Jim, you didn't mention if it is not cooling on both electric and gas. More information needed.
Trouble shooting tips might help you out.

Open the outside cover and see if there is any yellow stuff showing.

Still need more info ... any error lights on the door? Is light on inside the fridge? Did it stop cooling all of a sudden? Has breaker been tripped? Power needs to be going to fridge whether on gas or elec.

Is your "House" Battery fully charged and the disconnect switch in the ON position? You need a good 12 volt supply for the refer board to operate on propans or 120 V AC electric.

FUSES
This model is equipped with 2 fuses, one for the refrigerator
control system and one for AC cartridge heater.

To replace fuses proceed as follows.
1. Disconnect the wall plug, and the 12 volt wires.
2. Remove the power module cover.
3. Snap the fuse out of the fuse holder.
4. Fit a new fuse in to the fuse holder.
5. Replace the power module cover.

Control system 3 Amp
AC heater 5 Amp

I had the same problem a while back. After changing just about everything on the fridge without any permanent resolution (including 2 Amish cooling units), I put a Kitchen Aid 2 door household refrigerator in and couldn't be more pleased. NO ONE really understands the problems these 12 cu ft units experience, and they therefore cannot fix them. Do what you have to do, but problems like this can be a real money pit. Just be aware. There are not too many new coaches using these units any longer, with good reason.

Have same fridge, and it stopped cooling early last year. After checking the power and fuses, I opened the outside access and to the left was a yellow spot. Coolant leak. Took MH to my RV service guy and he confirmed the cooling coil was leaking. He ordered a new coil from RV COOL (RVCOOL.com), which is where my service contract company directed him to go, and everything was back like new in about 6 weeks. Rebuilt cooling unit was about $850, labor was about $500, and I paid the $200 deductible.
