Dometic RM2807 issues

My dometic rm2807 fridge keeps shutting off in me. Control panels says I lose AC power. I have to unplug several times a day and reset the fridge. Any thoughts?

Mine is a rm3807. When I bought mine it would start ok, but after a few hours didn't work. Control panel didn't indicate any problem but if I turned it off for a while and then turned on again it would work fine for a few hours and then turn off again.
It turned out that the main control board would overheat and a transistor on the board would fail open.
There is a website about dometic fridge problems posted by someone in San Fransisco area that goes into great detail about trouble shooting your fridge.

If your 12 volt connection to the fridge is low or intermittent, it will give you problems also.

Got a solid 12v and no issues with the 120v either. I'm wondering if the control panel might be the cause of my issues. Amy ideas on where to start with this?

I have similarproblem with RM3807 in a 93 excella that had not been used a lot. While I really don't know anything for sure, I believe it to be an issue with control panel circuit board--fridge worked intermitent/slow to start sometimes, then fine--cooled entirely in 5 hours at home, then when at campsite, nothing--no lights on front panel even light, so we used coolers. After several days, when I pushed the button, the lights lit as they should but only for a few minutes. I have checked fuses, 12v and 110--have appt to take to a service provider next week. Anyone have insight? Thanks.
