    When you use Electric does anything at all happen? Do you hear any noise at all? Or is it totally dead? There is a switch or knob that switches it from Propane to Electric. It can also have a neutral position. Check that. Also check your breakers.

    Sometimes on those gas type fridges the stuff in the lines gets in the wrong spots. You have to take it out and turn it upside down and let it sit like that for a while. Sounds crazy but it can work as a last resort.

    Ya turn it upside down for 24 hours and then right side up and let it sit for another 24 hours before you try it again. But that's only if it turns on, but doesn't get cold. Turning it upside down gets all the bubbles in the coolant out...

    My dad told me about the upside down trick before. We tried it on a propane fridge out of a trailer some years ago. Let it sit upside down for about a day or two, put it back, right side up, hooked it up, and it was cold inside within a couple hours. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Maybe not guaranteed to work, but worth a try if it's not working at all the way it is now.

    have you made sure there wasn't anything in the burner area? (Spider webs, etc.)

    Have you taken the panel off on the outside of the trailer and taken a look at what your switches are doing? A lot of the time the switches inside the fridge can break and you have to light them manually from the outside of the trailer. I've owned a few different TTs and each one had it's own little fridge quirk.
