Dometic 3-way on our pop up camper. Won't go on propane.

Customer Question
Dometic 3-way on our...

Dometic 3-way on our pop up camper. Won't go on propane. Just clicks and lights flash. I have a battery charger on battery now (voltage low at 9.6 otherwise. 54A fuse and 3 A fuse OK

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the battery? And have you tested it with a voltmeter?

Not quite 3 years old. camper new from dealer, probably not a great battery from factory. Volt meter read 12V when I disconnected charger, then went immmediately to 9.1V

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Volt?

Don't understand question.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Volt yourself? What have you tried so far?

Checked fuses, propane works as I can light stove. Hooked up charger to see if added voltage would start refrig (no, just clicking/flashing and then it goes to DC power on frig.

You need more voltage and it won't run on 12 VDC mode either. That mode is only for when you are moving down the road and the battery(s) are getting charged by the vehicle. What is the model of this fridge and I can offer more here and supply a Service Manual. All follow ups are included in our fee.

So did you get the battery voltage back up to where it needs to be?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
When the charger is on, voltage 12+V, but refrig goes onto DC powqer, not propane. When I disconnect the charger, voltage drops below 10V

This isn't working, so I'm gone.
