Well, we found out what the fridge problem was and it was an easy fix. The battery was not charged enough. We hooked it up to the truck, turned the fridge on and it came on right away. Thanks to everyone for your help!
One other question just for future reference. Is the battery needed just to light the fridge the first time when using propane or if the fridge is running on propane, does the battery have to be fully charged to keep it running?

Minimum 12 volts or about 60% discharged.

When the "GOOD" light goes out; you need to be recharging the battery.

If you expect the fridge temp to be maintained, then yes, the battery is necessary.
