I turn the fridge off for storage, however, I do keep the trailer pluged to power. The reason is that in storage the trailer is not level. We load at the house where I can have the trailer level and the fridge on the night before leaving.

Ditto! You don't want to leave the fridge closed and off as mold and mildew can develop. I thoroughly clean and disinfect mine, and leave open to air when in storage.

Off between trips. Rarely do back-to-back weekends so I turn it off and leave the doors open. I get it from the storage facility 48hrs before we leave and turn it on. Add cold beverages to it after 6-8 hours... Everything else about 24hrs out.

Leaving ours Off!

I'm having a problem with the Temp control in the bottom fridge sometimes it don't work the control is a wire connected to a plastic piece that fits on a fin. I don't know how it actually works but some time it don't . I move it around and it starts to work again, when it works it work very good!

I turn mine on 3 days before a trip and turn it off after we return home.

ON and loaded with the basics. The freezer.is always full. We just load up with the food we're going to eat for the week, and we're off! We keep our TT plugged in 24/7/365, but the refer is turned off in the winter.

Two days after each trip the fridge is emptied then cleaned thoroughly. I have the convenience of being able to plug in to a 30 amp receptacle on the outside of my shop so the fridge stays running on a low setting. Almost all the time there are canned drinks and freeze-pops in the unit for my grandson's, they know they are there and help themselves. In the warmer months, are there cooler months in S. GA.?, I also run the A/C set on 78. If I don't the inside of the TT gets hotter than outside air. A lot of the time, and I do mean "a lot of" the time the grandsons (ages 7 & 8) want to sleep in the TT when they stay over for a weekend. Fine with me.
