That would depend on your batteries...
A couple of 12 Volt Harris batteries can be easily beaten in a contest between them, and four 6 Volt AGM golf cart batteries.

I was thinking the same thing. No way that fridge should pull 10-11 amps. I wouldn't even think 3. Our Norcold is rated at 2.5 amps on electric. And I have verified it's generally pulling 2-3 while running.

The defrost cycle will pull quite a bit more on the Residential and our 4 door adsorption would pull 6-8 typically and seemed to vary a lot based on the voltage in the campground
