LP refridg malfunction

2014 Rockwood 1950 purchased new in June. We took it out for a second trip this past weekend and used the refridgerator for the first time.

Ran it off 12v while driving to the campground, and it was nice and chilly on the inside when we arrived. Switched over to LP and it stopped working.

To be sure, I went and:

1) Checked to make sure I had turned off the 12v
2) Double checked to ensure the LP was lit and nob turned to high. Gas was on and pilot lit.

Still, the refridge no longer chillled while on LP. We switched back to 12v while connected to shore power and it again chilled down perfectly.

Switched back to LP and same thing happened again.

Any thoughts?

Air in the gas line? It may take a couple of starts to get it running the first time. Different appliance, but the first time I used the furnace, it took at least four attempts to get it running.
