In addition to purchasing the DVM.
YOu should use it.

Check your voltage at the batteries. Unplugged, motor off.

Check your voltage at the batteries. Plugged in to Shore Power.

Check your voltage at the batteries. Unplugged. Engine running.

Check your voltage at the batteries. Unplugged, Engine off. Generator running.

Tell us what you found for each one,,, or if you see where you went. Give us your diagnosis.

You may need a Converter, or a new automatic switch. (assuming you have one, most do)

Ok. I ran the voltage on all the batteries and outlets once I got it home and on generator and all of them said 121.3. I finally got the cover off the circuit board on the back of the fridge and the 5 amp fuse was blown. Replaced it and so far no more low voltage to the fridge!! WHOO HOOOO I was getting ready to take it to the dealer to fix it and god knows what they would have told me it would cost. This way I paid 3.70 for 5 fuses.

Although I had just picked the motorhome up for the repair shop and 1,155.00 fuel pump/oil change/towing fees later.. UGH Needless to say I was very happy the fuse appears to have fixed the voltage issue.

Good job! And thank you for posting your results.

I got a laugh (at myself) out of that line! When I first read it I thought it said all of your batteries tested at 121.3 volts..no wonder you blew a fuse

Upon re-reading (a little more carefully) I see what you really said!!I think I need a nap to improve my reading comprehension.....
