Do you happen to have a volt meter?

Normally when the box does not cold on BOTH LP and AC power it is a cooling unit issue or thermistor problem, if you have a meter the thermistor can be ohmed out, if you do NOT have a meter what you can do is dis-connect the thermistor from the circuit board under the outside cover and let it run to see if the box cools. Either way I can give you more direction on what to do if you do not have a meter. Robert

I don't have a meter. When you say Thermistor, do you mean the thermostat?
The freezer works good.

Dometic Refrigerator model no. DM2852RBX. We purchased a
We purchased a 2015 Keystone Cougar travel trailer new January 2015 and first used June of 2015. Since that date we have had a problem for 5 years with the frig staying on when on propane. The frig works well on ac and propane as far as cooling and freezing. The problem is when on propane it will run for any where from an hour to two days and then shuts down. It can be restarted and operates for a period and shuts down and then needs to be restarted We have had 5 rv techs work on it but the problem continues. A certified keystone shop in Powell Wyoming 2015, the dealer we bought it from in 2016, Camping World after discussion with Dometic customerservice 2017, mobile RV at Quake Lake Montana 2018 and Grand Mobile RV Denver 2019.
