If the compressor doesn't run, it is likely that the defrost timer is malfunctioning. This part is located near the compressor. To test the defrost timer:
Step 2: Disconnect the wires from the timer and timer motor. Remove the timer from its brackets by backing out two retaining screws.
Step 3: Test the defrost timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Clip one probe of the VOM to each defrost timer -- not motor -- wire, and turn the timer control screw shaft until it clicks. If the defrost timer is functioning, the meter will read zero. If the needle jumps, the defrost timer is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type.
Step 4: Connect the new defrost timer the same way the old one was connected.
To check the defrost timer motor, clip one probe of the VOM to each motor wire, setting the scale to RX100. If the meter reads between about 500 and 3,000 ohms, the motor is functioning properly. If the meter reads higher than 3,000 ohms, the timer motor is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new motor the same way the old one was connected.

Check your 5 amp fuse on the control board on the outside of the trailer where the condensate drain comes out of the side of the r.v. -- while you're at it, check the 3 amp fuse also.

I have had this problem also. My experience has been that the propane line to the frig has air in it, especially after not being used for a while. Here's what I do:
1) Make sure the propane tank valve is open.
2) Light one of the burners on the stove. This may take a while but keep the gas on and a lighter at the burner. This is safe becuase as the air purges from the line it just blows the flame (from the ligher) around. Then when the air is purged the gas lights. Let the burner run for a couple of minutes. This sounds a bit odd, but what you are doing is bringing the "gas" close to the frig. The frig does not have to purge all that air as you have already done most of the purging by getting the burner to light. The facory setting for the frig is to stop trying to light after 45 seconds, and the "Check" light comes on.
3) Now try the frig. It may a couple times, but it should light and work fine.
I have found that this technique also helps with lighting the hot water.
