Howdy and welcome to, horse97! Although, I note that you joined in '08 and this is your first post! Congratulations on leaving your lurker status, there's lots of good stuff to be learned here.

As your for your refer, this company RV Mobile, sells new "guts" for old units. They also seem to have a wide assortment of parts, and explataions of what's going on when your refer won't cool.

I have never used them, nor do I know if your unit is available from them, but it's a start...! Find your model number, and have a look.

First off what is wrong with the frig. Has the unit lost the charge? Are the controls not working? is it off on both gas and electric?

I ask this because we may be able to help before you take off for the Dealer.

Some of the Old Unit respond to just removing them and rolling them end over end to the side. The liquid crystallizes and becomes a PLUG but rolling them can free this problem.

You can do some checking yourself and maybe save big$$$$$

I would make sure the refer is level then try to fire it up and see what happens. If the boiler is good and you are reasonably handy you could probably get it to work with our help. If you want to give it a try let us know.
When leveling; put a level on the freezer floor and check in both directions. This is much more accurate than the leveling guages on the trailer.
Can you post a photo of the refer controls? Do they look like this?
