Since the refrigerator works via a direct connection and none of the outlets work you have no shorepower. Breaker controlling the outlet in the house you're feeding the trailer with is first suspect, suspect #2 is the main breaker in the trailer. Followed by the power cord itself.

I don't recall my refrigerator ever beeping but the propane detector coincidentally mounted near the floor very near the refrigerator will beep when it detects propane or if the trailer battery is low. With no shorepower the batteries aren't being charged and they could be low as well.

Connectors are the weak point in any electrical connections.

Like others have said, check the shore power, ensure proper ground

So what I found out about Dometic refrigerators was when I broke the ground, the refrigerator would turn on but would not get cold.

We were at a trip and took off with the trailer still attached to shore power, like many, I leave it hooked up litterally until we pull out because you know people will be going in and out of the trailer all the way until the last minute.

I took off, breaking off the ground prong. After that, the Dometic refrigerator would not get cold. It would come on, but it didn't show a fault either, just stopped working.

I would use a 3 prong ground fault tester. I keep one of these in the RV now. Keep in mind, so much electrical safety is built into these RV's to stop onboard fires, this also makes is very sensitive to wire problems.
