Magic Chef Model WD-127FDC

After speaking with the Manufacturer of this 12V refrigerator they recommended that if I am storing my trailer for any light if time I can do one of two things, 1) Battery disconnect or 2) Pull fuse from the panel.
This model is hard-wired into the trailer with no On/Off switch.
My question - what are most of you doing? Will I overcharge the house batteries if plugged into shore power? There is no transfer switch in this Geo Pro from what I've been told by dealer.

I leave my trailer plugged into shore power (15amp) when I'm home. (Habit from having Class As).
Thank you,
Amy

There's no on/off switch? What a huge oversight in an RV fridge! If it were me, I'd wire in an on/off switch on the positive power lead, with the switch right next to the fridge.

Though, now that I'm thinking about it, are you sure you can't turn the compressor off? In mine (a garbage Furrion), the compressor can be turned off when the dial is spun all the way left, but the light still turns on when the door is opened. As long as the door remains closed, the light doesn't turn on.

As long as your trailer's charger is working properly, it won't overcharge the batteries when plugged into shore power.

Press and hold the set button for cooling temp for 10 secs. It will shut off. If you trip power, or go from shore to battery etc it will turn back on. At least this works for our Dometic in our Roo. It's the same control panel so give it a whirl.
