If you don't run the AC or water heater on electric and keep all electric usage to a minimum, it would be OK to run a very long skinny extension cord to the trailer. I would suggest a #14 or #12 cord.

820 plus grade would be a serious grade to be putting that trailer on. I understand it's only a 21 foot but I wouldn't do it it just seems too dangerous to me. I have started my camper for camping I have a 210 Fun Finder X and run my refrigerator on propane most all of the time you're not going to run out of propane or kill a battery that quickly I am running to 12 volt and I can easily run three to four days of refrigerator plus other things while camping before I need to recharge. That being said I am very frugal with the electric. But to bring a camper in and parked down the street a day before to get it cold to load it no you will not kill your battery and I don't believe it would be that hard on your electric or gas. Best of wishes have a great time camping... Dusty

I would not try to park my rig on a hill as steep as you describe. Any storage around? You gotta be killing your tow vehicle trying to get that thing up your driveway. Best of luck

If you have to cool the fridge quickly have some of those reusable ice bricks to add in with your food both in the freezer or refrigerator. Or put a bag of ice in a Tupperware type container top and bottom-fill the refrigerator/freezer with cold items and go. Just don't try to cool warm food drinks until it gets to temp. Good luck.
