Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What is the make and model of the fridge?

Will the fridge turn ON, is the interior light ON?

Thanks, Robert

Dometic model RM2363 Does not appear to have an interior light
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

OK

When you try to run it on propane does the flame fire off? IF needed go outside and verify if the flame is going.

Need to know if the fridge appears to be working but the box is not cooling or there is no power at all to the fridge.

A call is not necessary yet. We moved the vehicle to a more level location (away from our house) and the freezer is starting to be cold. Maybe we just weren't level enough!! We'd like to give it time (2-3 hours) to confirm the cold -- then if we're still not sure . . . we'll talk again. Thanks for now.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Understand and that is a good sign, the freezer will get cold long before the box has a chance. Give it a full 8 hours and you should be at the desired temp. No worries on the call, the company Just Answer offers the calls for an added fee, I do not offer calls.

IF you do need more help with this please respond back to this, I am around daily and respond when I can.

Have a fantastice weekend.
