Residential Fridge in Tradewinds

I have a 2001 Tradewinds model 7390 and I have installed a residential fridge. Here's my question was the Inverter wired to the fridge plug in?

The reason I'm asking is because my Freedom 458 2000 Inverter died and has been replaced with the same Freedom 458 2000 but I have no power from the inverter to the wall socket that the fridge plugs in to.

Yes, I do have shore power to the fridge, just wondering since Nationial used the Dometic fridge and it ran off electric or propane did they hook it up to the inverter??

So for those of you who have changed out the old fridge for a residential did you install a different Inverter or does your 458 Freedom 2000 run the fridge?

They don't run inverter power to gas/electric fridges.

If your fridge has a ice maker, that outlet may be on the inverter circuit. See if you have 2 outlets back there.

Many fridges will run on MSW inverter power, some electronic controls will not.

With a PWS inverter, the fridge will run about 30% more effecent. That's important for battery capacity while dry camping, more then while traveling from camp ground to camp ground with electric available.

Many who convert to 120 volt fridges, pick up a PSW 1000 watt inverter and wire it into the fridge circuit to run it.

The old double door Dometic was taken apart, the cooling unit and doors were removed and they took it through the door. The residential fridge had the door removed and went thru the door. It was a Haier 10cf

.
The one plug has the two that my Dometic and the ice maker ran off of. My residential fridge does not have an ice maker.
