911 fridge help!

We are camping with a group of friends and their fridge has no power. It's a 99 hornet 27h. We looked at the fuse and breakers, purge the propane line and even tried with a generator. Everything except the fridge has power. Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to where to look to get power to the fridge in this unit???????????

Problem was found. The battery was connected backward. All systems check out OK now. Sorry to make a scene, but I know that the experience on this forum will provide any and all answers.

Battery connected backwards should have blown the 'reverse polarity' fuses on converter BUT with generator power the converter would still provide DC power to trailer.

Fridge needs DC to operate.....converter would have supplied that

Not sure I understand WHAT you found/fixed

We looked at the fridge fuse but didn't look at the converter fuse which was blown. We went to replace the fuse and got one heck of a show. We unhooked the negative battery terminal and replaced the fuse. As soon as I touched the batt cable to the terminal the light show resumed inside and out. Next fuse. Before trying the next fuse we traced the battery cables, yes I know should have done this first. Well I never knew RVs have reverse colors, black for positive and white for ground. Screwed up the rv owner too.
