If you have a dual outlet where the fridge plugs in measure the voltage on the other outlet just to see...

Also look for and measure connectiins for 12 volts and maybe the power to the heater if you can see a connector that would allow you to measure it.

Make notes of everything you do and discover as dealer may like them if ir goes stupid.

I did the Amish built replacement in mine and that thing gets cold fast and works great on propane.
Wasn't that hard to do either. I covered the couch and did it all in the MH.
I would highly recommend this upgrade over a replacement fridg.

Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything.

A tech from the dealer came to the house. He checked everything. There was power to the frig, the heating elements and gas burners all worked. The heating elements got up to 500 degrees. The heat was not getting to the cooling coils. They are contacting Dometic to understand what he found and why it worked at the dealer and not at my house.

The dealer has determined that the cooling unit they got from
Dometic, the manufacture of the frig, is defective. The dealer was able to get
the frig to malfunction by changing slightly the angle of the motorhome. The
frig would not work if the front of the motorhome was lower then the rear. The
frig would work if the front was higher then the rear. The frig isn't suppose to
be that sensitive to angle. The newer frig from Dometic are not sensitive to
angle. I was told in the past that I could even operate the frig in my 5 degree
slope driveway. Now I am waiting to see how fast the dealer can get a new
cooling unit from Dometic. Seems to me Dometic should have tested the cooling unit before sending it.

I try to always have ours level or as close to level as possible. Mine (82 model) hasn't never worked on electric but it will hold it a 30-33 degrees using propane no matter how hot or cold it is outside. It will use most of my propane with in 2 - 2 1/2 months. I don't think that is so bad around 40 bucks for 2-1/2 months. I wish it worked both ways but I am happy to have it work flawlessly on propane. I don't have the space to install a residential unit. I don't recall your vintage MH but does it just work one way or the other? Then just use it that way, will a residential unit fit in your MH?

Mine is a 2010. It did not work on either electric or propane.
