will not kick on either, but I assume I need the electrical to start the propane system as well. Any advice on these problems are much appreciated.
Pull the fuse and replace it just in case it is bad even if it looks good. There should be a dedicated fuse for it most likely. Unplug the plug in the back and re-plug it back in just to make sure it is tight and there's no dirt or corrosion in the receptacle. Run a drop cord to the plug in and see if it lights
up the fridge
. Do you have the correct buttons pushed? If you don't have 110 or 12V to the fridge
then there could be a real big problem but it sounds like a fuse. The only power needed to start the propane is 12V. Make sure the wire behind the fuse is not pulled out in the fuse panel. They are about where the shore power cord goes and it is possible to pull a wire out with it. We have a 2007 Casita and we had a similar problem with the hot water tank. It had pulled the plug apart above the hot water tank when pulling the shore power out. Check to be sure no mice chewed on a wire. Good luck.
