The fridge requires 12 volts to the control board even to operate on 120 volts. If you have no 12 volts then the fridge won't work.

Have you checked all the fuses in the converter/power panel?
Have you checked the Short-Stop circuit breaker near the battery?

It would help if you told us what unit you have and what converter you have.

Finally checked inside panel, 2 40a and 2 25a where busted.
Now wondering why this happen. Put in new one's and everything works great for now else the battery is down and recharging now.

No work on it was done. It was hook to power line 110V for about 4 days in my driveway than when I went inside I find out there was no more 12v. Was no storm here, no lightning. So I really dont know why this happened while being park in driveway and nothing on power else the refrigerator.

Pierre, this can happen when you plug the cable in with the breaker on on the pedestal (in your scenario your home), it is not very common but ....

It would have happen 2 days after I plug to home ??...makes no sense...I was told at store where I got the 40a fuse that it was a record week of selling 40a at their store...so I imagine it could have been the weather flash lightning or else in our area... Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada

You're right, that doesn't make sense.
