OK
Real quick can you go outside and tell me if you see a small black box that is clipped to the coils on the fridge? The wires will run from the round flue canister to the small box and then to the circuit board, on this small black box will be a light indicator, need to know if the light is ON.. This was part of a recall and when that light is ON it prevents the fridge from working..
Also what is the model name of the HR?

Drivers side you should have a fuse box with a large cover, remove that cover, inside that box I am showing you have a circuit breaker for the fridge and one for the interior panel...
CIRCUIT BREAKERS
Refrigerator 2-Way/3-Way 5/30A
Interior Fuse Panel 50A
Hope this helps.. Robert

I don't see any circuit breakers in that panel only fuses and the main house relay

OK
Outside in that bay do you see a cover with a wing nuts on it? Below that will be two other smaller fuse boxes, normally the fuse for the fridge is in that larger box, what I might do is get a test light and probe all of your fuses. The only other spot I know where it might be is if it was wired direct to the battery they would be using a smaller gauge wire with an in-line fuse. Robert

I checked all the "floor" fuses with a meter. I thought you might know exactly where the power was derived for this viach

OK
Looking again in that fuse box, you should have switched house 12 volt power fuses, normally it is marked refer but I do not see that there is a 15 amp one marked Freezer, have you checked that one?
Robert
understand, from all the Monaco's I have seen the fridge gets it's power from that front fuse box..... Makes no sense why they would have one marked freezer unless it is for the fridge.....
Let me know....
