Hi @crazycamper, I'm quite a newbie too but from my own experience of having problems with the fridge (& getting them sorted), here's a few questions:

Was the fridge working before?
Is the M/H on hook-up?
- habitation power switched on?
- fridge power switched on?
If gas:
- gas connected & turned on?
- gas to fridge turned on?
- fridge switched on?
Fridge turned to correct selection or auto?

I'm a newbie and always will be. You never know it all.
Have been having exactly the same problem but I'm in Spain/Portugal, been pulling my hair out.
Mine does however power up every now and again, usually for just a couple of hrs and then power off for as much as 5 days then mysteriously fire up again.
So frustrating:mad:

If you getting 12 volts all the way to the control panel/PCB I have to agree with Silkcut1105 that it must be a fault on the board itself.

We have a dometic with aes, ( auto energy selection) circa 2012. When it failed it was the ribbon cable coming down from on/off button not properly seated onto the pcb inside black box at rear of fridge, accesable on ours through lower outside fridge vent. Had to remove black outer cover of pcb before I had access. The ribbon cable was grey, about 25mm ish wide if I remember ..... Good Luck

I don't know how long your trip is, but if all else fails you could get by with a Halfords-type 12v cooler box for the essentials, until your fridge is sorted.

Plug it into the cab socket when driving, and into the habitation area circuit when stopped. That's what we used when our Dometic refused to work on 12v for a while.

Keep the box and you could always flog it on eBay to get some money back when the fridge is fixed.

thanks to all, fridge now fixed
for some reason the fridge is connected to the back of the radio, or at least shares the power connection with inline fuse, COOL DAYS AHEAD
