Howdy and welcome to Just Answer.  My name is ***** ***** and I am a Master Certified RV Tech. I understand how frustrating RV issues can be.  I have been  working on RVs for 35 plus years.   I see you are having some issues with your fridge showing low dc voltage.  Are you plugged into shore power or are you just running off the battery?

I am running the generator most of the time. We have no power that we can plug into. The fridge has settings like LP AU and AC maybe I have it turned on to the wrong setting.
RV Mechanic: KevinS121,
 replied 1 year ago

If you are on AU, the fridge will choose the best source of energy to run the fridge.  When you do not have the generator on, it will light up on the LP gas and continue to run.  It will run until the battery gets too low.

Okay. I have a 2003 beaver santiam. My refrigerator is not working. When you open either door it says lo DC. We got new batteries and a new COMBI inverter/charger and a new recall kit all within the last few weeks. This was to handle our refrigerator clicking and lo DC error on the refrigerator panel leading up to intermittent power shut off. Now refrigerator is flashing AU but is not on. For a while turning off the inside Inverter inside on the control panel and shutting off the battery for a short while and then turning it on again successfully turned the refrigerator back on. If I press the on button on the refrigerator it flashes AU and goes off. On the panel DC amps read 10 and DC volts 13.5. House batteries charge at variousvolts ranging from 12 to 13.5. Our RV mechanic told me to charge batteries. What do you think? … read more
