My fridge keeps swithing to DC power. I just replacded the axsilery batery. The gas burner dosent ligt, gas is tured on. How can get the fridge to run on AC when pluged in and gas when not pluged in to ac power?
I dont believe the inverter is working. I have plug it into ac outlet making sure batery switch is on and the turning inveter switch to on noting happens.
What is the make and model of the fridge?
Domestic, all I have is installation insructionsions covering RM & NDR. It is a 4 cubic feet with seperat frezer unit door inside. where can I find the model # XXXXX the unit?
Should be a sticker inside the door it will be a RM and then a number...... It will help....
I found the instructions Mounted on the inside and was able to get it working on gas and AC. I there a way to test the inverer to make sure it is functioning?
What is the Make and Model of the RV
You will have an inverter OR power converter.... An inverter allows you to travel down the road and have AC power for your outlets, TV, Microwave etc..... A power converter will not do that, a power converter takes the incoming AC voltage and makes the DC voltage and charges the battery.....
As far as the fridge, when you are plugged in and AUTO is selected it should always go to AC power, when you loose AC power it should switch over to LP automatically.......
Let me know if you have a power converter or inverter...... Robert

2007 Roadtrek 210 popular. It is an inverter, way to test in it is funtioning properly? I was having trouple finding how to reply to your question
The inverter will do two things.... 1... it will take the DC battery voltage when unplugged and make AC voltage, the catch is it uses your battery voltage so if the batteries are weak then you are not going to get much out of the inverter. On most rigs they do have an inverter to power a few outlets a TV, but not the roof AC'S because the power demand is to great on the batteries, if you were running everything unplugged off the inverter it would not take long for the batteries to discharge.
2. The other function is when you are plugged in the inverter will charge the battery. One check you can do is unplug the shorepower cord, wait about 1 hour, get a voltage reading. Plug back in and watch the voltage at the battery, it should come up to around 13.5 volts and then maintain around 12.8 volts.....
I might be able to verify what works when using the inverter traveling down the road if you like? It will take me a few mins to get that information.....
I went ahead and got the specific information for your model....
NOTE: INVERTERYour Owner’s Manual for RV750ULHW contains most of the essential information you need to enjoy the electricalconveniences of home while at RV parks or dry camping. However, we wish to highlight for you exactly how thecharging portion of the inverter/charger works, in order to help avoid possible confusion:Supplying shore power or, (optional) generator power enables the RV750ULHW to charge the auxiliary battery(ies). Operation of your vehicle engine and alternator will also charge the auxiliary battery (ies). When yourmotorhome is not plugged into shore power or, (optional) AC generator power, all electricity you use draws powerfrom your motorhome’s auxiliary battery bank, with the inverter allowing you to enjoy quiet DC-to-AC, (12 volt to110 volt) power in the absence of shore or generator power.10V inverter/charger shut downAs a safety feature, the inverter component of the RV750ULHW inverter/charger, (which changes DC battery powerto AC electricity) will shut itself down when your auxiliary battery bank drops below 10 volts DC. This occurs inorder to avoid excessive discharging and potential damage to the battery (ies), as well as to preserve sufficientbattery voltage to maintain the functionality and readiness of the battery charger component of the RV750ULHW .It is possible, however, for the battery (ies) to become discharged below 10 volts DC as a function of activity otherthan using the inverter. For example, while dry camping, in the absence of shore or generator power, if a 12 voltappliance such as the furnace or lights are left on for an extended period of time. In that event, the batterycharger component of the RV750ULHW will become inoperative. Therefore, after plugging into shore power orsupply of, (optional) generator power, it is possible that the battery (ies) may not be recharging. The indicators ofthis situation will be either completely dark LED lights on the monitor panel of the RV750ULHW inverter/charger, anda continuously blinking red LED light on the battery voltage readout, or all three LED lights continuously blinkingon the battery voltage readout on the RV750ULHW.Inverter/charger start up after automatic safety shut downTo remedy this situation, start the automotive engine, to allow the charger to sense a voltage of higher than 10volts. The indicator of success will be a transition on the monitor panel from yellow inverted power LED light tothe green line power illuminated LED light.This may take up to 60 seconds. At this point the engine can be turnedoff, because the charger has been activated and “takes over” the function of charging the battery (ies). Oncebattery voltage has risen sufficiently for your purposes, (e.g., to the yellow, yellow-green, or green “full charge”level), shore power or, (optional) generator power can be disconnected, although disconnection is not required;the charger will automatically reduce the rate of charge to prevent the battery (ies) from becoming overcharged.Dry camping battery conservationWhile dry camping, (no 110 VAC power available) to conserve battery power, it is recommended to switch theinverter to the off or charge position, if the inverter is left in the ON position, it will continue to draw 1.25 amps. Toease in switching of the inverter, we have installed a clearly labeled remote switch located at the control panelarea.Receptacle functionality (Inverter Circuits)When using your motorhome and connected to shore power or optional generator, the receptacles in theaudio/video cabinet and in the galley will function to the 15 amp capacity supplied from the distribution panel.However when no shore power or option generator power is available, these receptacles are limited to the 750watts.If an overload occurs, the inverter will shut down, and will need to be reset manually, by turning of the inverter offfor 1 minute, removing the load, and then turn the inverter back on.
Hope this helps some more... Robert
I do have this information in my owners manual and I have been referencing it. I don't have a volt meter. Have you been able to find a way to check it while traveling?
The only way will to be get a volt meter and check to make sure the aux battery is being charged with the enigne running and when plugged into shorepower.
The other portion you would know if you are missing the AC powered items, from what I can tell the inverter will shut down to protect the batteries under 10 volts which is good.
Pretty much all you can do is verify the battery is being charged, if the AC items are working when you are driving down the road. Robert
Thanks for the information
