Fridge propane alarm

We just took out our 2018 Globetrotter 27FB out of winter storage. Propane is on, and stove, oven, and water heater are working fine. When we select propane for the refrigerator we get a flashing red light and alarm. Solution?
Thanks.

How’s the 12v power? Needed for control board I believe.

I think you can reset the red light by holding that button. When blinking or on, it indicates the fridge didn't start. It can take a while for the propane to get to the fridge, so it may not have lit the fridge burner. This has happened on my '19 27' Globetrotter. I either turn the propane on a couple days ahead of fridge startup or light the stovetop burners to purge most of the air from gas lines. It could take a little more time for gas to get to the fridge even after purging with the stove.

Thanks Farmer Dan.
We’ve not had this issue before, and I always run the gas range for awhile before lighting up the fridge. I tried every button, but never thought to actually PUSH the red alarm button. Issue solved.

Thanks rich. Turns out it was only a matter of pressing the red alarm button. Duh…
