We have tried this ONCE w/our main fridge.
Background info: We always turn on the fridge the night before we depart. This pre-cools the fridge/freezer so when we pack it is at temperature. We leave it on propane while traveling.
Our usual routine has us empty the fridge when we get home and of course shut it off. I usually go in there the next day and wipe out all the remaining water from the freezer to keep it from rusting.
One time I figured we could shut the fridge off a couple hours before arriving home so that I could dry it out after it is emptied to save a trip the next day. What we found was that the fridge and food had moisture all over it. The food was cold but everything was wet. The Mrs. didn't care much for that.
