power on w/res refr off?

Recently purchased Arctic Wolf 285 fiver. It has residential refr. I want to store it for 3 months with refr OFF. If it is plugged into my 30Amp house current the refr is always on. If I unplug, my battery goes dead. Is there a solution other than solar panel or trickle charger for battery? If inverter is on, so is refr. No off switch for LG refer. Thanks.

Yes, turn off your inverter and find the breaker in your breaker panel that is labeled fridge or fridge/inverter and turn it off. This will turn off your fridge.

My inverter has an on/off switch on the front panel. Some units have a remote on/off switch inside their unit usually in the command center cabinet where switched are located.

I generated a little sketch to show when fridge will be on or off. The brkr panel is the breaker for the fridge.

With no 120 power need to also disconnect battery to eliminate parasitic loads. The switch that came with unit did not totally disconnect. I added switches at each of my 2 batteries.

I guess I understood he has shore power at home and will keep it plugged in but was wondering how to get fridge off. That is what I posted for above.

You are right though if he just wants to store it dead then he will need to do what you suggested to keep his batteries from draining..
