Last couple of trips out I have had issues Gas won't light from auto selection but will from manual but only run for short time then light flashes. On EHU freezer is working but the fridge doesn't seem to be cooling Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated I have Dometic RM 7605 L model think its the original on my 2004 Frankia. Has anyone replaced theirs if so with what make and model

The gas could be just the jet, burner & chimney need a good clean or or the flame failure thermocouple also could be the gas valve playing up worse case it's the electronics controlling it.
I would start with a good clean and replace the jet & thermocouple.

The freezer working OK and the fridge not is due to the thermal paste behind the fins drying out. The rubbish Dometic use drys out in 3 to 4 years. A cheap & easy fix replace it with heat sink compound.

This works well, you will need two to three tubes to do both fridge & freezer.
