Hello Thor 35' Windsport

Hello, recently purchased a 35' Windsport Class A. It has an issue with running the fridge on house batteries I need to get some help on please. Fridge works on land power or generator, but will not stay on with house batteries (brand new deep cycle 6v in series). This is preventing me from really enjoying it as the fridge is defunct while on the move.

Congratulations! Welcome to our group from South Texas! Have you checked to see if inverter is on?

Are you sure your fridge runs on 12V? Some do, I know, but most are 120 (shore power/generator) or propane. Many newer ones are residential and only run on shore power or thru the inverter using the house batteries.

Help with the fridge.

The fridge does run on propane, yet when the generator and land power are off/disconnected the fridge control panel that shows the power state is without power to show anything. There are LP, AC, and Generator indicators but the all go blank. I think my next hunt and seek will be to try to look for an inverter. I have no manuals of any kind for how this is wired, and Thor/FourWinds has no help as the VIn fails to show up in their system. They lost all records of prior MH's to 2003 due to a database merge. As such I am on my own to chase/trace wiring from the house batteries to the inverter or anything else. Thank you for your suggestions.
