Question Dometic Americana refrigerator Question

We have a Dometic refrigerator in our Motor home that automatically uses the electric if it is available instead of gas. In our former camper, the fridge had a switch that I could use to set it to use just propane instead of electric.

I just installed a 'smart start' on one of my AC units that would allow me to run it with my little EU2000 generator, see post:

What size Air Conditioners do I have?

If I am using the Honda to run the AC, I want the fridge to run only on gas. Is there any way to do this?

Unplug the 120v power supply, to the fridge at the back , or flip the circuit breaker, fridge may be a dedicated circuit.
