2015 DSRL Outside Refrigerator

We just bought this trailer last weekend, brought it home, parked it in the driveway and plugged it in. Today I was getting something out of the storage area and I heard the small refrigerator in that area running. Since it will be another 4 weeks before we can go camping I don't want it running all that time. Does anyone know how to turn that refrigerator off? The directions say the adjustment knob is on the side of the freezer box but there's nothing there. On the front it says, "PD" but I can't find a refrigerator manufacturer by that name to check their web site. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Jeff

There isn't a thermostat inside anywhere? Look again, if you find it, turn it towards "0" until it stops and your compressor should shut off.

The adjustment knob is inside the refrigerator shell near the compressor, not inside the food compartment. You have to reach in from the back and the adjuster is on the forward (tongue) side near the bottom. Use a mirror and you can see it if you can get your upper body inside the storage compartment. Or you could just unplug it if you can reach it; if I recall correctly it is not hard wired.

Thanks for the information. I'll check it out tomorrow in the light. I wonder why they would put the adjusting knob in such an awkward location.

Thanks Russ661. I got a mirror and climbed in the storage compartment and it was right where you said it was. Of course there's only room for a mirror or a flashlight so I couldn't see it very well, but I saw it. I turned it counterclockwise until it stopped. I assume that's zero. What a weird place to put an adjusting knob. I wish I knew which one was the circuit breaker for that refrigerator. I'd just turn it off and on from the breaker box. Thanks again for your help.

As I have stated before....The people that design these RV's do not use them. If they were users it would have been done differently.

It is a good idea to identify each outlet on each breaker in your ac panel. Just use an indicator light and make a record on a piece of paper that is handy.

It may come in handy one day for troubleshooting.

I plug mine into a electrical strip with an on/off switch. Strip is mounted on the wall just behind and to the right of fridge with outlets facing the front of the trailer.

I like the power strip idea. I could never figure out how to turn it off and the manual made no mention of it. Thanks for the idea.

I have similar unit and I traced the electric card to a hole in the cabinet top. Plug in was under the counter top. Removed a drawer, reached in and unplugged the fridge, ran cord for a elec
tric strip into the hole and plugged it in. Plugged the fridge in to the strip and now shut off the fridge when storing the unit.
