There are only two wires involved. The white wire is ground and the colored wire is +12v. These go to the terminal block on the lower left of the fridge. The block will have two openings for wires with clamp screws. Just look on the fridge wiring diagram for which wire goes where.

If you need to extend burned-off wires, use #14 automotive hookup wire in appropriate colors.

I'm a long ways from knowledgeable about RV refer wiring, but isn't 115V AC also involved?

The fridge has a regular 120v plug that goes into an outlet somewhere in the refrigerator compartment. I didn't mention that since I thought it was obvious.

Thanks,

I remember seeing that now that you mention it.

thanks for all the help and the link... yeah i got the 120 volt side under control... it is just when i got into things there were like 20 wires in a bundle and could not see what color was what... now the fun of tracing down the wires...

the first picture should be the bundle from the floor to behind the fridge.. the two blues are for sure to the thermostat for the front furnace... and the brown and white ground should go to the light above the dinette... not sure about the rest...

The fridge uses very little 12v. Just about any white-color pair should give you enough 12v to run the fridge. the only 12v loads are lights, control box electronics, igniter, and gas valve. All of these are light loads. Just check that you have 12v between the pair you choose or get the color from someone else with a similar year rig.

Here's the Installation manual for the Dometic fridges:
http://gasrefrigeration.net/dom_tech...300_2800OP.PDF
Has the wire connections, guages, requirements, etc.
I was looking for the same answers, so this is what I came across.
Hope that helps!
