Fridge won't light on gas

Leaving for backcountry trip tomorrow and as fate has it my fridge won't light.
Trailer is brand new, took it out July 4th for 3 day break in worked flawlessly.

Here is what Ive tried:
1.Lite the stove first to help bleed air out
2.Turned On the fridge to auto (One tiny click and then silence)
3.within 10 seconds it switches over to the n symbol

Round two:
1.skip auto setting and cycle thru to LP
2. within 10 seconds it switches over to the n symbol

Called the dealer weren't much help
Checked all the fuses AOK

Anyone had success lighting the Norcold manually the old school way?
Love backcountry but keeping the food cold is always a challenge
Not a huge fan of Norcold in general, this is my second one..First one was worse manual lighting only while getting ravaged by mosquitos...

Any help appreciated.

How many times did you try it. Sometimes it takes 3 to 5 times, maybe more.

Only problem I have had with mine in almost 6 years is cobwebs in the gas tube.
Another probable cause is loose connections. I would manually reseat each push on wire connection in the compartment.

When I start my Norcold on propane I get a couple of clicks as it's switching over from AC to propane. Then I get a whole bunch of ticking noises which is the electric spark trying to ignite the propane. If it's not quiet you won't hear them. The ticks come in groups of six, probably about ten groups for a total of about 60 ticks. Then if it doesn't light I get the fail message.

If you're not hearing all these ticks then that is your problem. I usually have to let it fail about three times before the gas gets to the fridge but it always lights. And stays lit at 70 MPH! (Unlike the water heater which goes out if you sneeze at.)

Board reset at the dealer totally did the trick, I explained to the tech I read about that working on this forum, he tried it and it worked flawlessly he even let me keep the wire in case I need to do it again.
