Dometic Fridge

just pulled our first airstream home. A 25 ft 89 excella. Fridge was replaced in 98. Its works great when we pluged in to power, but during the ride home it did not work off the LP. We also had two tires blow, and had to jack it up so I am wondering if something happened when we raised the airstream.
Also the little pin that hold the handle on the fridge clasp is missing- any help would be great.

First...Congratulations on your new Airstream! Our second trailer will be around the size of yours.

Second...Where did you put the jack? Proper placement is between the wheels.

Third...Do you know that the Fridge worked on LP before you left the Previous Owner (PO)?

Hi-
The jack was put in many places, as we ended up having to replace all tires.
I looked under there, it looks fine, but maybe soemthing happened inside.
The firdge did work on Lp the day before. it seemed to take a lon time to get cold, but it did work.

Many thanks in advance.
Angie

Check the burner. It is probably dirty. If the fridge works well on electric but not well on gas, that's a likely cause. You should have the refrigerator professionally serviced -- a faulty gas fridge can cost you an entire Airstream!
