Outside Kitchen refrigerator

Hello all, just brought home my new 8311ss and noticed the outside kitchen refrigerator runs while trailer is plugged in to house electric. I don't see a power shutoff anywhere. Has anyone located a shutoff or if there isn't one, has anyone added one? Thanks Gene

The fridge should have a temp control knob that should have an off position. If not check behind the fridge, there is a plug. Note my outside fridge is fastened to the floor and back wall of the kitchen.

No temp dial in this mini fridge, but I did find a access panel in the bunkhouse that gets me to the back of outside kitchen and unplugged fridge. Be nice to have a switch somewhere that I could use to power it on and off.

Should be easy enough to do, you can even split the duplex receptacle and put an On/Off switch on only one of the receptacles and leave the other hot.

Old Coot, the only thing I know about electric is, if I mess with electric I get shocked. Lol. I will have to get a buddy to do that for me. Thanks for the reply

Old Coot and Iwritecode. Can I just add a separate on off switch from the plug box? That way I could have the switch near the opening of the OK.

Yes, you can put in another box with the switch in it that controls 1/2 the duplex outlet or just add a switch/outlet box next to it.
