Norcold 260.3 AC works great! Tried propane mode and pilot goes out when I release the safety button. I have gas at stove. I have the owners and service manuals. I have the pup set up in my yard-- could it be that the camper must be more level? Are Norcold fridge's that temperamental? Could it be thermocouple? Are there obvious troubleshooting steps to try first?

Make sure AC and DC modes are in OFF position and propane is the MAX. Try holding down the igniter for a 5 count and try again.

Thanks Steve. On this model, when I choose gas on the dial, the other ones are off (I assume). Tried many times. The pilot stays on only about 5 seconds after I release the safety button.

A universal thermocouple you can buy for <$10 might work in that unit. I'd try that 1st.
I have a norcold that I am scrapping so if you find it is the gas valve or something let me know and I'll salvage it for you.

Thomas - Did you get this fixed? I have the same issue. Let me know what you determined was the issue.
