Residential Fridge shut down

Have a 2012 Canyon Star with the residential fridge with dedicated battery bank. I know I can disconnect my regular house batteries via the "store" switch on my electrical panel, but don't know how to shut down the dedicated battery bank when not using the RV.

I am thinking if you turn your inverter off, then your residential refrigerator cannot draw power from the battery bank.

It should be drawing current from the house batteries.

When you shut off the house battery switch doesn't the frig shut off as well?

If you do not see a battery cut-off switch for your residential fridge than shut off the inverter GFI power receptacle as Mike mentioned.
If you leave your coach plugged in at house or storage leave everything on so all your batteries will not lose their charge.
The Bird System maintains all your other house batteries and chassis batteries.

I went thru and checked the same questions with Newmar. The disconnect cuts off the chassis and two 6 volts coach battery under the hood. Turning off the inverter will disconnect the dedicated battery bank. I verified these items. Hopefully other coaches may be similar or the same.

Just another note, I was told the Generator battery uses the chassis battery. I have NOT verified this yet.
