Thank you all so much. The flint knob was in that spot and is just rusted over so much it couldn't move. We took it out to soak it in WD40 and lit it using the inspection port. We couldn't hear the fridge working so assumed something else went wrong but it. Turns out its just the quietist fridge in the world and we are very happy! Thanks all!

I think you will have to get used to using the lighting port. The flint that Dometic used isn't a standard U.S. size and lighter flints don't work very well.

When these refrigrators make any noise it's bad news. A gurggling sound usually indicates that the cooling circuit is clogged and not far from failure.

Did you try the 120 volt operation yet?

Thank you so much everyone. We were able to light it that way no problem and did so several times on our trip. We also used the 110V and it was perfect. Stove and fridge both operating really really well, and we didn't run out of propane so I was happy

We had a lovely trip, and I have NO regrets about buying that trailer, it's made solo camping with the kids a breeze!

thanks again for all the help
