In the same vein, here in New England, in January, I empty our 15 cu. ft. chest freezer into boxes, which I place on the porch overnight, then unplug the freezer, let it defrost, mop it out, plug it in and let it chill down, and repack it again from the boxes.

What does this have to do with tech comm? Never underestimate what users will do with a piece of equipment. We can be very creative about stuff that never makes it into the manual.

"I had an uncle who homesteaded in Alaska.  During the winter you unplug
the freezer and don't consume power when it isn't needed (especially
desirable if your power is by generator).  You consume your excess game,
turn the freezer on and close it up in time for the spring thaw."

My freezer was outside in our screened in deck. It was left plugged in
because I had wired a switch inside to control that outlet. Mine also had
Caribou (and Moose, and lots of salmon). However, the meat was packaged so
the lid could close in the event a willowa (warm air blased from the
south) came in. (It was 54 degrees F one year on Christmas Day...and 30
below the day after.)

The freezers in Anaktuvuk were on open decks with the lids open. It was
funny walking down the main "street" seeing all these freezers with
Caribou legs sticking out. The reminded me of a dish of giant buffalo
wings without sauce.
