Dometic RM2820 won't turn on


My airstream was under construction for a few years so the fridge sat un-used during that time period. It worked fine before I began renovations but now it doesn't seem to want to turn on. We checked the 110 and it is getting power from the outlet to the lower components but when I press the "on" button on the upper control face nothing happens. Thank you for your help with this. I began full timing today so getting this fixed is somewhat of a priority.

I hate to even ask the obvious but have you checked that you are getting 12vdc to the board?

I had an epiphany. When I was renovating it, the 12v line for the fridge was on a different fuse block than the distribution panel said it should be on. I put it back on its original, which is apparently no good.
To answer your question, I did not check the 12v, my GFs dad is an electrician and was back there checking and all he mentioned was the 110v. Either way it is back to its former glory.
