Refrigerator

2015 Winnie Adventurer 38Q. Does anyone know where the fridge plugs in? I want to turn off the power for the winter. Thanks, Dr Andy

Never looked for where my frig plugs but I do like to disconnect the power. For me, the easy route is to flip off all breakers that are not feeding things I want left on. The frig is usually on a different breaker than other things.
I had this idea that I might be able to head off some trouble and one item I have had is rodents chewing things like wiring, so I like to have as few fire starters as I can manage when I put it down for storage! I also throw some rat bars into most any space that looks inviting but then I still find the little creeps get into places I don't expect them.

Not sure about yours, but on my Meridian the frig is plugged in to an outlet that is located in the outside access panel.

On our 2016 38Q the fridge plugs in behind it. We have a small access door on the outside of the coach, we open that door and look to the left behind the fridge and there is an outlet.

If you don't have an actual main battery switch (most Winnies do) then it's a basic part of winterization to disconnect the battery entirely before storage. There should be no need to turn off the fridge separately.

We have a '14 38Q. Yes, as others have said, open the access door from the outside of the MH and reach in to your left and the outlet will be there. I had to find this quickly when we had an electrical fire in the main distribution panel under the bed. We were a couple of thousand miles from home on an extended stay so refrigerator full of food. We just plugged the refrigerator directly into the campground post until the distribution panel could be replaced.

We added a 24" heavy duty extension cord to the frig outlet to make it easier to plug it back in. Between my big head and big hand it was awful hard to see the plug...
