Remove outer cover and turn fridge on.
Coils will get hot or should.
Does fridge light come on?

Yes light does come on and also I can hear it trying to come on. I might add this past weekend when in electric mode I could here a nose coming from the bottom of the unit.

most older rv ref. I have worked on require 12 volts DC to run the control board regardless of gas or 120 AC volt operation.Check whether 1. you had the battery disconnected thru the disconnect switch or you have a blown 12 volt fuse. As new as your unit is it may be different in some way but it has to have current to fire the propane.

After talking with the op last we discovered that his thermistor had fallen out of the slider.
Hopefully that fixed the problem.

Make sure the burner is lit. Mine takes 3 tries before it will stay lit because of air in line. Light a burner on the stove. It helps purge air from line.

Right after we took delivery of our rig, the first time out, our fridge did not work either. First time jitters? Were we doing something wrong?

Long story short........after sitting at dealership waiting for warranty repairs (fridge among others) the fridge worked without them doing anything. Turns out, it was because our driveway was on too much of a slope, and the fridge became adapted to a NEW level. Turns out the slope of our driveway was too much............in review, certainly we would NOT have camped at that slope.

Can't tell for sure from your picture in your driveway, but would you actually camp in your RV at the slope of the driveway?

Try making sure you're really level and turn on the stove to get the propane flowing properly towards the fridge. It may take some time (days)after being really level to prove the solution.

Good Luck.
