Last Tiffin RED 2011 fridge was never turned off and neither is the one in our 2014 Phaeton. Always plugged in and ready to go stocked. I have never turned off the fridge at home when gone either .

Smile Fridge switch

We have a 2015 Bounder 35K with the same fridge, I use the REF circuit breaker in the house ac breaker box to cut it off. No power moves to it once it is cut off. Hope this helps!

I can't remember the buttons without looking at it, but I think it's the icemaker button and the button to the right of the ice button. Press and hold them both at the same time and it will turn the fridge off. The lights will still work but the compressor will not come on.

Yeah, but if you winterize your RV you should turn the refrigerator off. They are not designed to run below 60 degrees ambient and sitting in a 20 degree MH can cause problems.

Our fridge will turn off with the thermostat turned to "0". But the interior light would stay on when we propped the door open to "air it out". Made a small tab that is screwed into the plastic housing next to the door switch that we then pivot over the switch to hold the switch closed when the door is propped open. Refer OFF and light OFF. We have same issue with flipping breaker, it's inconvenient to get to.

I recently installed a Samsung in our coach and discovered the same problem. My fix was simple - I bought a heavy duty outdoor rated remote controlled outlet, like the kind you would use for Christmas lights. I velcroed the remote button under a galley cabinet where it is hidden from view. Turning the fridge on/off is now a non-issue.
