Residential Refrigerator - on or off

I have a residential refrigerator in my coach and was wondering if I should shut it off completely for the winter or just leave it running. The coach is parked on my driveway and is plugged in 24/7.
Thanks

There is no reason to leave it running if you don't need it. But there is no harm in doing so other than using electricity.

If you do shut the fridge down remember to prop the doors open a bit to prevent a musty odor in the spring.

we shut down our second fridge in the basement at home when not using it, why spend the $$$ on the energy. Doesnt' hurt the unit.
