White Hawk Question

Hey everybody, I have a quick question regarding my 2015 White Hawk DSBH. Is there a hidden power switch for the refrigerator located in the front storage area? I searched the forum but did not find an answer.

Thanks for your time and help!!

Not exactly sure what you mean when you ask for a power switch. There is a temperature control on the back of the unit. If you're looking to shut it down completely, head for the electrical panel and power it down there.

I have the small box type fridge in the front. Located behind and on the bottom right corner of the fridge is a temp control knob. When rotating the knob full CCW you can hear a click which turns off the fridge.

I removed the fridge from our White Hawk and hooked it up in the man cave at home. Pretty much worthless in either place, but at least DW and I don't have to listen to it humming at night, as in the 27DSRL the BR is directly above the compartment holding the fridge. The storage room gained by the removal is much better for us than any possible benefits of the fridge.

Cheers,
Greg

Agree. Poor little fridge can't chill anything because in the basement location no way to dissipate the heat from the fridge in an already warm compartment......especially in summer. Haven't removed it from our 27DSRL yet but look forward to the additional storage space as well. Nice feature Jayco, execution? Not so much...........

Ditto, I did the same. Noise kept me awake, plus extra storage more useful than extra fridge. Now on to the removal of the sliding bed room doors!

OK some like and some don't but the small fridge works fine for us. I keep drinks in it for the most part. The model in my 2014 WH has the tstat control on the right side of the top all the way to the rear. I had to enlarge the access hole in order to reach it. Its pretty much a stick your arm in and adjust it by feel. Turn it all the way clockwise I think and it is off. My biggest issue with the mini fridge is getting it set right so it doesn't freeze the soft drinks. Don't turn it to max thinking it will cool faster. Do precool drinks etc in an ice chest and then put cold drinks in the fridge. If you load it up with a bunch of warm cans, it will take all night to cool them down.

If it dies I am undecided if I would replace it or just take advantage of the xtra storage.

I'm a fan of the fridge, too. I've never noticed any noise while sleeping and I'm on the same side of the bed directly above it. Maybe I lucked out by getting a nice, quiet compressor. Quite honestly, if the topic for discussion hadn't come up, I probably never would have given a second thought to any noise factor. It took a little time to find the sweet spot on the thermostat, but getting things cool enough hasn't been a problem, either. I've had beer freeze in it while dialing the temp in. My wife and kids refer to the fridge as "Dad's Medicine Cabinet" since Labatt Blue Light is the only thing allowed in it.
