

If it doesn't work you most likely have a control board failure.

You need 12V on the control board to operate the relays for the 120VAC heater and (if you choose Propane) for the gas controller.

Most control boards have a fuse on them so check for that if you have ac and dc power.

Good luck

"Second: Check that you have 120 Vac on the refer outlet. If not>Run an extension cord from an operating plug to the refer plug."

We had to do this last summer, found a loose (not unhooked just not making a good connection) wire in the dinette outlet.
FYI: the ref 110 outlet is located on the outside behind the refrigerator.

X2 to scubanuts's comment. Downline plugs can and usually are protected by a GFCI receptacle and are thusly identified by a small sticker. (If installed by a conscientious licensed electrician)As others have stated GFCI's can be found ANYWHERE. Good luck.

Thanks guys for all your responses. We already lost all the food and heading back tomorrow. When I get back I'm going to run a full diagnostic. Wife didn't want this to ruin this trip so we roughed it.
