Need Help fast - Refrigerator

Does anyone know if the refrig has a fuse or breaker anywhere? I looked in the main panel and nothing is labeled for frig. The auto light was on, but just went out there and the light was out along with the light inside. I know the trailer is getting power as the microwave clock is on. We were leaving today for the weekend, but will have to cancel if frig died.

Don't know anything about your LaCrosse 296BHS but I would think the fridge should work om Electric, gas and or Battery. Are you sure it's plugged in and on? Hope you get it working and are able to go for the weekend. Good luck

is anything working on the 12V side? from what I understand the controls work off 12V.
if yes on 12V power, there has to be a 12V fuse to the fridge, look at all of them- . also make sure the fridge didn't get turned off by accident.

Back again if you have low or no 12v try hooking a battery charger to the battery to maintain a charge.

12V side works fine. Looked at all the fuses and breakers, everything is OK, dealer said probably the board went out. Thanks for all the replies. Our weekend is canceled and taking it to the dealer tomorrow.

Could you rough-it and use an ice chest? Then drop it off on the dealer on the way home? Seems a shame to cancel over that. Just a thought...

If you have 12 volt, then you may be able to run your fridge on propane to save the weekend camping trip.

Different directions from dealer and campground. Also, dealer is 1 1/2 hours away each direction so have to take it in tomorrow morning when I have the time to do it.
