Jayco Jay Flight 235mbhw - Fridge

Getting my Jayco Jay Flight 235mbhw up and ready for the first camp trip of the season and can't get anything from Fridge. Seems like it's getting no power from either battery or electric. Am I missing something?

What brand fridge? That will help you get a better response.

If it is a typical gas/electric fridge it will require 12 volts in order to operate in either mode. If it has an interior light that won't come on (provided it isn't burnt out) that is a good indication you aren't receiving power. If you were missing the 120 volts only it would still operate in propane mode so you can ignore the 120 volt portion for now.

First check, are your other 12 volt items, such as lights, working normally. If so then odds are your battery is working and should at least light up your fridge. If the lights are out then you have an overall loss of 12 volts.

If 12 volts is available for other items, check your fuse panel for the fuse that protects the fridge. That fuse may also protect other 12 volt items. If the fuse checks ok, hopefully tested with a voltmeter, the next area to check would be the 12 volt power connection at the rear of the fridge. Could be a loose wire, no power there, bad ground connection, etc.

Poke around and see what you can find.

Ever-Chill is the fridge brand. Tested all the battery connections, tightened a couple but still no power.

Ditto on what Jim said. If you seem to have power everywhere in the RV, then try this.
You need to get an electric meter and test for incoming voltage to the printed circuit board via the outside cover. Once you verify you have 12vdc and 120vac, then check the fuses on the board. Pull the two leads off the board that go to the heating element to the right. Check the board there for 120 volts. If you have 120 to the board but nothing to the heat element, then you have a bad board or a bad control board in the refrigerator.
Best wishes, Kevin
