Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

With what you have described here this sounds like a fault with the thermostat itself.I have seen the thermostat assembly fail and causes no display as well as in allot of cases no control of temp.The chassis fuses will be for vehicle operation only usually engine and transmission and exterior chassis lights and electronics.

Your fuses for the heater and ac should be in the panel/converter below the fridge itself like most models have.Make sure they are all o.k.

If they are I suspect the thermostat itself has failed or there is a broken or damaged wire leading from the fuse panel/converter to the thermostat and the wiring needs checked for any issues and repaired as needed.

If all fuses are o.k. and you cannot see any wiring faults yourself you will need to have the thermostat itself tested to see if it needs replaced.This is usually done by an RV repair facility with the proper diagrams for your model.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
