Outside kitchen fridge how to turn on?

I recently purchased a 2013 Eagle TT 324bts with an outside kitchen. I cannot figure out how to turn on the outside fridge. I can see the power cord coming out of the fridge and into the TT, but cannot tell where it goes to see if it is plugged in. The fridge is bolted to the counter top so I cannot see the back. I look at the manual and it shows a dial that I can use that regulates how cold the fridge is supposed be and this turns it on. I look at the parts list in the manual,and is shows this dial and it even has a picture of the dial in the manual, but it does not show where is is located on little fridge in the outside kitchen.
There is also no dial inside, or on top, on the sides or anywhere outside.
I had my fishing buddies take a look on my first trip and we were not able to locate it.
Are there any 2013 Eagle owners with an outside kitchen that can help?

Can you reach up towards the back top of the fridge? I believe the dial is up there. Just make sure it's adjusted before it's loaded, or else you'll have cans freezing.

I had to take my fridge in, it turned on, but wouldn't cool, you would think they would test this stuff, makes it frustrating.

My outside fridge may be different than yours but it is on any time I'm plugged in to shore power. I don't see a switch or temp dial but can't get behind mine easily. It cools though so I'm not messing with it.

Who ever thought this was an accepable design out to be shot. the previous poster was correct. In my 2014 whitehawk, the tstat switch is on the outside upper right corner. you can't see it and can only reach it by sticking your body into the storage compartment and blindly feeling into a 8" cutout in the paneling that separates the fridge from the storage area. You have to do it by feel to get it set. Turn it off, then all the way to hi to get the range. Then back off to get to the med setting. Its all by feel.

Make sure the GFI plug in the bathroom is turned on.. it controls all outside plugs and appliances that are outside

I have a different fridge then what is being described above in my ODK. My thermo switch is inside the fridge and my plug is dead center of the kitchen for easy removal when not in use. The brand is two letters one of which is a P I believe.

I have the same fridge. Thermostat is shown in owner manual as being located inside the fridge, but it's no tthere. Found it on the back side of fridge at top right corner. You cannot see it without getting a stepladder and using a mirror. I wrote to Jayco about this and they stated the manufacturer made a chang with out telling them. This is bogus, they have to set the temp when they installed the unit, so they knew of the problem before sent the units out. They offered no resolution for the problem.
Also, the unit in mine in plugged in under the counter top of the outside kitchen. I removed the drawer on the left side, unplugged fridge, plugged in a 4 plug surge strip with off/on switch that I placed on top of the counter with double sided tape, then plugged the fridge into it. Now I can at least turn unit off when not needed.
