Default No Fridge on 110v

Our 2002 19L has a Dometic RM2353 3 way fridge. We know it runs on propane just fine. Will not run on 110v. I have reset the circuit breakers inside to no avail. BTW none of the six breakers is labeled as fridge supply. I removed the outside cover and tested the outlet that the fridge is plugged into......no juice !! Yea !... at least I have a starting place for no 110 fridge! Anyone have any idea which breaker might supply the fridge? I am going to remove the outlet itself to make sure there is not a loose or broken wire/s. All help appreciated !!

Mark, the wiring digram for the 2006 model year shows a 20 Amp circuit breaker for the fridge. I'm sure it's on the converter box.

If your breakers are all good, then I think you are on the right track in checking the wiring.

Does it work on DC (battery) power? There's a 30 Amp inline fuse on that circuit.

Default Updates

Our breakers are labeled like your's Jim except #4 says "open". Here is an update. I removed the outlet and opened it up. There is 110 on the supply side...good news ! I believe this indicates the outlet is bad. As the picture indicates I have plugged the fridge directly into the 110 coming from our house and turned it on. We will see in a few hours if it is cooling. Interestingly enough with this outlet out of the circuit there is no 110 to any other parts of the coach. So perhaps this indicates the outlet was good enough to complete a circuit for 110 supply to the trailer. Still do not understand why there was no 100 showing on my tester prior to taking it apart. Time will tell.

Default Fridge Update

I trouble shot the 110 plug in the back of the fridge compartment. I used three different testers and none showed the outlet the fridge plugged into having power. Soooo...I removed it. The romex feeding the outlet had juice on the leg coming into the receptacle. Based on my testers showing no power to the outlet I figured .....bad outlet. So (here I may have made a BIG mistake) I took apart the outlet. The outlet pictured is a new one that came in the trailer. I have spent two hours attempting to get the wiring back into this receptacle to no avail !! Has anyone had any luck re-wiring one of these (pictured below) ? In the interim I have wired in a standard household GFI outlet. With no outlet in this circuit there was no 110 supply to the trailer. Arrggg...still no fridge on 110, however it runs just fine on propane. Please shower me with great ideas on re-assembling the outlet and why no fridge on 110.

Mark, that outlet is like nothing I've ever seen. What does the plug from the refrigerator look like? Would an ordinary 20 Amp, 110V outlet work?

I think if you take your outlets apart you will find the same thing. The absolute cheapest.

Guys...I thought these were RV specific. They certainly keep the wires from vibrating loose. They are all that are installed in the trailer ! I do currently have a 110 GFI installed w/o a box. I will have to find a slim line receptacle and box to fit the area as it is VERY tight !

Of course, you can use a standard household outlet. I've HAD to use them in a couple situations. Once even used a shallow box due to space constraints. I prefer to screw the wire in a "C" shape to standard outlets. The refer outlet in my 24'er powered only one outlet, the lower outlet was never hot. Used a standard outlet and box so if needed I could plug in a droplight when working back there. By the way, when using a GFI, the line (power) must go on the bottom lugs to be effective.
