Your RUA6408/8408 fridge is an absorption fridge which can operate on 240V, 12V and Gas.
It is important to note that the fridge is only designed to operate on 12V whilst connected to the tow vehicle or motorhome engine is running. They draw far too much current to be able to run off the house battery.
If your fridge is set to Automatic Energy Selector (AES) then it will automatically change to the most suitable power source using the following criteria:
- Connected to main power - 240V
- Connected to tow veh and D+ trigger wire senses power - 12V
- Neither of the above - Gas
Note that the fridge has a 20min delay between switching from 12V to gas. This safety feature prevents the fridge from trying to light on gas should you be filling up at a service station.
Should your fridge try and light on gas and the gas bottles have yet to be turned on, your fridge may go into error mode. To clear the fault, you need to hold down the centre knob for 4sec or until you hear one beep. Holding down longer than this one beep will result in the fridge turning off and will NOT clear the fault. Once the fault has been cleared, your fridge will try and find the appropriate source of energy following the criteria above.
Should you still be experiencing difficulty, please consult user manual or submit a request for our advisors to investigate further with you.
