Inverter for refrigerator

Have a 5th wheel trailer. Residential refrigerator. Works good on power cord,but when unplugged the inverter never comes on. Checked all breakers and fuses. Also removed cover from rear panel and all wiring plugged in. Any ideas?

Open fuse to the inverter?
Dead Fridge Battery?
Open fuse from converter to Fridge Battery?

Have hydraulic leveling system on camper. It runs on the same batteries. Works fine even when not hooked to land line. Think batteries should be ok.

Might want to look at my post about a week ago regarding inverter and refrigerator. After working with factory the wiring diagram in the battery compartment for four 6 volt batteries is in correct. Bottom line the diagram ends up with two 12 volt batteries instead of increasing load by using all four 6 volts. Also the battery may not get charged from the converter in the diagram originally place in the battery compartment. I have a 2015 38RD and drove me crazy until I finally got this right from the factory. Inverter would not stay up since the batteries drained quickly due to two 6 volts instead of four 6 volts adding capacity. Let me know if you can find the post and I will repost the new diagram.

Batteries

Noticed from a different thread that you commented on that you a have a 2015 Cedar Creek 5th wheel w/ residential refrigerator. This unit requires 4 6v golf cart batteries, not 2 12V. Make sure the battery cables are connected in the proper order.

Dealer installed 2 12v batteries. Told me it's the same thing. No battery hold downs either.

There are other threads on this sites telling of similar problems with dealers not installing the 4 6v golf cart batteries. Inside of you battery compartment is a label that reads 4 6v golf cart batteries are required. Suggest you contact Cedar Creek to verify this. They will now exactly what you are talking about because they have got many calls on this same issue. Then do as others have done and went back and raised heck with that dealer. Dealers do that to make more money on the deal. One or two 12v batteries are cheaper that 4 6v.
