Left for 4 mos trip last week. Had pre-cooled fridge with shore power and all was good. However, while driving the wife noticed the fridge was not powered by LP.
LP tank was 3/4 full and she had just made some lunch with the stove, so had her try the water heater. That worked fine.
After 5 hrs of driving, stopped for gas and while stopped I tried to get fridge lp light to come on. After pushing the on/off button on the fridge many, many times the LP light illuminated. However, after 10 minutes back on the road the wife noticed the light out again.
After another 5+ hrs of driving, stopped at Wally World for the night and the fridge ran fine on LP all night. Now, a week and another 600 miles later it is still working just fine.
My question - Anyone else had this experience and if so, any ideas why it took so long to start up and keep running on LP? Could it be a temp sensor going bad, a spiders nest in the wrong place, or some other common problem.
I just want to know possible causes in advance so we don't end up losing some frozen food when I could have done something on the road to fix the problem.
