heated seal on fridge

I took my TT to dealer to fix my concertone and a few other thing like a leaking air bed , battery dieing in a few day , slide out bolts breaking , well on the battery thing the service guy told me there is a switch on the fridge that turns on a heater for the seal so it dont sweat in humid weather and it can draw a lot of juice from the battery . Did anyone else know their fridge had this switch it is located under the bottom lip of freezer inside the refridgerator compartment i didnt know it and no one ever said anything about it

mine stays on all the time, it really does help stave off condensation

but if you store the rv, shutting OFF the fridge is supposed to kill the power to it. but these days anything can happen and i would do a sanity check when you shut down and flip it to the OFF position just to be sure

Yes. Most new RV fridges have those heaters/switches. It's true...they are a battery drain.
