Jeff, you don't have your 'signature' info displayed so I don't know what type of motorhome you have, but FYI most modern ones leave the refrigerator 12V on
when you turn off the INSIDE battery disconnect switch. Your main battery disconnect switch in the Battery Bay turns off EVERYTHING. If you are concerned about battery drain, you could use that inside switch, assuming you have one. However, the refridgerator draws so little 12V power that you should be able to leave it on for days, if not weeks, assuming you have enough propane and your battery bank is in good condition.
