1993 lil Bigfoot

hello i am new to the fiberglas rv world. i recently purchased a 13.5 lil bigfoot trailer and can't get the propane fridge working. it works on electric but not on propane. i took it apart and cleaned the burner barrel and anything that looked like it needed cleaning in there no cold. i purchased another fridge (used) and installed it only to have the same problem. what am i doing wrong. there is no battery in the trailer, does it need one for the propane fridge to work? fridge is a dometic RM2201. any help would be appreciated thanks. randy

Nice to meet another lil bigfoot owner! These are far and few in between.

Here's my startup process. I have to press and hold the red gas supply button for a minute or so, hit the striker about 5 times, and keep holding the red button for another minute or so after it has lit.

That's usually enough to get it to going, but not always. In those instances, i light it with a BBQ lighter... following the same process for the red supply button.

Here's a YouTube video of the fridge startup. He's doing it on a lil bigfoot.


Good luck!
