And I thought that was subtle.

Running a refrigerator during freezing temperatures is not a nice thing to do. It expects to cool and cannot heat. I always shut them down for the winter as there is no good reason to keep them working. If the temperature goes below 40, the reefer section will simply drop lower.

My advice is to shut it down and leave the doors open.

So after reading all the advice on here to shut the fridge down for the winter , I'm thinking to listen to what you're all saying and keep it off. If I go out there to do some work I'll just throw a six pack in a snow bank somewhere for a bit.

This is a residential refrigerator does that make a difference?

Phil I was also thinking say if it's close to 0* in the coach the fridge would almost have to run in reverse so to speak to keep things in there from freezing. Does that make sense ?

Actually no. An RV refrigerator uses a heating element to replace the propane heat when on shore power. I would never think of running anything like that all winter and in temperatures below 40! The residential has a regular compressor. Neither is designed to operate in temperatures below freezing.
