When I started the fridge on our 2016 RP180 this spring it came up on propane with the temp indicator on high and none of the buttons function to change to electric, battery, or temp change.  The fridge cools normally and, when I ran out of propane the warning indicator flashed.  Everything was working when I winterized the trailer last fall.  I suspect the eyebrow controller board is bad.  Is there any way to test this board before I go out and purchase a new one?  Any suggestions?

Issue was resolved with new eye-brow board.

The control board in the top front of the fridge.. the eyebrow.

Well, having just re-started our fridge after the winter shutdown the 120V mode indicated malfunction and re-setting a tripped GFI solved the issue.  If I had not already heard about this GFI/Fridge linked issue I don't know that I would have been this quick in resolving it.  Shared knowledge is a great aspect of these forums!
