Fridge Turning off

Hi, My Dometic fridge in my 2021 Wildcat keeps turning off. My camper is level and I am plugged into the 50 amp box here at my rv park. It keeps tripping sort of speak, and the little light that indicates the cold level and power level is plinking. I can turn off the fridge and restart it to get it to turn on again, but it "trips" again after about a day or so. Any ideas?

It's always more helpful if you posted the fridge model number.

welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Has your microwave clock lost time? I know seems like a strange question but this would confirm you have either had steady power and a quick loss of power.

That's a 12v DC compressor type refrigerator.

How is your 12v system?

It seems fine. I have power to everything else and yet ut seems like it's get too hot or something. I can't get ahold of anyone from the dealership I got it from or forest river themselves.

Have you contacted Dometic?
That's who I would have contacted first.

Yeah I was going to do that next, but I was trying to get the dealership to fix it sense it is under warranty.

But your fridge has its own separate warranty and you can use an independent RV shop or mobile RV tech, instead of a dealer.

On my sons 5th wheel he found that he could pop off the piece where the temp and on off is lit up on outside of fridge and theres a hidden fuse back there.. He replaced and problems quit... Not sure if yours is that way or not.
