Residential Fridge Trouble

Good day,

Just picked up our 2017 377rlbh today at the dealer. Drove from New Mexico to Iowa to pick it up. Everything went well during the PDI. However, we stopped over in Salina, KS tonight on the way back to NM and now I have no power to the fridge after setting up camp. We're on shore power and everything else seems to be working properly (A/Cs etc.). Checked the fuse box and flipped the breaker for the fridge on and off...nothing. Tested the gfi plug in the kitchen and reset it...nothing.

I'm probably overlooking something simple...should have paid a little more attention during that part of the PDI! Maybe I need to turn it on somewhere?

Any thoughts?

I'd double check that the plug didn't come undone, if not check that the outlet has power to it.
Make sure it's turned on too!

I got my TT in Iowa too. Thompson Family RV. About 1200 miles away.

Off subject. FYI Make sure you tighten your wheel bearings and adjust your brakes soon after you get back (I went on a couple 200 mile trips after I got back home) home. Mine were loose and needed to be tightened.

Not a big deal but it's often overlooked in a new trailer.

Thanks, Jhowemca. Pulled the drawer out again and hooked my DW's haird dryer up to the plug...no power. The gfi plug on the island is working.

I will definitely do that. Thanks for the tip!

There is a reset on the side of the transfer switch, push it.

On my way through Great Bend, KS today, I stopped in to the local Jayco dealer...Harper Camperland. Was there all of 10 minutes...a very helpful lad at the service desk shoewed me how to turn on the inverter in the hallway. Worked like a charm. I knew it was going to be something simple, just didn't know it was going to be that simple!

But if you are hooked up to shore power, there shouldn't be any reason to have your inverter on to run your fridge.

Hmmm....back home now. I'll fiddle with it tonight. I was just happy to see it come on and assumed inverter on = fridge on and that's how it worked. I'll plug in here at home and see what happens.

Thanks, Frank.

X-2 The inverter has a built in transfer switch and should automatically connect to shore power even with the switch off.
