08 Jayco G2 27BH, Norcold Fridge

I am having some difficulties understanding my fridge. It runs on gas no problem. I have a two way fridge. When plugged in at home to my house (new build, lots of power), I have 120v to the trailer but the fridge will not run. If I plug the trailer into my Briggs and Stratton Generator the fridge will run and if I disconnect the fridge at the service door and plug it into my house independently it will run. So why won't my fridge work when trailer is plugged in to same plug. I have already replaced the heating element.

Transfer Switch

Not an electrical person at all. Where would this be on my rig?

Sounds like the fridge itself is ok if it works plugged directly into your house. When you have the shore power cord plugged into the house, and your fridge is not working, are the other AC components functioning? Like microwave? Wall outlets?

That's the confusing part. Everything else works. All lights, microwave, AC.... everything except the fridge when plugged into shore power. Plug into generator and fridge works along with everything else.

There is conversation online about a transfer switch, but my trailer doesn't have a built in generator. I use an external one that plugs into the main power cord for AC. So I don't understand how the trailer would recognize anything different.

I have spoken to an electrician who says this does not make any logical sense. So here I am looking for any suggestions.

Thanks a bunch.
