Default Refrig Question

How do I keep the power on to the refrig after we disconnect from shore power last time we went out everything defrosted. There is a switch inside that says on/off when hooked to shore power it's in the off position should I switch it over before going out? Or am I missing something else.

I'm with SP. Mine automatically flips between the 120VAC and 12VDC when I disconnect from shorepower. However, I ALWAYS leave my fridge set to ON and teh green light is always on. The only thing I do is lower the temp. setting to around 2.5-3. Norcold recommends setting to 3 when on 12VDC to maximize battery life. when I turn it off, it goes off, but then I never turn it off when on Shorepower, so i didn't realize that 120VAC bypasses that shutoff switch. I guess when on 120VAC you'll need to make sure you use the breaker on the panel.
