Dometic RM 760 specs????

I have the Dometic rm 760 gas/electric freezer/fridge in my Dodge Tioga motorhome. Very excellent unit that gets cold in less than 5 hours every time I use it. Does anyone know the power specs on this model. I have looked all over Google to find nothing. I am trying to kind out the power consumption on the AC side to see if I can run it off my generator which can handle a peak load of 900 watts 7amps. I am not sure where on the fridge I would locate the product tags either. So if anyone knows the specs it would be of great help. Thank you.

I believe your refrigerator was originally equipped with a 250 watt heating element. Now the replacement element for a RM760 is rated at 295 watts.

The 12 v side uses about 1 amp an hour.

A 900 watt generator should be able to run the refrigerator, but if you turn on a TV or a few incandescent light bulbs you'll exceed your capacity.

Hey Thanks. Yes I opened the refrigerator vent on the outside. The service labels rated it at 120 Volts AC 60 Hertz 2.4 amps on the AC power side and about 15,000 btu on the gas side. So yes this will run off of generator with no trouble. Thank you all

My interior lights are all LED which take less than an a amp to run all the inside lights, and my tv is a small flat screen that takes less than 25 watts to run. So this generator will provide plenty of power.
