Greg, what's the "cpr" on the battery and how do I determine that?

Ellen you need to get your battery up . I think 12 is 25% . Can you plug in to 120 ? Put your frig on gas . 12 volt really doesn't work well and you don't have battery power to run that way . But you do need the switch , it's a toggle switch on to run frig . On gas as had been said outside you can hear the burner if it is running on gas . Can someone charge your battery for you ? Pat

If you are really at 11 volts, then that is probably why the fridge doesn't work. You're batteries are dead. It'll take at least a full day to charge them, maybe more from the car.

Do they have sites with utilities there that you could switch to and plug in?

LOL, sorry. CPR means your battery is dead like others are concluding and you need to give it emergency resuscitation. Please don't do mouth to mouth as battery acid is rough on the lips.
You will need to get it charging somehow ASAP.

No 120 here. Would have to leave park. Not even at park now.
I've never been more than approx. 12.4 since I picked up the Escape.
??
So confused.

I've been off grid since I picked up at ETI on the 15th. But was always showing the approx 12.4.
We're talking about the solar panel reading on the inside of the trailer, to the left of the reading for fresh, grey and black tanks, right?
Yes, the solar panel monitor. On my 5.0TA it is on the side of the dinette bench seat near the floor. I wonder if there is enough distilled water in the batteries. Something to check. If it was never above 12.4 (these are essentially brand new batteries), and your refrigerator is not working, it might be wise to call Reace before ETI closes today and discuss these issues with him.

Ellen someday you are going to laugh about this . You are going to be ok . Can you get a ice chest for your cold food ? Flashlights to see by . Can you remove your batteries and take them maybe a auto parts store and let them charge at least a day or go this hurts buy 2 batteries and replace . You have a trailer and gas to warm food and keep warm . Forget the electrical until you can get them charged. You can get some bottle water to drink , flush with and clean up until Sunday . You are really camping now . You will be ok . Pat
