Customer Question
I have coachman rise...

I have coachman rise 28'. It's only been used 4 times. I'm about to leave home and I was going to run refrigerator on propane enroute . When I turn it on gas the check light immediately comes on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The check light on top on refrigerator face next to auto light

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

2017

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

Made sure I was getting propane to the unit. I checked fuse and circuit breaker

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I plugged unit into extension cord connected to my house and it didn't work either
