RV refrigerator died

My NDR1402 Dometic refrigerator just died a bad cooling unit. I plan on putting in a residential refrigerator if any alpine owner can give me some advice regarding brand and compatibility with a square wave inverter it would be appreciated. I know there is been some discussion in the past regarding inverters and residential refrigerators

Tom, Western used an Amana side by side. With the original inverter made by Onan that is a square wave, the refrigerator control board needs a resistor changed to a larger wattage. Once that was done our refrigerator was good for over 6 years before we changed to a Xantrex true sine wave because the Onan stopped charging, nothing related to the refer.

If you want more info PM me.
