A residential fridge doesn't use propane, just 120 VAC either from shore power, generator, or an Inverter.

And a standard RV absorption fridge will use either 120 VAC or propane, not both at the same time like the water heater.

"Nice not dealing with a RV frig any longer!!!"

I totally agree! Residential fridge cools faster and holds a decent temp way better. I won't go back to RV fridge that's for sure.

My res frig will cool from ambient temp to zero-38 in a little over an hour.
And an alternator will NOT supply enough current to operate the 1000w invertor. Good batteries are essential.

Don't agree. I have driven 5 or 6 hours after being plugged in and fridge cold. On arrival the batteries are stll full. I believe the alternator can keep up.

You are not pulling a trailer with a light duty pickup, so ............

We are, but a RV trailer is different then a RV coach.

Your batteries are not being charged by an under wired, 20' or more charging line that is going through a 7 way connector to another 15' or so of wire before it gets to the batteries.

In case you can't figure it out, look at the heading. DRV Mobile Suites. And I don't care if you disagree. You can not change the laws of physics..
