The battery monitor is showing full charge.
This sheds a little light on the subject. Depending on how it's wired, by pulling the charge module off the converter you could be disconnecting the 12 volt power to the fridge when on battery power. I agree that it would be weird, but I've seen some weird things in RV's before.

The module came off the circuit board in Battery Control Center. I haven't touched the converter in the rear of the unit.

Sorry, I said converter, but that's not what I meant.

It's been 4 days with shoreline only...no noticeable downsides.

Newbie here, prepping for the next trip in two days, swung by the storage lot, topped off air in the tires, turned on the propane, put the fridge on auto so it would be ready for groceries the next day, then..... turned off the battery switch on my way out.... doh! When we went to load the freezer today, had a moment of that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, considering a two week trip using wet ice, then sigh of relief when I realized what I had done. Oh well. Live and learn.
