2021 salem Cruise lite refrigerator

So I bought a new salem cruise lite 261 bhxl it was outfitted with the furron fridge. I recently was camping with the use of generator for my power source and I could power my ac just fine but my fridge was not working, so i was curious if the fridge/freezer ran on gas or just electric. If so is there a switch to manually to run it on gas? if so where is it located because i searched for it and there was no luck.

thank you,

You need to contact your dealer. Didn't they tell you that Furrion fridges are 12v only, during the PDI/walkthrough?
Or check your model's webpage and look at the list of features.
There are tons of Furrion 12v fridge threads and posts here, nearly all are negative.

take a deep breath. almost certainly the refrigerator is a 12 volt electric only model. and as stated above, there is a lot negative posts about these refrigerators. i would immediately get with the dealer and get the situation resolved. don't wait a day. get it resolved while you are still under warranty. if there is a problem they may want to replace the refrigerator but from some of the posts this is taking a long time to get replacements. if this is necessary try to get you warranty extended to compensate for the time you have an inoperable refrigerator.

i hope it doesn't come to this and there is an easy fix. but get on it now!
