Dometic fridge problem

The fridge on my old trailer, 2007 8328SS works fine with electric. It doesn't seem to run at all on propane. How do I go about diagnosing the issue? The stove fires right up so I'm assuming the lines aren't blocked.

Are there some sensors I can check into?

Model?
The most common issue for newbies is air in the gas line. Purge the bas lines by lighting a stove top burner first.

Yeah. I'm not a newbie. Been camping for a few years. Stove lights right up as does the gas water heater. It has to be something else.

Those fridges need to be level to start up. ie: switch to gas before leaving your camp site or storage. I used to have the same problem it would take 12 to 16 hr to get cool. someone to level my trailer with a bubble level in the fridge. Once it started and I cold hear it running through I was good to go on the road. No further issues, Problem solved. Hope this helps

I kept trying to get it to fire. Even opened the line to make sure propane was flowing. Then I smacked the valve a hand full of times. Fired right up. Lol. Ran great all weekend on our trip to Indianapolis and back.
