Whirlpool burns up defrost control board

I have Whirlpool Model# ed2kvexvb01 refrigerator that blows the defrost control board when on inverter.
Anyone know how to turn off the defrost cycle while I am traveling and on inverter?
Maybe I could have the defrost control board beefed up to handle the inverter power?

You could turn off the whole refer while rolling down the road. The refer will keep temps for over 8 hours without power. I have gone as long as 20 hours and still have everything in the frezer frozen and the refer part was up to 40.
