The fridge works using 12 volts when running on propane.

Do you have a meter to measure your battery output?

How do you know? Do you get a check LED? The pilot light is the the light. There is nothing more than a pilot light to heat the element. Maybe it is at temp and does not need to be on because the fridge is at temp.

What do you do to make it light that takes several attempts. Who is watching the pilot light during this time?

The check light on the refregiator comes on to let you know that it's not on. Turn it off and back on and you can hear the pilot trying to lite. Do these several times and it will finally light.

That makes sense. You do this before you run the generator?

Your propane regulator may be freezing up.

Have you tried to light any other propane appliances when you are experiencing the problem with your refrigerator? Such as... will the stove light?

Just trying to determine if it is a control problem or a propane supply problem.

To make sure it is not regulator freezing, you would have to try stove as soon as refrigerator acts up (shuts down) as regulator will defrost once propane stops flowing and will resume normal function.....
