View 24D Fridge Question

We just purchased a 2019 Winnie C Class View 24D with a Norcold residential fridge. The coach has two solar panels on the roof for the stock house batteries. The question is: If we stop overnight at a truck stop where no shore power is available will the fridge keep running on house power alone for the evening or do I have to run the generator for the night?

The fridge will continue to run off your house batteries. If you are planning to do more than an overnight stop once in a while, there are some changes you should probably do - bigger batteries, another panel on the roof, etc.

IS this a DE-0061/EV-0061 Model?


Is it wired for AC & DC Power Supply ---or just AC?


Is it wired to have inverter supply AC Power?


120V AC---0.4A draw
12V DC----3.2A draw


Overnight....OK

OP said 'residential' refer so it won't work on anything but solar, batteries, and an inverter.


My suggestion is that you not worry about it too much because a modern residential refer in a RV will hold it's cold for many hours without power at all. Overnight shouldn't be a problem holding it's cold. Even in the summer...probably.


But I suggest you test that hypothesis too. Just to be aware of how long it will hold the cold.

The OP said "2019 View 24 D". That is a DE0061 refrigerator and is not a residential refrigerator but a modified marine unit. The good news is early purchasers of the V24D model in '18 and '19 had problems which I think have been solved by WGO and Norcold finding the root cause of the issue. If this is a later '19 model the unit should run overnight off his batteries. BTW, as shipped from WGO the View has no AC power to the refrigerator, it is 12VDC operation only. Reports are the refrigerator will run overnight on the OEM batteries now with the fix (removal of a bad fuse holder on the fridge, red wire on top, simple). The inverter has no play in operation as shipped by WGO.

View 24D Fridge Question

Thanks so much for the responses. I will check the date of the fridge. So, it looks like I can get through one night without issues. Don't really intend on boon docking for extended time.

Canít run refer on DC

I upped my solar panels to 440 W and changed out batteries to AGM 210 amp hours. First trip I found out I cannot switch to house batteries with engine off to run refer... does anyone have a fix or know why?

In many RVs there's a single, or set of switches that are often called Saleman's switches. They disconnect sections of the RV from battery so idle draws on the batteries are reduced when it's stored.

So check if you have one of those and make sure it's on. My switch is on the dash, right where I often bump it to Off accidentally. It's called the AUX switch on my dash. And it needs to be ON for most normal operation or travel situations.

Thanks Jim.. I do not have one of those switches. I only have a house battery disconnect switch.. norcold told me yesterday that model , N3150, is designed to only run off of DC while the engine is running. So now I am looking for a workaround with the wiring now that I have adequate house battery capacity and solar capacity...

You have a gas absorption refrigerator which works by heating a gas. It will run fine on propane, shore power/generator, and 12V with the engine running. You do not want to run it on 12V without the engine running as you have far better sources of heat (120V, propane) to make it operate.
