Our 385 has an Isotherm refrigerator which is no longer working.  Can anyone advise a) how I troubleshoot the problem and b) how I access the compressor and electronic unit, which are at the bottom of the fridge, outboard, just forward of the cooker, and very inaccessible?

Thanks,

Gordon

Mine has stopped three times (in a ten year period) - and in every case it was a poor earth/return connection. It's a bit of mucking around but the first thing to try is to see if 12 volts is arriving at the fridge - you a multimeter with the black probe connected directly to the negative post on the battery.

If you have 12+ volts at the fridge input (which I did) then the next thing I did was to link the negative terminal on the fridge to the negative post on the battery - the fridge immediately started running again.
