Sorry to respond so late but, was your TT "off level" when you were getting it ready to go for the weekend? The fridge, when on, can only sustain a tilt of less than about 6 degrees. If it is left running in the "off level" position too long the ammonia coolant in the coils not flow properly and will clog. This will then trip a thermal switch cutting off ALL POWER to the fridge. The switch is behind the metal heat shield in the rear of the fridge and rivited to the flu pipe for the propane flame. the switch is "resettable" but should be replaced.

I know this from personal experience and took it to the dealer on our way back from a trip. I watched as the technician located the thermal switch, tested it and found that it was "tripped" and replaced it. He also showed me how to reset it by pushing the button on it but, said that it should be replaced A.S.A.P. if it should ever trip again.

Hope this helps and good luck

It is most likely that glass fuse onetonford mentioned in his post. The circuit board had a loose/corroded/bad ground connection causing mine to pop the 110 fuse on the fridge circuit board. Dealer corrected the ground issue and it's been all good ever since.
Your propane side should work just fine to power that fridge! Many folks including me swear that it gets colder on propane anyway. Just switch it to auto/on, and press the gas button- being sure that the gas is on. Your trip should be just fine, and you'll never notice that there was any fridge problem!

Ended up being a loose connection behind somewhere which killed all power to frig (12v and 110), so even gas would not work. Tech replaced/repaired connection and all seems good now. We will try to go out again in a couple of weeks. Thanks for all the responses.
