    Hi,

    I was hoping someone could help me out. I have a ICECO JP40 refrigerator that will not power on via DC, but will work using my inverter ac outlet connected to my solar 12v battery. I’ve used a multimeter, and it reads ~12v at the battery, at the fuse block, at the wire connections to the socket, and the socket itself. If I plug the refrigerator into the van’s 12v socket the fridgerator will power on. Does anyone know what the difference could be between the 12v socket connected to my solar battery and the van’s socket connected to the van’s battery? Do I need to check the amps as well? Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    What DC voltage do you get from the battery at the fridge?
    My fridge needs 12.6 or more to work. Anything less and it won’t run.
    12.8 is fully charged.
    Also is the wire thick enough? If it’s too thin it wont carry enough power.
    What voltage do you get at the fridge when you turn it on? Does it drop a lot?
