OK. Thank you. The error display means that the 12 volt d.c. power has dropped out of the specified range, probably on the low side. You'll need to find out why. If you're using house power, it's most likely a problem with the on board charger Also check the battery condition and the battery terminals. They should be clean and tight.

dc voltage shows 12.5 to 13.0 battery terminals are clean and tight

In that case, the control board will probably need to be replaced. It's usually best to have a Norcold technician diagnose the problem, so you are'nt buying parts you don't need to replace.
