NoBo 19.3 refrigerator question

I'm currently setting up trailer to leave tomorrow turned the power on and turned on propane. Turned the refrigerator on and sounds like it lit and fired up...my question is ...if I'm not connected to power will it run off of battery or propane?

If it's a 2-way fridge, the propane side uses both propane AND 12v battery power. The 12v ignites the propane and the propane cools the fridge. It won't cool on 12v only unless it's a 3-way fridge.

Depends on which button setting you put it on.
You need to read your fridge's owners manual.
Or post make and model number of fridge.
Didn't they go over this with you during the PDI/walk-through?

If you're plugged into shore power and it's on Auto, it should default to electric. But without knowing make and model number of the fridge, we're just guessing. The fridge manual should explain this.
