First off, don't trust the tank gages. They are infamously unreliable. Some on this forum have reported success dripping oil on the shaft above the outer sheath. Let the oil run down as you try and...

Don't remove the baffle. It is there for a purpose. Aids in convection moving air up over the cooling unit on the back of the fridge. Fins frosting over aren't a bad thing as long as it doesn't...

dieselguy, I'm getting pretty similar to what you are. The CPRR was a pretty good test for the fridge this year with heat and humidity similar to what you are having. My fridge is not in a slide, so...

The contractor did you a favor sloping the pad. Less chance for water to stand on it and freeze. Like others have said, you have to level the rig anyway.

I'm not familiar with the Norcold but assume it is similar to the Dometic. You must have 12vdc at the control board even if you are running it in AC mode. That's where I'd start.

If it isn't working none of the downstream protected plugs will work. The GFCI will only reset if the line into the plug is hot or energized.
