Dealing with a Faulty Fridge

Just like a traditional homestead, from time to time, things need be fixed or replaced.

Our RV is no different!

Yesterday, our fridge decided to start making a clicking noise. Usually, this particular sound tells me that it’s trying to switch over to propane. (our RV fridge has the ability to either work on electric or propane).

Since we are hooked up to shore power, there was no need for it to automatically switch over to propane.

We had electricity every else in the camper, so what could be causing this issue?

After some investigation, I checked the fuse box and reset all the switches. It seemed to work overnight – but by mid-morning, our refrigerator was once again making that clicking noise!

I decided to check with some fellow RVers to get their opinions… several thoughts focused on a fuse or the main board… both of which I know nothing about when it comes to replacing or fixing. Therefore, once I tried what I could, I reset everything. It seemed to be working, so I headed to bed!

However, during the night something woke me up! I heard a loud cracking noise coming from the fridge. I completely turned it off and waited for morning so I could call a Mobile RV Repair Person…

We’re in a remote area, so finding someone who will come out this far is daunting!

So, what will we do in the meantime?

Start eating everything before it goes bad!

Good thing we have a small under the counter model!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!


Wanting to travel, we left our traditional homestead behind... now we're obsessed with combining old fashioned skills, travel and healthy eating on the open road! Welcome to our homestead!

One thought on “Dealing with a Faulty Fridge

  1. Oh that would be horrible for me. Much anxiety because the way we eat is so difficult to maintain on the road. Of course if we were parked somewhere there was a store close that actually had food we could use it wouldn’t be so bad. But we’ve gone through pockets of the country where whole foods without artificial crap is hard to find for miles and miles. Hopefully your refrigerator is repaired soon!
