OK, This is where the model number comes in so we know exactly which fridge you have.
The newer fridges require 12 volts DC power to run on LP gas mode. While the gas provides the heat to make the fridge boiler work, they use 12 volts DC from the camper battery to run the controls on the fridge for both electric mode and LP gas mode. Just when on electric, it does not use LP gas, it runs an electric heating element to run the boiler area in place of the gas burner.
To run with no 120 VAC shore power available, you need a well charged 12 volt battery on the camper and it will run a good long time on gas. When you plug into 120 VAC shore power, the onboard power converter creates all the needed 12 volts DC to run the fridge so it can run with or without a battery.
This much I can say not knowing the model number, if in times past you ran on gas mode and never had to light a gas pilot light on the fridge, just turned the button on for LP gas mode and it worked, then the fridge uses 12 volts DC to run the controls, gas valve and gas igniter. If you had to light a pilot light or snap a gas lighter to get the fridge going, then you would have one of the older all gas fridges and may not need the 12 volt battery.
With yours being an 2000 Sunline, it might be new enough to have a RM2652 Dometic fridge in it. And if so, that model requires the 12 volts DC from the battery.
Does this help explain why your fridge was not working on gas mode?
