Good afternoon! I have an RV repair facility and work on these systems for a living. This is not uncommon if the fridge has been sitting idle for some time. What is the exact model number so I can supply a link to the right Service Manual for you. Randall

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Not 300 pages! And yes, it should be turned on once a month and allowed to run for a few hours.
