I have a Norcold fridge on my 2011 unit. If i put the fridge on auto mode and it has all 3 sources available (gas, AC, DC), is there an order that it chooses from?

I assume it would choose AC first, then gas, then DC?

Yours is probably different since it's newer, but on mine, there's no auto cutover to any mode.  You must choose the mode manually, although it will run on either AC/DC/Propane.

Sorry, just saw you  did say you had an auto-mode.  I'd expect AC is the default, then gas, then DC as a last resort, although you may have to manually switch to DC.

Look for the model number, it might be on a sticker on the inside of the fridge.  Then you can look up the manual on Dometic's web site.  That will tell you the order.

If you search Norcold on the web it takes you to the Thetford site where there is a look up including RV friges.  It asks for the model number so you will need that.
 
Mine is a Dometic, so I can't help you.

Whoops, I said Dometic because that's what I have, meant Norcold.  :-)
