My camper doesn't have gas, battery or water storage.

I have a small power inverter (800W/1600 Peak), a gas powered battery charger, and a gas generator. My fridge uses 85W (170 start?). I'd like to keep meats cold in the fridge, have one box fan and one lamp. If I were to install one marine/deep cycle battery, about how long would it take for just the fridge to drain the battery enough that I would need to charge it? Do you think I could use the fan and fridge through the night? I have a window unit for an A/C and don't plan to use it but wonder how it compares to the roof mounted units and how long they can be run on the battery in those units.

What is the best method for pressurizing the water tank? Which is the best pump?

Thanks in advance for all your opinions and suggestions!
