Fridge... Should I worry?

On my 2010, We haven't taken the Stream out for about 2 weeks and always let the propane or plug run the fridge while stored in the driveway. No telling when we will just get up and go. So some items are left in the fridge. Well, for the past 4 days the Stream has been unplugged and running on propane. I went out yesterday and opened the fridge and it was warm inside. So I walk to the front of the stream and look at the propane bottles and the indicater is green. I then go inside and light the stove, all systems are a go...well minus the fridge. So I decide then to plug up the stream to the 110 outlet in the garage and everything is now working like it should.

Anyway, off to go camping now and I will look at this through my phone.

Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions.

Why do you use the store switch? Your fridge is probably fine then. But you only need the store switch when leaving your Airstream in storage, I think. Even then the batteries can eventually run down. We keep the Airstreams at home and never use the switch and rotate from battery to electric.

That's exactly what happened. When you turned off the batteries and unplugged from shore power you killed the fridge even though it was on propane. You need to leave the batteries on if you are not on shore power. As with most things, I learned this the hard way.

Hi, If your refrigerator control is like mine, you need to set it in the auto[matic] mode so it will change from a/c to gas when you unplug your trailer from shore power. If you set it manually to either gas or a/c it won't change over. And as you have just learned, your refrigerator needs 12 volts for the control panel to work.
