Exterior refrigerator. No on/off switch, no temp control

I can't find any switches or controls on my exterior refrigerator. It's 110 v only. Can't even get to the plug to unplug it unless I go inside and pull a drawer. Am I missing something?

Nope. Pretty much all are like that. Once you kill shore power, it's off, and of course back on once you plug back up. Should be able to access the plug somewhere. Might be behind an access panel or door.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Once you find the plug, you can always install a small inverter to run it while not on shore power.

I put an inline switch on the cord of my outside refrigerator. The cord is long enough so that I could pull enough cord out to install the switch.

Plug should be right behind your bottom draw.

Altho I find it hard to believe it's not entirely impossible that there's no on off temp switch.
I've not ever seen a fridge without one.
I've had two in my outside kitchen from forest river and they both had on / off temp switch.

The plug for the outside frig is behind the middle drawer on the inside side wall of the cabinet. To reach it, you have to remove the middle drawer which requires removing the screws from the drawer guldes, as the drawer is not removable otherwise. Not a user friendly setup, which is why I installed an inline switch on the power cord. This model frig does not have a temp control. Saves $$$$ that way.

Turn the temp knob counter clock wise until you will feel a "click" at the 12 o'clock position. The fridge is now off.

What temp knob? I'm telling you, no matter what the manual shows and no matter what controls others may have, my fridge has nothing. It's nutz.
