2018 Salem Rei

Refrigerator only works on shore power. This unit doesn't use propane or 12v. It has a inverter. Bought new in April. Any ideas?

Ideas for what? What is your question? Boondocking, during on a trip, doesn't get/stay cold, how many batterys do I need? See what I mean.

On this FR Salem the refrigerator is supposed to work on the inverter going down the road. Mine has no power after the shore power is removed. FR said in an email to contact dealer!

Is your inverter on? Is the circuit breaker or fuse for the inverter good/on. Did you use a multi meter to check voltage in to the inverter. Is the master battery disconnect on? There is a circuit breaker up near to tongue of the trailer, is that tripped. That's what I'm getting at. There is a lot to check first.

I Figured it out! There was 120v leaving the inverter. They wired the microwave up instead of the refrigerator!

Glad you found it. Must have been built on a Monday or Friday!
