RE: How do you turn off the residential fridge?

Nothing is truly "shut off" anymore.Well yes, but I assume we're talking about turning off the refer to the point it's not cooling. Agree.

RE: How do you turn off the residential fridge?

It must be too expensive to put circuitry in them to be "off." I have a Walmart special cheap rice cooker that has no on/off switch either. You plug it in, it's on. Think about it? If you buy a digital clock, a microwave oven, a television, a stereo system, DVD player, .... actually ... any new, modern electronic device, is there a switch to "truly" turn them off? There is always a power drain on them; LED lights, remote control access, power-saver modes... but no true "off" on anything any more. The only way to be, somewhat" sure is to unplug it, and then it may have a built in battery back-up ... like every cell phone and computer does. Nothing is truly "shut off" anymore.

RE: How do you turn off the residential fridge?

I have a 2019 Montana High Country 375FL. It has a residential refrigerator. The refrigerator is Model RF18HFENBSR. Here's the URL to the Samsung User's Manual so you can check it out yourself. http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201501/20150128152312186/DA68-01845C-16_NW2-FDR_XAA-EN.pdf After watching dozens of YouTube videos on this refrigerator and trying everything possible with the actual machine, I finally contacted my RV dealership (Walnut Ridge RV near New Castle, Indiana) and asked them the simple question, "How do I turn it completely off." Answer: .... and I quote.... "You can't!" The only way to completely turn it off is to unplug it. If the refrigerator is in a 2019 Montana, it's probably the same Samsung refrigerator, french doors with freezer on bottom, Ice maker, and may or may not have the water dispenser. If you have the Samsung in a Montana, you won't have a way to turn it off. My dealer told me... AND I QUOTE again, so I'm not being a "Mr. Know it all or a smart AZZ here"... flip the breaker in the breaker box. (Because the plug is impossible to reach without dismantling the parts that hold it in its cabinet so you can pull it up. There's no panel or access to the plug, no hidden switches, nothing!) I also asked about the inverter. If the inverter is turned on, the refrigerator will run off the battery when not plugged into shore power as long as the inverter is turned on. When plugging the camper into shore power, the transfer switch will detect the camper is now plugged into AC shore power and will switch over automatically from battery to shore power. But the inverter will still keep running off the battery. It does not shut itself off automatically because you plug into shore power. RK911 (the third post on this thread) gave you the correct answer. FYI, pushing the 2 buttons shuts down the compressor from running, but the refrigerator is not truly "off". That feature is designed for usage in stores when they display these refrigerators. The manual does not recommend using the refrigerator that way.

RE: writing on camper

Took our previous camper into to our dealer for a repair. They wrote my last name on the front cap. It cleaned off, eventually. Wish they would have not done that though. I don't know what they used. Regardless of what the situation is, don't write on their RV. It IS considered graffiti and that is vandalism, no matter how you may try to justify it. Leave a note stuck in the door or taped to the door handle or glass window. Otherwise, it is vandalism.

RE: Forum dead

RV sales are declining also. Maybe there is a correlation? You know what's really sad? Every time I go into the Indianapolis, Indiana location Camping World, I always take a moment to talk to some of the employees, including the salesmen. There's almost always someone standing around. I'll start a conversation over something RV related and they will begin to chime in. Now, I will begin to manipulate the conversation, which always leads to the question: "Have you ever heard of the internet forum site, RV dot net or OpenRoads?" And every single person I ask that question to, and I'm talking every Camping World I've ever been in, from Sturges SD, to Georgia, the answer is always a resounding, "No." And then I tell them they should, it's their company's web site forums. And then I suggest the next time they get on a computer they look up RV.net and start reading. Now, if Camping World won't even advertise or promote their own services, and their own employees don't even know RV.net exists, then how does other RV enthusiasts ever know. Maybe if Camping World would let their customers know this web site exists, and the portals are Camping World, Good Sam, Coast-to-Coast, and MotorHome magazine, maybe participation would increase. I'm just saying Camping World? Why not educate your employees?
