Yah, I tested the element disconnected. I went through all the connections and everything looked fine.

I however did find the issue. The house outlet I was using I thought was a 20 amp but it turned out to be a 15 amp GFI breaker (outdoor socket). After keeping the shore line plugged into that I then plugged the fridge into a outlet on a standard 20 amp breaker and its working fine.

I swear I had tested different outlets before but either way everything seems to working as should.

I appreciate everyones help and I have learned a lot with your assistance.

Thanks again and safe travels,
Forrest

I have seen elements trip a gfi when cold, then work fine after heated by the lp flame. Not sure if it was a bit of moisture inside the element leaking just enough current to trip a gfi.
