The power board is faulty and that needs to be replaced.The whole fridge is not faulty its the fault of board.But before replacing the board check this 
Have you checked there is enough gas in the unit ? Yes - continue 

Have you checked that the gas bottle is turned on? Yes - continue

Have you checked whether there is an internal gas **** that feeds the refrigerator? Typically the gas **** is in a cupboard near the refrigerator.

Is the igniter sparking? If no it needs to be checked and replaced.If  Yes - continue 

There may be a blockage in the gas lines or a sensor is malfunctioning in which case it may need factory repairs or replacement.
But if all the possibilities checked out OK then the board needs replacement.
For getting parts for your fridge you can get it from the above link
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

you may have a bad board, but we can check a few things first.... first off, on the back of the fridge, should see the control board, remove the black cover from it and towards the right of the board, should have 2 fuses, often covered in a blue plastic sleeve or something.. check both these fuses are good.. if they check out you are going to need a test light.. if you dont have one, can get one from auto part store cheap... need to first see if getting voltage to the gas valve and if the gas valve is even opening.... does yours have the 12v element option? can tell by looking at the back, on the right hand side where the burner is.. above that, should see the 110 element.. if there are 2 elements, then you have a 12v element too.... let me know if you have the 12v element option... also, check the fuses.. then check for power to the gas valve... byusing a test light, turning it onto gas and seeing it it gets power.. it will only have power for a short while as it tries to light, then will shut down.. so may want someone inside to turn it on for you..... also try unplugging the electrode wire from the board and then plugging it back up.... sometimes these can get a little dirty... since you have no spark at all... you can try using a screw driver and holding it over the connectore on the board for the electrode wire, see if it sparks to that.. however, make sure you have a good plastic handle and wear gloves, else it will knock your socks off if it gets you...

We need the owners manual for 2005 Gulfstream Conquest Limited. Where do we download?

Here's a link to the Gulfstream Motor home manual. It's much the same as the one I have for my 1998 RV. Very generic and not much use. Owner Manuals You'd be better informed if you go through the RV and write down every make and model of every component you find. Then spend time on Google and you'll find manuals, troubleshooting and parts lists for most everything installed in your RV.

Burner lites but goes out after 2 or 3 min.

the white rodgers gas control needs to be replaced;
the way it works is: the thermocouple opens the pilot gas circuit and, holds it open
when it heats up by creating a magnetic field in the gas control then: when you turn
the knob on the gas control to "on" a valve inside the gas valve opens the main gas circuit and, electricity supplied by your RV keeps it open.
the main gas coil inside the gas valve is defective and, can not hold the main gas circuit to the burner open anymore.
