I can light the burner but it goes out in a few minutes. This is repetative. I can always light it but the burner always goes out after a few minutes. Runs fine on AC. I don't know if any attempts have been made by the prior owner to correct this. None have been made by me.

I have to ask, what is idle mode? I've never seen one that runs on idle mode, in a RV in 15 years. Has anyone used a manometer and tested Inches of water column in propane supply to fridge, as well as other appliances? Any I've seen run on propane, are either on, (flame present, or off, no flame present.) Flame goes out completely when not calling for cool.
Check when you turn the control knob inside the fridge side that there is some form of resistance or at least a sweeping sound. The knob will always stop at both extremes but very often the linkage can come loose leaving all the cool air above in the freezer. if you can unplug the fridge and listen very closely to see if the deflection door is indeed moving. If you can get the cover off, grab your surgeons cap, a flash light and a long pair of needlenose pliers you may be able to clip the link back in place. Good Luck,Dana
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.
After running out of propane light the other appliances first to get the majority of air out of the system, such as your stove top burners. Then push and hold the manual button for a few minutes to purge air out then try to light the pilot.
Your voltage supply is being interrupted. The DC voltage needs to be at least 10.5 to work properly. If you are switching from shore to gen this can cause the interuption also. I presume the gas supply is staying on when you are traveling.
