    I just got a 2016 T680 with fridge. How did you power on. I tried the knob but Nothing happened I noticed there was a fuse and a connector but no clue where they suppose to be or maybe is just replacements. Please help. Thank you

    Most fridge's will shut down if the truck voltage is below a certain point. Try running the truck and see if the fridge starts.

    The switch for mine is in the sleeper with all the other switches. It looks like a bottle, with a snow flake on it. Once you push that switch it should come on. It will also light up green on the dash when the switch is on but the engine isn't running, or so it does on mine.

    I'm fortunate. My truck has an epu unit, I have noticed however that when the truck isn't running the fridge doesn't get as cold. But I've left mine on for three days now and no issues starting the truck. It definitely doesn't consume as much power though when the truck itself isn't running. Keeps everything cool, just not as cold as it would otherwise.

    Is it possible that your shutting the truck down, and the sleeper temperature is rising with the sun shining in and the refrigerator can't keep up as well with the higher ambient temperature?
