water in fridge compartment + outside air leak over frig
Just got back from Big Bend, Tx.
If my gas bottles are shut off, like after storage or I recently thought I had a gas leak and shut the valves for a few minutes. When I turn the valves back on the frig. sometimes is hard starting the first time. If it won't start on gas I get the other gas fixtures going, hot water, stove top etc. to stabalize the gas in the lines and waite 10 minutes and my frig will start.
I also recently drove several hours in some heavy wind and rain and the frig would not light. I was nervous because we just stocked up on 3 wks of meat and were boon docking on Padre Island Tx.. I took the cover plate off the frig and lit the frig with a lighter. After heating up it must of dryed out the electic parts and then worked fine.
Duing this Padre Island issue I notice gas smells coming in the cabin of the trailer. From the top of the frig. It turns out that I had a 1 inch gap above the cabinent over the frig. and the ceiling. It was hard to detect with t he rounded ceiling. Being on the ocean the wind exagerated the problem. But in reality for the last 3 years half the fumes were going out the chimney and half into the trailer. I rolled up some fine bubble wrap and sealed the leak to the cabin.
