Default Thanks for the help

Hello Folks,
As a new guy on the block, I really appreciate the comeback on leveling my upper half on my 92 22ft. It worked really well, and I did cut off the excess stud because it seemed it could hamper tire changing somewhat. After I cycled the top a few times, I noticed a pool of redish fluid on the concrete about a foot in diameter. I looked up and saw a leak in the return hydraulic line. after removing the line, I discovered it to be a plastic tubing (pex ?) and was able to cut a small piece out and purchased a compression fitting from the NAPA store and fixed it for about $7. I now have a new problem--the fridge doesnt work at all, on any setting, gas, 110v, or 12v. I think this camper was stored for several years before being sold in the estate sale. Anybody got any Ideas on the fridge?
thanks again,

A guy once told me if the refrigerator has sat for a long time unused and won't work to turn the refrigerator upside down for a few hours, then turn it right side up and plug it in. I did this and it started working, I don't know why or understand why, I just know it worked.

Big Lou,

So true it does work but don't know exactly how. Had a fridge in another brand of camper years ago and done this same thing and bingo the fridge worked again.
