We have a norcold...

We have a norcold refrigerator in our RV. When we disconnect from land power, the fridge beeps and shows an error message of "No AC". how do I keep the fridge cold while traveling? help! Doug

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you know the model of your Norcold fridge? How old is it?

2118sst. The RV is 2017, I presume the fridge is ditto

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Norcold refrigerator? What have you tried so far?

We bought the Fifth wheel a month ago. We've tried the different options available to us with modes, page 9 of the Owners Manual

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just that I'm technically incompetent!

Good afternoon! Thank you for bringing your question to us here at Just Answer. I have an RV repair facility and work on these for a living and I fully understand the frustration you have when things are not working as they should. I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your Norcold fridge. Set the control on "LP" mode. That should solve this. Or put it on "Auto" and it will chose AC mode if available, and if not it will go over to LP mode. Just be sure that the LP tank(s) are turned all the way on. That should solve this for you. Please get back to me again if you need additional assistance as all follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit. Thanks! Randall in RV

Did you miss my response to your question about leaving the LP tank on? I said "Yes" to that.
