Get your multimeter out, and check and see if you have 12 volts where the wiring is connected to the stack heater (12 volt element attached to the coils), then if you do, set the meter to continuity and see if there is continuity in the 12 element. If no continuity, your stack heater (element) is burnt out/ blown. Very common..... Larry

First, are you sure it doesn't work? 12V mode is pretty weak to begin with, so you can't always judge by the inside temperature .

But 12V is often the first thing to go with those things. Many would say: 'good riddance' and suggest using an inverter on 120V mode which may actually be more efficient if your tow vehicle can handle the power draw. I'm thinking of trying it out myself even if my 12V isn't really dead yet.

How long is your journey Brandy? Our fridge in the old trailer had the 12V shot, but we found that chilling down the fridge on 120V for at least 1 day prior to journey, it would hold over until we got to most of our more immediate destinations (3-4 hours). As long as it was plugging in shortly after arrival, stuff stayed cold enough to keep. Sometimes we'd pack meat in frozen state in the fridge as extra insurance for a longer camping trip

Brandy,

Everything you'd ever want to know about the "12 Volt Side of Life". Maybe this will shed some light on your frig problem...
