I have experienced the problem of dead chassis batteries after being plugged in at a site for a few days, resulting in the replacement of the solenoid and installing of the echo charger.

As a precaution, when my coach is in storage (with no plug-in), I disconnected the battery bank negative lead. Although this seemed to help with the residual draw from various electronics, I noticed that the refrigerator will continue to run (with the battery ground disconnected) until it is turned off. How is this possible?

Did it switch over to gas automatically?

As Audrey pointed out it will switch to propane automatically. You need to push the switch on the refrigerator panel to "OFF".
