Still gives me the error message. I’m thinking now maybe the inverter or maybe there is another gfi circuit I’m unaware of.
Any ideas of where the inverter is located or another gfi? -Thanks
First off Doug, this is a 9 year old thread, several of those folks have moved on, so may want to start a new one.
There's more information we need to accurately answer you're questions.
You stated the fridge is a Norcold which is either LP powered or 120 volts AC from shore cord but needs strong 12 volt DC from your batteries to power up the control circuits. Which means that you have a converter not an inverter.
A converter uses 120 volt AC to provide 12 volt DC to power the lights, furnace fan, exhaust vents, slide pumps/motors & to power fridge & water heater controls.
An inverter uses your 12 volt AC batteries to provide 120 volt AC to usually a residential fridge & possibly a couple plugs.
If your fridge is giving a "lo dc" warning it's due to the batteries, either not charged, weak, need replaced or loose connections.
