Most modern residential refrigerators are very energy efficient and will use considerably less power than an RV refer running on electric. For example, the Samsung RF18 which replaces the RF197 that was so frequently used as a replacement in RVs, uses an estimated 594kWh of electricity per year. That is only slightly more electricity than a 60W incandescent light bulb. Not bad for 50% more capacity than the typical 4-door RV fridge.

The point is if yours goes bad it is much less expensive to change to a residential unit. The size usually stays about the same.
