Looks like this was the issue...the fuse had no continuity. I am temporarily running a 10A glass fuse in place of it and it is working perfectly.

Any danger to the compressor in running a standard fuse instead?

Strange, we are an Engel dealer and I did not think they sell direct.

yes, but I would keep some spares just in case. The slow burn is less likely to burn on start-up.

Thanks, Christo. I do have a few spares on hand.

I am not sure about buying fridges on their site, but you can buy accessories for sure.

I just checked. Well, that is something new and I did not realize they were doing that now. Unfortunately for us that is what is happening all over the market. Makes one wonder why you are then a stocking dealer and absorb the shipping costs to get the inventory to your store.

Sorry to hear that, Christo. I could see where that could get very frustrating. If it's any consolation, I am thrilled with my Slee reservoir bracket and auxiliary lighting harness that I just installed!

Just as a follow-up to this thread...a 10-amp "temporary" fuse held up fine for 4 days in the desert and 5 days' in normal driving activity around town (fridge stayed nice and cold). The DC plug stayed solidly in place with the Blue Sea DC socket.

I am disappointed that Engel USA never called me back after I left a VM 2 weeks ago though.

Thanks for the help and advice, guys.
