No model # on fridge. Found a ground fault that had popped will see if that works, then I'll try propane. Thanks

Actually, the controls should be in the same section (or the section above) where you accessed the chimney (behind the fridge, accessed from the outside). Somewhere in there should be a switch for AC and one for DC. The more recent fridge models also have a rotary control to set for the amount of cooling on AC, similar to the one near the bottom for propane.

But the newer, bigger, heavier PUPs (especially high walls) tend to have fridges more like travel trailers - so the model is important. Find the model number and do an internet search - the operator's manual should have instructions as to what all the controls look like and how they work. Again, most PUPs have all the controls behind the fridge, and accessed by removing or opening an outside access panel(s).

IF the red button snaps, you have an electrical problem with the button assembly itself. It is a thermal protection device and very well could be defective.

That's not unusual. I have to start my fridge the day before we leave to get it to temperature and stable.
