I think so to for the on-off and because of using the Norcold control board.
Still, it doesn't draw much and certainly nothing like before with the heating element.
Found this, even though have never checked it out...."This cooling unit is built with a compressor system and not only do you get to keep your same fridge and controls you are used ... It pulls less than 1 Amp and will run off a 600W inverter (does not require pure sine wave)".
And yes, it shouldn't even take a 600w inverter to run it, unless it's because of the surge. My 2000w MSW takes care of the whole coach, anyway, so.....

I just meant that either the Resi or the JC are 120v powered, so either option requires an inverter to be running to power the fridge. Propane is the easiest option for boondocking but Im past that now and happy with that decision so far.

Don't know who told you that about the 120vac only, since JC makes a 12vdc compressor conversion also. Thought about it, but decided on the 120, since the inverter is on for the TV and such when boon-docking anyway. Also have a mini fridge in the basement.
Going down the road, the genset is usually running, but if not, then the inverter and with the alternator keeping the batteries charged.
