How does everyone else deal with this?
You can put a few pieces of charcoal in a disposable dish rag inside. It worked well for storing our refrigerator for 4 year while we were in Germany. No mold etc.

We just got a new 5th wheel with an outside kitchen. The refrigerator didn't have any controls on the inside. I loosened the tie down brackets to check out the back side and low and behold there was the controls. Top right corner just below the top. The top of the fridge is above eye level. Hope this helps.

To answer your question about what to do with the fridge if you turn it off, here is what I do. Take a pool noodle, cut it down to 6" tall, sliced it open on one side (think Pac Man). I open the fridge, slide it over the side wall of the fridge (I had to do some carving of the noodle), then close the door. This keeps the door slightly cracked open when it is off and I can still use the factory strap to keep if from moving around. It has worked well for me and I haven't had any issues with mold.

I disconnect my battery while plugged in at home(water tends to evaporate) plus it doesn't take very long to charge the battery. Connect it the day before you leave.

Solar

Disconnect the batteries from the trailer, and attach a small solar panel for each. It won't charge the battery, but it will keep it charged. I used this on a truck I seldom drove, and the battery lasted 10 years.

One benefit of the trailer sitting in the driveway... Used the canopies for shade yesterday morning to cook some breakfast tacos on my new gas griddle!

Nice Griddle!

Thats a great looking griddle you have there.... I have the 36" Black Stone Griddle at home and love it.... Im thinking that little guy you have would be perfect for the TT.

Do you love it?

Oh yeah it's great. I just ordered a Camp Chef griddle... It's a big 31" griddle. This one is 17" and perfect for camping in my opinion.

I just ordered an 8' hose to hook up to the quick connects on the camper. Should be a great accessory!

We usually go camping with other families and you can't beat a gas griddle when cooking for large groups. Can cook bacon, sausage, eggs and potatoes all at the same time using the larger griddles.

An electrician friend of mine says it's not good to use a breaker for a switch. Flipping it on and off all the time weakens the mechanism.

Any other thoughts?

I found that if I turn the temp knob on the fridge past 0 it will shut off actually. The first time it took a little effort and thought it might actually break, but now it's fine.
