Fridge stopped working.. Any Thoughts?

Have a new 2017 21" Escape
Fridge has worked fine on two previous outings
After turning on to gas, fridge was working perfectly for about 24 hours.
Drove to camp site about 2 hours away and when I arrived the fridge had stopped.
FYI I had left the gas on while driving. No lights on the fridge control panel... looked for loose connections but could not see any visible problems.
I am thinking the circuit board may be faulty?
Any thoughts before I contact Escape?
Thanks

Make sure that your battery disconnect toggle switch has not been inadvertently turned on (i.e., no power from the battery). With no lights even to the refer panel, that would be the first placed I'd check as the refer does need power to operate even with propane. If you have other lights that work, this is not the problem.

See attached photo. If this works, be sure to let ETI know as they are working with Dometic on this.

I wonder how many of us have had Dometic refrigerator problems? For us it works only intermittently on propane and once didn't work on battery. Level sites, turned it off then back on after a couple of hours, blew out "possible cobwebs", all other propane devices work fine, etc. Checked by a factory-authorized repair facility and nothing found. "Working fine", but three days later we had to use an ice-chest for our food. The botttom door hinge broke and it looks to be an incredibly "weak" part. We fixed it with a screw, washer and bolt that is much more durable. This Dometic refrigerator is the most problematic aspect of our two-year old 17B.
