Refrigerator

Ok just got our new Furrion fridge installed. Seems to be working fine but the light only works when the shore power or generator is on. Is this correct? Shouldn't the fridge and the light work off of 12vdc?

Not if it is a Furrion AC only refrigerator. Then it would need an inverter to run off 12v DC.

However, if it is a DC refrigerator, is your battery disconnect switch turned on?

The dc is on and there’s an inverter. But it doesn’t seem to be working. Everything on this camper is a total mystery.

Perhaps if you posted the fridge model number, we could identify what type of fridge it is.

It's a mystery to us as well.

Forest River uses at least 12-15 different makes/models of refrigerators, maybe more. Not every R/V is equipped the same. Not even all Vengeance models are the same.

Some are 120v AC residential models, some are 12v only, some are a combination of 12v and LP gas.

Unless you give us additional information to work with, it will remain a mystery.

ok it's a FCR14ACBQA-SS-01. It's a 120 vac fridge with a 12 vdc inverter. The inverter doesn't seem to be working. I climbed in the compartment and pushed the on/off button but nothing happened. There are no lights on the inverter at all. When I turn the shore power back on the green LED light on the inverter comes on. still nothing on the screen.

Are your batteries charged? We have the same type fridge. We found that if the battery is week we can’t turn on the fridge at the inverter switch. I plugged a battery charger in and after about 30 min the fridge would come on. Just a thought.

Another thing to look at is if your battery disconnect switch is off. It sounds like your inverter is not hooked to the batteries, when on shore power the inverter doesn't need to run but will have power to the button but when you remove shore power it has no power anywhere which makes me think your battery disconnect switch is turned off.
