Refrigerator won’t stay on

We have a 2015 Rockwood Roo 23SS. When we got home from our last trip and emptying the fridge, noticed the lights were blinking. It has done that before and we just turn it off and back on again (plugged into the house). This time it just blinks a few times and shuts off. Where do we start troubleshooting?

Have you looked at the fridge's manual troubleshooting guide?
Was it set on Auto or Propane?
Probably help if you posted which Dometic model number.

Model helps, for sure. As it is, see if it works on propane. If it does then I would start troubleshooting the heating element. Where it plugs into the control board in the back had come loose on mine causing it not to work on 120v

If the Rv is not level the refrigerator will not work properly in my rig.

start by checking all the electrical connections on the board and any other connections behind the fridge . many times it's just a loose connection heading up to the eyebrow board .

It will help to know the make and model of the fridge.

Were all the lights inside and outside of the fridge blinking or was it just the eyebrow panel?

The reason I ask is that some fridges blink the lights a certain number of times to indicate an error code.

There is a fuse on the outside of the camper, i believe it is 15amp, the glass type. My fridge was doing the same thing and I found the fuse blown, replaced it and it works fine now.
