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.

Temperature does play a big part in the efficiency of the fridge. The condenser at the back of the fridge needs cool air flow to allow gas vapour to be converted back into a liquid.again.

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.
