Residential refrigerator

2016 sandpiper 5th wheel. After 9 mos on the learning curve i have questions about our residential refer. It seems like while on the inverter, I don't think it's on. No lights and ice is melting. Also, how do you keep the doors secured while on the road?

It should be running when the inverter is on. Can't help you there.

As for the doors, we use two zip ties each time we hit the road. That knob gadget they gave ain't worth a flip. Two zip ties around the handles when we leave and we just cut them when we arrive. Works like a charm.

What inverter do you have? I have a WFCO-5100. Check the output AC fuse. Here is a link to my models manual. If not the same just google your model number.. http://wfcoelectronics.com/wp-conten...00-Manual1.pdf

Does the light on the inverter switch (in the cabinet) come on? If not....

Look in the basement compartment front wall. There is a switch there that looks like a battery disconnect. It is the inverter power switch. Make sure it is on. If it is not on, then the inverter will not turn of regardless of the switch in the cabinet.

It could also be that the inverter is wired to the wrong circuit. Does the microwave have power when the inverter is on?

Thanks

Sorry for my slow response. I love the zip tie idea, it is hard to believe that they are needed. Without them, I've arrived at our destination to find most of our food spilled all over the coach! I am researching the inverter issues now.

Sorry. I forgot to address the doors. If you have the LG frdge with the bottom drawer freezer, then zip ties might not work.

I picked up some of the severe duty Velcro and placed a small square above each door on the body of the fridge and a small square on the top of each door. I use the other portion to connect the two. On the freezer drawer, same thing except I place a square on each side.

This stuff has quite a high shear strength so I have had no issues. It is also almost clear, so hard to see when you are setup. FYI. It is not the standard hook and loop stuff. Maybe two pieces mesh together by pressing them, and it holds!

Ill snap a picture later.

ours has a couple of little hardware loops in the molding on each side of the refrigerator that allow you to run bungee cords across the refrigerator doors and bottom freezer drawer. it works!
