The frig has a lot to like but that one con is big.
We are in the same quandary as you. The wife & I just purchased our 2016 WS31 w/residential fridge, so don't know what to expect. I just changed out the dead pair of factory 12v batteries for 2 Intersate 6v deep cycle. We shall see how they hold up next week.
Something I read somewhere was, the owners were turning the fridge off at night. They said it was holding temp very well. Then starting it again during the day when they could run the generator.
