Inverter not powering RR

I have a 2011 Allegro RED 36 QSA with a Xantrex 2000 (modified sine wave) inverter and a Whirlpool two-door residential refrigerator, GB9FD7. When using my generator or shore power, the RR works just fine; but when attempting to use the inverter, the RR has no power at all. The inverter works because I do have power to all TVs and a microwave. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

It sounds like your inverter powers most outlets, but not all outlets. The refrigerator is likely on a separate circuit from the rest and the inverter isn't wired up to it. This is how it is for me.

Shore power = refrigerator, microwave, wall outlets.
Inverter = wall outlets only.

On mine there were two outlets on back of fridge area. One was on inverter the other shore / gen. May just need to unplug and plug into other outlet. Mine was accessible thru outdoor vent.

Is this a recent problem or always been that way since you owned it? And is this a factory install and not a later conversion? If it was a later conversion, whether dealer or private party, it may well be that the inverter does not power the fridge outlet. If it is a factory install, the residental fridge option includes two extra batteries and is clearly intended that the inverter provide power to it.

What's a RR?
Is the "RR" your WTDRR, (Whirlpool two-door residential refrigerator)?

When I installed our Samsung residential unit, I specifically installed an outlet from the inverter so that I could plug the refrigerator there and have it work while we're driving. It also works for boondocking, even though we don't do that much.
