Welcome to iRV2, mnreject. Is this just the wiring that feeds the fridge? If so, it is pretty simple - a 12v wire and a 120v outlet that the fridge plugs into. But if it burned, i suspect the problem is wider spread than that, perhaps destroying the numerous wires on the fridge controller itself. That is fridge wiring rather than Southwind wiring, and you need to identify the make and model of the fridge.

Could you possibly attach a picture of the damaged area? Hard to give any helpful hints without being able to see what wiring you are talking about.

I'm afraid you have a nightmare there. To try and figure out where all that stuffs is going ahead of time is going to be quite a challenge...not sure it's worth it if you don't really need to.

What I have done in similar situations is CAREFULLY pull the burnt section apart, one wire at a time, trying for all your worth not to break any of the wires. Use a razor blade to cut the burnt insulation if you need, to allow doing this. I've been pretty lucky doing this with worst case only having to figure out a couple of wires. Once separated just splice in new sections of wire as necessary. The one or two wires you might break will be easy to figure out with a full systems check. SOMETHING's not going to work.... FWIW
