It's a BATTERY DC ISSUE. Meaning anywhere from the battery to and through the control board.UNPLUG FOR SAFETY. Then go outside to the access panel and check 12 volt wire going into refrigerator. Does it have power?


Correct. 120 volts has NOTHING to do with operation of the refer control panel. From your description, you had a POWER surge from the Genset and the higher voltage caused the Power Converter to surge the 12 volt output and blew some fuses. Odds are the blown fuse is on the Norcold rear control board behind that black box. Doug

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. Turns out a fuse on the panel was mislabeled as a spare! The label said the fridge & furnace were on the same fuse. We got the furnace working but no fridge. Before tackling the black box, etc., we decided to check the other fuses and the one for the fridge had been labeled as a spare. Easy fix and problem solved. Thanks again.

Did you relabel the fuse as "Fridge" if not .. Do so.

one thing I love about the Progressive Dynamics fuse panel in my Rig.
It's Blown LED's
So when one blows the LED glows.

Also check the truth of the AC breaker labelling. [emoticon]
