Refrigerator has No Power?

Help, just setup last night & the refrigerator has no power. It was working on propane before we left but now itís dead. No lights inside so I know that means I have no 12vdc going to the unit. Checked all fuses at the main breaker panel. Even checked the 5amp fuse inside the outside refrigerator panel. Thatís good. My control panel outside has no lights on it, I have the Norcold N811 model. I donít have a volt meter with me, but what else can I check? We had a full packed refrigerator too, of course.
I have a 2016 29.5 BHDS 5íer BTW

Thanks,
Dave...

Are the lights inside your rig working? What else is working and what is not. There is a fuse at the battery also.

Can you borrow a bit of wire from something and one of your marker light bulbs to check for voltage?

Our JayFeather 23bhm occasionally blows a 30amp fuse that causes no power to the trailer.

On that model the fuse is below the A-Frame where there is a junction box. The rubber fuse holder hangs by it under the battery box.

As far as I can tell, Everything else in the camper is working fine. All other 12v things like the usb chargers & lights. I have no lights inside the refrigerator.

Ok, I tracked down a volt meter. I have no 12volt power coming into the refrigerator? The wire goes up into the wall so I have no idea where itís routed too.
I think I will tap off the 12v power at the outside sink tank level button.

Check your fuses again. Put in a replacement or use your VOM. They will sometimes look good but are actually burned thru.

Ok, double checked the fuses with the meter. All are good. So I tapped into the outside sink, gray tank status indicator. I went behind the factory clips where the feed goes from 16 gauge down to like 22 gauge. Ran a pair of 18 gauge wires under the outside kitchen slide, up the right side wall. Removed the outside refrigerator and drilled a hole through I think, 4 panels. All of this area is dead space behind the TV. Then I removed the bottom aluminum trim behind the door frame. Ran the wires inside this trim piece, up the right side. Drilled another small hole right into the refrigerator outside access panel. I removed the original clips from the factor 12 v feed and put them on my new wires. Tested everything before applying power again. Refrigerator is now working.

Glad to hear it's fixed.

Did you pull fuse panel and check the connection there? Set screws have been known to be loose.
