i have just had my caravan serviced. the engineer said there was a problem with my fridge which is a RMS8551
Issue with fridge – when on 12v no amp change, disconnected 12v. fridge also trying to
Light gas when on 240v- turned gas off at manifold for fridge. Unable to light fridge on gas.
any ideas

Firstly the control on these is the 12 volt supply so if you have that disconnected this will cause you problems. Did the engineer tell you what or where the problem was?

Above is all that was said in his report one thing is that whilst away last time the sink over flowed and water got into the Pcb area thus i heard clicking onthe outside of the caravan which must of been the gas trying to ignite do you think the water has shorted out the pcb board

Yes that was going to be my conclusion but I wanted to be sure the engineer hadn't found an earth short somewhere else - Ian
