OK Next Question ... No lights when on battery

Well, but a slightly used RV and always a lot of questions. Vibe6504. I noticed something odd today. I was fixing a leak (done) and realized that when on battery power, I do have power - I can work the slide and see the fridge power light, but I cannot get any lights to turn on! When plugged in, no issue. Can't be a fuse??? Any thoughts?

Also, is it possible to run the fridge off 12V while driving? To get it cooled?

if you're asking if you can run it off of 12vDC power alone, then NO.
yours is a 2-way fridge, not a 3-way fridge.

it'll run on propane, while traveling and uses the 12v DC power to run the electronics but not the cooling process.
otherwise, you can only run it off of 110vAC shore power or a generator.

The Vibes have a wall switch and the lights themselves have a switch could it be you do not have all the switches in the on position. Just thought I would ask you may already know that. If it is not a fuse I am not sure what else it could be perhaps a loose wire.

Check for a mini circuit breaker coming off the battery. Follow the red wire into a block of circuit breakers where it splits off to many circuits. The breakers have a small button on it's side which pops out when trips. Look for the button and push it in. This should take care you problem, but not sure how quick you can find it.
