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.

The part you are looking for is the thermo couple. It senses the heat from the flame and holds the gas valve open. The clicking will try three times and then go into lock out. You then will need to reset on the front of the fridge. When installing the thermo couple do not over tighten.

It is key that all control switches are in the correct position, depending on what power source you are using, gas, electric, etc. If the switches are not in the proper setting, the unit will not operate.
Here's the manual for your fridge that should be printed out for your use and reference (and reading enjoyment). It has all the info needed to operate and troubleshoot it.
Typically, when using any gas appliance with a pilot light, the sensor has to first be hot enough to trigger it to allow the safety gas shutoff to open and allow the gas to flow to the pilot/burner. Follow the instructions and you should be all set.
Hope you find this helpful and best regards!

Sorry woodchuck789 Rank: Guru. The Dometic RM2201 does not have any of these things; vent(damper), fan in the freezer, auto defrost, defrost timer, defrost heater, or a defrost thermostat.
mickamoose, Most likely the camper is not sitting level. It needs gravity to work correctly. The fins in the back of the refrigerator get cooling from the refrigerant leaving the freezer compartment. If all else fails, leave to freezer compartment door open inside the refrigerator. Parts for this unit are getting hard to find and these RM2201 refrigerators will never work as well as the one in your house. One alternative is to replace the refrigerator with a dorm or office type refrigerator. They are cheep and work well except only on 115 Volts AC.
