Oh no. Here we go again. Fridge was working great, until we turned on the inverter last night while dry camping. After a couple hours I noticed water on the floor. The fridge had turned itself off and the freezer was defrosting.

Will be at Jackson Center in 10 days. Hope they can fix this for good.

I have had the Nampa AS do the service on our '02 Classic since they have been there. Nampa, Idaho service manger Zonia Allen is the best. We have been over 10,000 miles since they spring serviced our AS, and it has been perfect.

They were great with us too. And they got fridge working. But must be some other problem with the system as well. Am hoping that, if we just don't turn inverter on, fridge will stay working until we get to Jackson Center.

Sounds like the fridge is working on 12VDC but not 120VAC. I would have them check it at JC. Does it work when on generator or shore power? I would also have them put in that 120VAC disconnect switch we talked about so you can isolate it to run exclusively on 12VDC batteries when you use the inverter.

It works on shore power. And it works when not on shore powne (since the repair in Nampa). It stopped working only when we turned on the inverter. And started working again when we turned inverter off.

Not sure about when on generator. We r running gen right now (for its monthly workout). I'll check fridge in an hour or so to see if it's still running.

In Kansas City, MO now. Awesome city! Hot and humid as heck though. Happy to be running the gen w/ the a/c cranking!!

We ran generator for just over an hour. Couldn't tell if fridge was running or not. Too loud to hear the compressor, and not long enough for it to start defrosting if it did stop running.

Oh well. For now, if we turn on inverter during the day, it's just for a very short time, and then we turn it off, and fridge seems to be happy.
