How do you disconnect residential fridge

I have a 2015 34.5 Miramar and haven't figured out how to turn off the residential fridge without unplugging the motor home. Does anyone know where the plug is.

If there is no 'off' control on the temperature setting - next simplest would be to turn off that circuit breaker at the RV distribution panel - it should be on its own circuit.

I expect it is plugged in behind the unit - as any residential fridge would be at home... Whether that is in some easy way accessible to you on your model without moving the fridge I'll leave to someone else that has the same rig or knowledge...

when you turn the battery switch to store it turns off the fridge.

"how to turn off the residential fridge without unplugging the motor home"

The question is about a residential fridge - same as in your sticks/bricks house. No connection to any 12v systems.

An 'RV Fridge' - capable of running on 110/propane - also would remain on (if switched on at fridge control panel) while plugged in to shore power - regardless of the position of the use/store switch... The converter supplies 12v to the rig while plugged in - it doesn't need the batteries.

my coach has a switch for the house batteries above the door. When I am not using the coach I switch it from use to store and it shuts off the fridge.

My guess would be, its on its own 15 amp circuit, and if that's true there will be a dedicated breaker you can turn off to kill the refrigerator, as already suggested.
