Your refrigerant may have completely separated in the system. Shut of the gas, disconnect the electrical and remove refrigerator from the coach or if you have sufficient room inside set it on a clean area. This operation is what is called burping the system.
1. From the base roll it onto the door and wait five minutes.
2. roll it onto the top and wait five minutes.
3. Roll it on the back and wait five minutes.
4. Return it to the base and wait five minutes.
Reinstall it or test it on electrical. It should show signs of cooling in about 30 minutes in the freezer compartment if the system is not plugged in the boiler.

Replace the bulb and also check the relay and the sensor in the back of the unit. But first try replacing the bulb

Check the burner assembly. 1 screw, remove the sheet metal cover and clean it. The burner collects rust. This is the likely. Other issues would be the gas pressure usually checked with a manometer. Should 11" of water column. If your furnace works good then the gas pressure is probably ok. Also could have a faulty ignitor which sends a miliamp signal back to the circuit board. Check the burner first, after that leave the cover off and turn the fridge on. Watch the ingnitor attempt to lite the burner. Be sure the spark is going to the burner and not shorting out on the sheet metal it is mounted in. If it is shorting to the frame the ignitor needs replacing.
Thanks for using Fixya

More that likely the control board has gone bad or the thermostat quit working. You might have to try and light this on gas several times to finally get it to go, if there is any air in the line it won't light and the air must be purged. This can take several minutes of continious trying to get it to light. When it kicks off switch from gas to off and back to gas again till it lights. Have you checked the thermocouple that lets the control board know that there is fire in the pilot? If this is bad it won;t kick the main gas valve on. You can check these with a volt ohm meter, when there is fire on the thermocoule you will get a small voltage reading in the mil amps portion on the tester, no reading means bad thermocouple.
When you say failed, what all happened, are the lights on the fridge indicating electric or gas working? Is it just not cooling? Have you hecked for power to the control board on the fridge? There should be a wire diagram on the cover for the board on the back of the fridge, check to see if you have power coming in to the unit, if not check your fuses.
