Refrigerator on or off?

I have a new Precept with a Norcold 121 series refrigerator/freezer.

In a short term storage scenario (1 month before next trip), having switched off the battery disconnect and turned off the LP tank, should the refrigerator be switched to "OFF" or does it not matter since all power sources are unavailable?

Thank you,

McGarrett

Turn the fridge off anytime you aren't using it.

Since I left it in the "on position" but power and LP OFF, any harm for a week?

No damage but turn it off before powering up.

Thank you lx22f/c.

I'll need to turn on the house power to be able to get the fridge's display to illuminate so I can turn it off. Or is there another method?

Must be one of them new-fangled ones with a digital display. Mine has an old school sliding selector switch.

Yep, digital display. It gives you the ability to select your power source..LP, electricity. The frig will not turn on until you select the source of power.
No harm, I do shut all powered items off prior to shutting off the main power switch.
