Thanks. I will try again. And, yes, he had that at the top of those fins. I hope the fridge will respond with the LP gas eventually. But it surely looks like there is absolutely no function on AC power. The unit is just completely silent and lifeless on AC power. I checked all the fuses, tested the AC outlet inside the compartment. The light inside the fridge functions well (if that matters).

You won't hear a thing when on a/c power.
It's not a normal residential fridge with a compressor.
When using shore power it an electrical heating element.

I watched both videos and checked everything out. I gave it another try with the AC power for over 24 hours. The Freezer just barely got cool enough to make a small amount of condensation on the back wall. Temp was in the high 50's. The fridge was room temp or hotter. Nothing.

I don't know of anything else to do. I guess I'm heading for a new cooling unit unless somebody has a miracle cure. The previous owner left it plugged up for several months with no refrigerator function.

It is quite possible the absorption unit is bad .
I believe "and I'll look" there's a replacement absorption unit without replacement of the whole unit.

I had a similar problem, profoundly inadequate cooling, on either AC or gas. Removed the top grate on the outside to allow more heat dissipation and it works fine.

Recently added a pair of fans on thermostats, but found with the grate in place that it still doesn't get adequate air flow over the condenser. The grate has to come off for the reefer to work well. When the condenser has enough air flow to dump the heat outside, the counter top above the reefer does not get hot.

Trailer is a 2014 WW 195BH Anyone else have this problem?
