Hi: cpaharley2008... I can't even remember my name some days!!! Guess I missed an opportunity to try out the "Auto" feature.
I'm still trying to wade thru the manual without getting paranoid!!! Alf

Has anyone come up with a guard or more suitable replacement for the kill switch?

Hi: Cypherian... There's a total kill switch for the entire trailer on the 5.0TA. Trouble is on our 5.0 it was inside the storage bunk near the water heater. The new location is outside, beside the power center. Alf

Hi: Cypherian... Seems like the fridges are dying of their own accord. No switch required. LoL Alf

I put one of these on mine Amazon.com: New 12V/20A Red LED Illuminated On/off SPST Car Automotive Toggle Switch Button: Automotive
bought the switch and removed the cover, it just screws on.
Also you can install a small led to tell you when it is on, so if it's dark you can investigate, did that mod to my 19 Escape, haven't yet to BlackJack. I'll get a "roundtoit" one day.

Thanks folks, I'll try Myron's approach. Jim, I believe the original switch is 30A, the one in the link is 20A.
