Is the new one hot after the fridge runs for a while? You could wire the volt meter at the fridge and watch what it does as the fridge cycles.. I have used sewing needles to pierce the insulation and get to the wires inside before, then you touch the voltmeter to the exposed needles. Just don't let them touch!
This is what I have:

The locking part has been solid. I've never had the plug wiggle loose, which has been an ongoing problem with both this truck and my last one.
I don't see an amperage rating on the site, but I thought it was 10 amps.
