I am going to try not to muddy the waters by giving too much unnecessary information but I might fail! Haha. The RV is a 2016 PrimeTime Sanibel 3601. For the third time since living in the RV (about 2 months) the fridge has seemingly shut off at random. The RV is connected to shore-power.
If there are multiple ways to power the fridge, I have not figured out how to switch it between battery, shore-power, propane, etc. I looked for panels and switches everywhere it was recommended online. The manual I requested from Forest River is pretty generic.
The first time it went off, the propane also ran out so I thought the fridge was running on Propane. I got it to come back on when I switched on the "remote switch" which I understand to be the inverter, correct? If so, does that mean at that time the power is running through the battery?
2nd time, there was a serious cold-snap, sub-zero temps. Fridge went out. Battery appeared dead. Bought new battery, nothing happened. Gave up, went to bed. Woke up and BAM working again.
3rd time, this moring. Got into the fridge once, fine. Second time, OFF. Absolutely maddening. No idea how to trouble shoot.
Does not seem to be a delay or loss in shore power, microwave stays on the right time and everything.
If it is sometimes running through propane or battery, is there a way to make it only run on the shore power?
Please tell me there is something very obvious and simple right under my nose and I have been overthinking the whole thing.
