Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Ask Your Own RV Question

Which make and model do you have here? Are you running this just off the batteries? If so, they will run down very quickly without some external charging and when they drop down the fridge will quit cooling. Get back to me with this information and I can direct you in some checks to sort this out. All follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.

I have 2 solar panels I bought van new with everything fitted in the fridge manual it said in troubleshooting to charge batteries i had them tested told m they were on way out replaced them no difference

Are you sure that you got them connected properly? I would check that with a meter. Were they 6 VDC batteries connected in series or 12 VDC batteries connected in parallel? Be sure that the polarity is correct. Easy to get it backwards. Let me know what you find. What is the make and model of your fridge?
