Traveled cross-country with reefer on LP. Sat for two weeks with the same. Ginally got to site with hook-up and when I try to put the fridge on "auto a/c" it switches and within 15 secs I get the "no a/c" alarm. Any suggestions to prevent me driving one hour to a Camping World?

Go outside and pull the refer cover off. Unplug the refer from the 110 outlet and test the outlet. Use a volt meter OR a lamp, hairdryer, anything that has a cord and uses 110. IF you DO NOT have voltage at the outlet, then go backwards, and start checking breakers, GFCI's (although it should not be on a GFCI) but you never know how it was wired. Turn each breaker ALL The WAY off and back on to "reset" them. Go back and check the plug.
IF YOU DO have voltage at the plug, then look on the back of the refer. Find the black box cover and remove it. Inside you will find 2 fuses, one for the 12volt system and one for the 120 volt system. Check each one. If the fuses are good then suspect either the heating element or the board and will require a trip to a dealer. Good luck and let us know what you find.
Fuses blow for a reason. I would try and determin the cause. You don't need to have it happen again and not catch it as spoiled food would not be pleasant.
I very much agree with this statement. However, we may never know what the reason is. I have replaced fuses and never had them blow again. I always check with a meter to try and figure out why a fuse blew, and often find a short, or very high resistance. But sometimes you just have to shake your head and say "its a bad fuse"
