Cool Couple minor issues?

Since removing my camper from winter storage (2012 318RKDS)I've not got 2 minor issues and another that has plagued me from day 1.

1. My fridge no longer correctly works. I've tried it 3 different times now and each time I run it everything automatically freezes regardless of the fridge setting. Is there a possible easy fix or a place to start looking as my nearest dealer is 100 miles away.

2. My outside radio also no longer works. The display works but there is no sound coming from my speakers and the outside display is fogged. Is it possible that moisture got in between their silicone seal? Is there a way to test the radio? If not, does someone know where to find a replacement. It's roughly a 2" round display.

3. My keyless entry has never worked since receiving my trailer. Does anyone have instructions on how to correctly configure the code? It also continually blows fuses, any ideas on what to look for?

-Thanks guys

1) Can't help you with the fridge... sorry.

2) My Voltage rig has toggle switches inside to turn on either the inside speakers in the garage, or the outside speakers. I know you don't have a garage, but any chance there's a similar toggle to turn the speakers on?

3) If it's made by RV Lock... can find info here: RV Lock Keyless Entry Remote | Trailers, 5th Wheel, Campers

Dunno Tom, I am under the impression that the RV Lock mechanism is battery operated so the fuse blowing shouldn't apply. There must be another type of keyless entry (fuse protected), we don't know of.

A possibility with the refrigerator may be the the thermocouple that controls the thermostat might not be making contact with the fins on the rear wall, inside, of refrigerator. If it's hanging loose it may not be getting an accurate reading and unable to tell the thermostat to shut down the flame. That condition would occur regardless of what mode is selected.

Agreed... I must've skipped right over the part about blowing fuses. DOH!
