40amp Breakers

Hi everyone, Could someone explain to me what a 40 amp breaker inside the chaise on the back of the firewall of a chevy Jamboree is used for. My coach batteries are being drained since we replaced our refridgerator with a new one. We disconnected the heater wire and light in the fridge that someone told us to do but it is still draining our battery even when it is plugged into our house all weekend. We replace all of our batteries and now I am wondering about these 40 amp breakers inside the chaise on the firewall. What are they for can anyone help me? Thank you

If your batteries are draining, when you are plugged into power, you have issues other than a draw.

I'm assuming this breaker is a 12volt item ; have you tried disconnecting it and seeing what doesn't work.
Have you tested for volts at the batteries when plugged into power, if the convertor/charger is working properly you should see 13.5 to 14 volts at the batteries.
