Refrigerator won't turn off?

We recently bought a Venetian. I turned off the House Power switch and also turned the chassis batteries to the OFF position. However, my refrigerator is still running, and the clock on the microwave is still on.
Not sure if we missed a step, but it seems strange these would still be on.

Are you plugged in to SP? Those switches are to disconnect the batteries - they have nothing to do with the 120 VAC appliances like the fridge and microwave.


BUT: if you are not plugged into SP and your inverter is ON, it supplies 120 VAC to at least the fridge, but your microwave may also be on that circuit. The battery disconnect does not disconnect the inverter - it has its own ON/OFF switch.

Turn off the switch on the inverter itself. Turning off the switch on the control panel doesn’t completely power off the inverter. Once the inverter switch is turned off you have complete control from the interior control panel.

Looks as if I can turn off the inverter at the Control Panel. But there is probably an ON/OFF switch at the inverter as well. I will check it out; THANKS!
