Dometic RM2607 Fridge

In a trailer I recently bought there was this uninstalled Dometic RM2607. It was uncrated but looks unused. Obviously 2 way, but maybe 3 way?. There is the propane connection, a 110 plug and 12 ga white and red wires ( I assume for 12v. I don't have propane connected. I plugged it into 110 and nothing happens. No display lights. Could it be the fridge needs to be connected to 12v for the circuit board or something to get it running on 110 or propane? Anybody know if this is a 2 way or 3 way fridge? Are there any fuses or something I can check?
Thanks
Marshnall

Yes, it needs 12 volts DC to operate the control system.

If there are two heaters on the boiler chimney it would be a 3 way refrigerator, if only one, then it is a 2 way. Probably a 2 way, most are these days.

Right now the fridge is in a building and is not installed in the trailer. Do you think hooking up a low output 120v ac to 12v dc transformer ( the kind that plugs directly into the wall for small electronics) would fire up the control system?

I would not do that, as the circuit boards need clean current and a transformer may damage the board. Use a car battery and a 20# barbecue tank to test it. Make sure to have a regulator on the LP tank when you test it.
