Turn of the fridge breaker.

Your fridge may also have the option to shut it off inside the fridge. Might check the owners manual.

On yours if you turn off the inverter does it cut power to the refrigerator?

On our Maytag - there is a button, on the left, in the main compartment that shows temps. Hold that down and it should turn off.

I simply unplug it at the receptacle. My plug is easy access in a cabinet next to the refrigerator.

I turn off the breaker in the panel. I don't mess with the settings and so when I start up the settings were the same as I left them rather than fooling around to find the right temp setting.

I shut off the breaker and the inverter to minimize current draw since I only have 15 amps when home. No need for the inverter with the fridge off.

I store mine without AC and use dedicated battery maintainers to maintain the disconnected batteries. However, on the occasions I have needed to have it plugged in for other functions. I typically flip the breaker like others. I ALWAYS flip the water heater element breaker for storage anyway so its just one more.

If you need to keep the refrigerator circuit powered up because something else is on the circuit that you need to use, most of the refrigerators have a power off. My whirlpool powers off everything but the lights if I turn the cooling adjustment all the way down.

With turning it off by the front panel and throwing the breaker, make sure all doors stay open, turn off the ice maker, and I even remove the ice maker, dumping all ice, and put in the sink to drain.

The storing our RV, we turn off the fridge using the buttons inside the unit, turn the battery disconnect switches off, and it is not hooked up to electricity. Works every time.
