Is it working when parked but it when moving? Take the cover off the back and check the burner for any foreign material.

In our Vista the run from the propane tank to the fridge is about 12 feet. If I just try and start it, it will click for about 30 seconds, then not try again. What I do is start one burner on the stove after I turn the propane on until I can get it lit, which is maybe 5-10 seconds and let it run for another 5 seconds. I then try and start the fridge again. This usually works for me.

In the Vista you can hear the spark trying to light the pilot/flame, and it will click maybe 8-10 times. If the flame sensor doesn't sense the flame, it shuts off the startup process.

Yours may be different, but I'd try that first.

You will likely need to take lots more time and give more details to get any reasonable answer if this is a question about the frig not working!

So far the solutions can range from things as simple as not turning it on or no propane to something which has actually failed but until we know what it did or did not do, the range of answers is too wide to even start!

Do you have the owners manual for the frig so that you are sure you are turning it on right?
Why no RV year, make and floorplan on MY signature as we suggest for others?
I currently DO NOT have one!

Without the make and model of your fridge we are playing a guessing game. When last did the propane burner light and operate? What has happened since then?
