    I am looking for a way to turn on and off the 120 volt power to the fridge from inside the camper. I don't think the plastic 90 degree locks for the outside fridge access cover will last a long time with continued use and they are a pain for me. I know my outlet by the sink has a breaker that if tripped will shut off the fridge.

    Has anyone added an inside switch to control power to the fridge?

    Why not change the locks?

    Welcome :) we really like them, I just try not to drop them in the dirt. The bolt is captive.

    Put your frig on its own dedicated ac circuit, mine is (easy to do in an Aliner).

    If it's a 2-way fridge, just switch it to propane.
