Norcold Problem

Just today we switched over to gas to leave for a campout and the lights flashed, indicating a problem.. The unit was already cold, running on electric since our last trip a few weeks ago. It had run on gas that trip home.

We got by with some dry ice for a few hours and are now in the campground, and it seems to be working fine on ac. I fired the water heater on gas for a while and lit the stove, and supply isn't the problem. TT is still in warranty, but I'm holding off until 1 November to get a host of minor problems fixed at once. Any thoughts as to what's going on? Thanks.

Now that you have fired up the water heater and(probably) the stove try the fridge again.. might have just had some air in the lines... On a side note the fridge will hold cold for over 6 hours if you do not open the door..

I usually activate a burner on the stove and when I can get gas to that then I switch the fridge over to gas and it usually lights right up. I have had this problem several times on my '11 Jayfeather and I have come to the conclusion that the gas is just slow getting back the 20 some feet to the fridge.

It was just dirty. Took off the panel and hit it with air as someone suggested. Guess that needs to be done a couple times a year. We do have five miles of really dirty dirt road, so that must now be a routine maintenance item. Thanks for suggestions.

Canned dust remover works great, Not as force full as air compresser to harm jet.
