This code indicates a communication fault with the control module/control box.This can be the control module/control box itself at fault.I would disconnect the batteries and unplug from shore power then access the control box.Usually it is at the back of the fridge accessed from an outside panel removed.Make sure all wiring and connections are clean and tight.They may need unplugged and blown off then plugged back in to reset this.If this does not work then I suspect the control box has failed unfortunately and needs replaced.

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
