1999 Newmar Dutch Star Ford F53 Electrical Problem

Started out with the emergency brake light staying on. Quick fix to a loose wire. Next day the electrical mirrors won't work and the rear view monitor won't work. Is there an inline fuse anywhere in that area?

Then, the next day the refrigerator stopped working. It has power up to it, but stops there. Maybe a solenoid?

Seems too coincidental that all these things happened at the same time.

Any suggestions?

The one common fault in electrical system failures or intermittent usage is your grounding wires for the each of the coach's systems. I would be looking at all green and pure copper wires to see if they are clean and not loose or broken.
