Don't let an unfinished camper stop you from camping. Our first trip, toilet in (something about your own vs an outhouse) and refrigerator in (something about cold beer). Threw in a mattress and a card table and chairs and went. Second trip had a little more, third even more.

We don't mind at all the idea of using our camper before it's at 100%... One can get lots of great ideas at campgrounds! But we've definitely got to clean out the almost 40 years of funk before we hit the road.

Post pics of the refer. Along with the model number. They are relatively simple units. As long as the unit hasn't lost the ammonia. Chances are you can get it to go.

Plugged it in, but got nothing... No lights, nothing to indicate the unit is getting power.
Also, does anyone have any experience with campers that have had truck-bed liner material sprayed on? See photos in previous post.
Thanks!

You have a much-newer fridge that will require 12v to the control board before it *might* work on electric... those lights at the top are a giveaway.

Yep! Looks like you need 12 volts DC along with the 120 volts AC.
12volt control boards are noted for failing.
Don't give up before you replace the board.
Do you have a way to check the propane side?
Looks like a nice refer. In good shape.
