Dometic fridge question from Newbies

We are almost 3 days old in our RV life and have a million questions but if anyone could help us with just this one we would be grateful. Have a Dometic RM1350 fridge in our 06 country Coach Allure. It can run on LPG or 110 and chooses when set on auto. Tonight the display continues to flash the temp and "LP" despite us being hooked up to 50amp shore power and dosn't seem as cold. How do I ensure it is running from the shore power and not the LP.
Thanks in advance
Steve and Karen

You should be able to select AC by changing the mode from Auto. If it won't switch to AC there could be a fuse blown somewher that is keeping th 120v Ac from reaching the control board on the back of the refrigerator.

Hi Steve and Karen. I agree, manually change the setting to AC. Welcome to the RV lifestyle and the many challenges that come with it. LOL As you spend time on the site you will learn so much just by reading the mistakes of others. Enjoy and safe travels.

Welcome to the forum.

Great advice so far. Manually switch it to AC and see if it will run when manually selected.

To ensure the refrigerator isn't working on LP couldn't you simply shut the tanks off? Also, is there an outside access door to the back of the refrigerator where you can look in there and see if there is a flame or not?
