I still think it may be a low voltage issue since the Dometic refrigerator is set to auto and never switched to the 120V supply which it typically does when set to "auto"
Any thoughts and additional troubleshooting I might be able to perform?
Thanks for your help.
Check your start capacitor and PTCR (motor starter device). They are located under the shroud on the curb side of the A/C unit. Remove 2- 5/16" hex heads and pull the metal cover off to reveal your A/C relay/control board and the capacitors.
It is fairly common in FL to blow up the start caps in high temp/humidity situations.
