RMD8555 - no power?

Looking to take my new trailer out and the refrigerator has no power/won't turn on. Main power is on, everything else works. Fuse is good (and the light turns on if I remove it). A multimeter on the power block for the refrigerator shows 13v give or take.

The manual talks to an on-board fuse without any explanation to where it is.


Suggestions?

The refrigerator requires 12v to run on propane. Even the control panel is dead.

Still....if everything else works, as you said in your original post, why not try and see if it will light up with propane.

On the RML8555 there is a 3amp external fuse on the back - goes between 12V in and circuit board power. It is an obvious fuse holder readily visible from the back/side hatch opening.

It is the black thing on the right red wire in the bottom picture

the reason I suggested trying to start the fridge with propane is because my fridge did the same thing. It wouldn't start on AC. I checked the fuse at the fuse board and it appeared to not be blown. I fired it up with propane and it started. I'm now aware of an external fuse like jamman pointed out. Thanks jamman. I'll check the exterior fuse and try AC power to fridge again.

Thanks, mine looked like this once I jiggled the cables a bit. Easy fix once you know what to look for.

Fridge now works.
