Question about Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator
New fridge with intake and exhaust hoses. May work well for 12 hours and simply shut off, or 45 mins and shut off. Very unpredictable on propane. Could wind backdraft through the hose and cause this problem? Other suggestions?
Check LP pressure regulator and gas supply make sure LP lines are clean not clogged with cobwebs

Most likely your heating element burned out or else the circuit board is bad. To test the heating element unplug it from the circuit board (j6 and j7 usually gold colored) take the two heating element wires and using an ohm meter make sure there is no resistance between them, if there is resistance the heating element is bad, Or can just put a plug onto the heating element and plug it into a 110 wall outlet and see if it gets hot. If it is not the heating element it is most likely the main circuit board. (between 1993-1996 dometic used a yellow epoxy filled circuit board that went out pretty quickly) if you have the yellow filled circuit board rather than the green one it is most likly the circuit board

A bit more info is needed. What model #, and how old is it? In back, does it have a computer board (underneath a green or black plastic cover, appros 4" x 6")? Im guessing that it does, ('cause you get an error message,) Make sure that you have a good 12 volts going to the board at all times, and make sure that the glass fuses on the board are not blown. If that checks out, than its a real good bet the you have a defective board. For Americana models, you're going to need a Dometic board, and for other models, an aftermarket board will usually do. Althoiugh the OEM ones have a better chance of fixing your problem.

Check any fuses/circuit breakers in harness from battery. That battery should supply 12 volts dc to fridge lugs/terminals at bottom of fridge on outside behind vent.
If battery is good and hooked up properly but no 12 volts to fridge, then you will have to trace back to battery for broken /bad wire. If you want to test quickly, just run 2 jumper wires from battery to those 2 lugs marked + and - Battery + to + (pos)at fridge, and - battery to -Neg at fridge. That should allow you to run it on propane or 12 volt. Remember, running it on 12 volts will kill that battery pretty quick, unless it's being charged. When you are plugged in, the converter supplies the 12 volts to your fridge, as well as should be charging your battery.
