Norcold Refrigerator

Unread postby handyman on Thu Jul 20, 2017 7:38 pm

New here so I hope I'm doing this correctly. I have a Prolite Plus with a slide and cannot get my frig to operate on 12v. It works on 120 and gas but will not run off the battery. I checked battery and fully charged. Checked all fuses and they are ok. Plug on SUV is OK. Don't know what else I need to look at. Any suggestions would be helpful. Also made sure the SUV was running when I tried to run frig.

Thanks Handyman

Seems as if you have covered all the basis trying to find the 12V issue. Wiring is all good I assume?
I have deleted two duplicate posts and will run this thread.

Just finished talking to dealer for Prolite Trailers in N.S. Looks like the refrigerator does not get wired for 12v during manufacturing. Dealer gave me two options #1 drive with propane on and option #2 have the 12v hooked up. When I asked the cost to hook up the 12v dealer said that they never hooked 1 up before. Everyone uses propane. This is our 3rd trailer and the others we used the 12v, never propane. (any thoughts)

Solved.

They used to make 12V fridges but it seems now the new ones are only two way. Ours in our motor home is only 2 way as well.

We use A/C when plugged in and we use propane when driving and dry camping.

Works well that way and you should have no problems leaving it on propane when you travel.

Same here - we just leave it on 'Auto' and it fires up on propane when the 110 v is disconnected
