Fridge just stopped working 2015 23ikss

All,

Interesting thing happened today. I brought my roo home (from storage) in prep for a camping trip. When I went to start the fridge...nada..no lights, no cooling..nothing. Tried it with both gas and electric.

First thought was that I had a blown fuse. Checked the panel and the fuse was fine (was a 15 fuse). I then noticed that the fuse was labeled fridge and furnace. So I decided to start the furnace...nada..nothing..won't come on (the AC works just fine). I decided to plug the fridge light bulb in..and no light either (I took the light out a few weeks ago).

Also, the Roo was not plugged in during storage...had the battery disconnected. Have plenty of propane, battery and clean electricity at my house.


Any thoughts or ideas what I should check? I purchased from RVW (and live in Texas) so calling the dealer is a long shot for success.

Look forward to any advice you can give!

Thanks,

Kelly

do you have anything working that is on 12 volts dc. If not check inverter also battery connections most inverts will not work unless their is a good battery connected , loose connections can make it appear that you have a problem bigger when it is just a loose wire. also check polarity + -.
If wire not color coded properly the wite wire is probably +. Depends on wether an Electrican or Electronics guy wired it!!

Ok I would check on the back side if frig and see if their is anything obvious there still sounds like power problem. Maybe some small critter got in there during storage. If you have a volt meter you can check for power 12dc and 120 volt ac on the back side of frig.

I thought that model had a factory battery disconnect somewhere.

The fridge works on 120 or propane. I would check the AC power. Are you plugged into shore power.

So the only things not working are on the same DC circuit. I would double check the fuse, take the fuse out and reseat it if you have not done this already, or try a new fuse. I have had fuses look ok but still be open. I would also check to make sure the wire has not come loose at the converter circuit board.

Happy, guess I should know this...but..where is the converter circuit board? I did everything else this morning in your instructions above.

Lol../stupid question. I found it and checked all the wires. Quit a few were not tightened properly and I tightened accordingly. However, the one for the fridge / furnace was good and tight.

I am not sure what else to explore. Clearly, I am not getting power to the circuit that is for the furnace and fridge. I even switched all the fuses...no luck.
