Hi, I have seen them do this before. Seems to work good. just run the fridge for around a couple of hours before you hit the road and if you are going to be parking for the night you may want to run the generator with the fridge on again.

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

We have done this with no problem. The only hassle is when we are on shore power remembering to unplug from inverter and plugging it into the 110 outlet. Probably would not be any problem with leaving it plugged into inverter but why drain the batteries.

We did this in our Class C. Make sure you attach it well. The coolant tubing is routed thru the sides and top so you need to allow a couple inches of airspace there. Ours is simply put in the same space (widthwise) as the original Dometic 3-way. We stretched the height since we stacked a refrigerator (110vAC) on top of a freezer. Both units will run off the genset while under way (that's how we re-wired the RV). I would have to run the genset under way in order to power the rooftop AC unit anyway. We haven't needed to do this... yet. The units stay cold/frozen for up to 200 miles. That was on a 100 degree summer day.

check out Norcold's Marine reefers. They run on either 12, 24, or 120 and do not require a inverter. Mine runs on one 12VDC deep cycle battery for 2 days without recharge. The freezer keeps ice cream. I have had mine now for four years and not a bit of trouble. Fits right in the standard reefer hole on most RV's. Different sizes available, mine is a 6.3 CU feet. You don't have to level the trailer, because these units are not sensitive to variance from vertical. Norcold Marine, Model # DE 0061, price when purchased was $1400.00 Great unit, fully repairable, not like absorption reefers.
