GraniteStaters Posted May 30, 2021 Share Posted May 30, 2021 We were traveling with our Norcold 4.5 refrigerator on Auto. We had the LP off and were running on DC. We check this too by pressing the mode button and the LED illuminates showing DC. When we got to the campground where we don’t have shore power we turned on the LP. I checked the stove at some point and turned on the Truma outside and the at the remote inside. After a few hours I happen to check the VictronConnect Smart Battery Shunt numbers using my iPhone and Bluetooth and discovered extraordinary draw. I immediately checked the refrigerator by pressing the mode button and confirmed it was on DC. Several iterations of this with the Norcold setting of Auto always showed DC when I pressed the mode button. I finally changed to manual LP and the LED F was displayed indicating an LP issue. I couldn’t understand why the stove and Truma would work and the Norcold had a code, but power cycling the refrigerator after relighting the stove for one more check resolved the issue. I suspect the code was suppressed by the Auto setting on the refrigerator. My warning is to not trust the Auto setting without checking the actual operation by pressing mode or setting to the desired setting manually. 3 David Caswell and Paula Saltmarsh Hull 509 "The Swallow" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
