Plug In storage compartment

Will this run one of the small refrigerators? The DW wants to put one in there. Thanks Ronnie

It should handle a small refrigerator as those only draw 2-3 amps.

BTW, it would help if you created a signature so when you post something everyone will know what RV you are asking about.

A signature will show up below your post every time
and it helps to have your RV type, make, model, year, etc
so others can better help you.

To edit or add a signature,
click on User CP at the top left of every forum page,
under Settings & Options click on Edit Signature,
make your changes and click on Save Signature.

I have a "dead" outlet AND a mini-fridge in my basement. Can't figure out where the power switch is... for the plug. Also have dead outlets next to the driver and passenger seats. I think they are on the same circuit, at least that would make sense to me? Didn't know that there was even a fridge in the basement until earlier this summer... some three years after I bought the coach! It was/is disguised and I thought it was something else but a fridge it is!

I'm not sure an outlet installed for a fridge would be switched anywhere besides the breaker. Have you checked that? And just in case, remember this is an AC breaker and not a DC fuse.

My basement outlets are as follows

1 Central Vac, switched/control by load management

2 Live

Maybe yours is load managed

The first passenger compartment is not connected to the inverter if you have the prewire for a 12v fridg. So no power if not on shore power. Run an extension cord to the outlet in the back passenger compartment, the one before the pegboard compartment.

I know I don't have a load management system. Rig is vintage! But I will recheck the breakers. The outlets on either side of the drivers/passenger seats are not working too. Hmmmmm!
