What is the model of the Norcold? Should be a sticker inside the fridge.

So a E3 code is telling you the DC voltage is out of range, the fridge uses 12 volts DC to turn on and work, so if the the battery voltage is to high or to low then you can get this fault. The voltage should be between 12.2 volts and 14.2 volts. IF you are not plugged into power then I would plug the RV in and see what happens. IF you have good DC battery voltage then it may be a component issue with the fridge and I would have the dealer look at it under warranty.

Below is a service manual link for this fridge, might be good to have

We are using AC at campsite

Understand but the control voltage is the DC voltage, check the fuses inside the RV as well.

Verify you have over 12.2 volts at the battery. Very possible the fridge has an issue as well this is new fridge to the RV world that Norcold makes that uses a 12 volt compressor.
