Residential Fridge not working while driving

2016 Bounder 33c with Samsung residential fridge does not work while driving. The plug for it is behind a decorative panel next to the fridge and has 4 wooden plugs that need to be removed to get to the screws. Does anyone know if that outlet is connected to the inverter hence can run while driving? Or was that fridge simply not meant to work while driving. I wouldn't be surprised if this issue was discussed in previous threads, but I just couldn't find them.

A call to FW 800-322-8216 will get you your wiring diagram which should answer your question. Others may have different setups.

That outlet is supposed to be connected to the inverter. Hate to ask a stupid question, but, are you sure the inverter disconnect switch and circuit breaker in the main panel were in the on position.

On my 35K whenever on the road I look at the main TV and check that the red light on the front of it is illuminated. If that light is not on (LG TV) it means the inverter in not running. That's how I double check that the inverter is operating and supplying power to the refrigerator. To turn the inverter on there is a button on the inverter control panel above the entry door and as mentioned by others some in other places.

Silly me

You guys are perfectly correct and I feel embarrassed to say it, but the Inverter for some reason kicked off at some point and was not working without my knowing it. I pressed the top button on the inverter and sure enough, all is working well. Thanks for the info and the tip regarding the light on the TV.
