    Your question lacks a little substance. It would seem buy your description you have a Coleman Thermoelectric fridge where a 3 way fridge used to reside. If this is true you need to be on shore power to operate it as it will drain your 12v system rapidly. IMO those are not a good fridge to store food in they only cool 20 degrees below the ambient temperature. If it is just setting in the old fridge location pull it out and use the space for something usable.[2C]

    If looking for the outlet, try the outside aluminium door. If its a 3 way fridge the outlet could be there. It is on mine. Same year diffrent model.

    I dont know , the sedona is much smaller then mine. Is it a 3 way fridge? If so i would think the plug is on the outside. My switch for ac/dc/propane is also in that spot. I wouldent think they would make them very diffent in the same year, but who knows. Someone could have moved the wire also? Is this a new pop up to you?

    The refrigerator was optional on yours, i just happen to have the original paperwork and brochures. So , it could have been added later or the same as mine.

    If it isn't working, check the GFCI outlet in the kitchen area. We have a 1999 Coleman Nevada, and if the GFCI trips, the fridge won't work on shore power.

    The GFCI should have two buttons on the front between the two outlets, one labeled "Test," and the other, "Reset." "Test" will force the GFCI to trip, cutting off output power. "Reset" does precisely that - it resets the tripped GFCI and restores power to outlets.

    In our trailers, it's not a logical step to think of the fridge not working because of the GFCI. We normally only think of the outlet affecting something actually plugged into it, but the AC to the fridge is hooked onto the backside of the outlet, so if the GFCI trips, it also cuts AC power to the fridge.

    In the same compartment , outside the pup, where the plug is are controlls. There should be a knob there it says something like dc( battery power) ac ( outlet power) and gas ( propane). Check the outlet with a tester or lamp to see if it works. If covering the campers roof with a tarp, make sure there is an air gap between the tarp and the roof. Or get a breathable pop up cover. Tarps are supost to be bad for the roof. Good luck and have fun.
