Hi Dan,

I use the "Kill-a-Watt" meter. I have used it to measure very low loads (in the single digits) and it works great. Just to be sure, I left the refrigerator on overnight and still no cooling. I checked further and found a broken wire and jumpered it, but the refrigerator still would not work. I am tied up at the moment with work and trying to get the Scamp ready for a trip in May. Since the previous owner gave me a 90-day warranty on the unit and agreed to pay for repairs, I made an appointment at a local RV dealer to have it and a couple of other minor things fixed.

I appreciate everyone's input on trying to help me solve this problem.

I too had a fridge working Great on Propane but not at all on Elec. I brought it to an area RV dealer and they just called me. They replaced the Element in the fridge and it's ready for pick up. The part in CDN is $95.00 and yet to find out the labour. Either way I beleive it to be worth it in the long run.
