That is funny! It's not exactly rocket science!
That 18 cu ft of cold storage is wonderful! I don't know what I'll think about it when I have to buy 4 new batteries!

If your fridge was getting warm after a 5 hour trip and you were plugged into your TV you have a problem. My first guess is that your inverter is turned off...

need more data. are the batts discharged, or just the fridge warm? need a good multimeter to check voltages at battery. if the batts are ok, check again with engine running. then check the invert outlet. report back here.

I have seen the E05 and OL error on mine, while it was plugged in. I think what was going on was that the auto defrost cycle was happening on the fridge and it sensed it as an overload, even though it should be no more than 500 watts during defrost, and maybe 150 during regular compressor use. It has always worked though. Give the fridge some time to get through the defrost cycle, and if the error is still there, turn off the DC (battery disconnect switch) and AC (unplug your trailer from the AC power source) to perform a restart on the inverter, then try it again.

What brand and model# residential refer are y'all getting. Seems I read somewhere that the 18CF residential is the same physical size as the Dometic 1350RM which is only 13CF. I know the regular propane refers are not the most efficient. When I bought my '12 CC, it was a dealer ordered unit which had not been delivered yet. I tried to get residential refer installed but my unit had already left the plant. Bummer!! Steve A. Dagro

Wire1946,
You can use your level-up panel to check your battery status. It has a built in meter.

Your battery wiring diagram is on the bulkhead behind the batteries as well.

If you want to be real thorough you might want to check the terminal lugs your dealer installed to make sure they are crimped tight.

Hope this helps.
