Depends and for example....
With our old coach, I installed an after market inverter and ran an outlet to the back of the gas/elect fridge for use going down the road and or short stints here and there, with the engine and genset off.
Thing is, rv fridges are power hogs, so really does number on the batteries if let on them too long. Sooooooo, when parked and especially if gone all day, I always turned it off the fridge. This way if the power went out, it would shift to gas, instead of the inverter.
Same thing with our present coach, but have since converted the fridge to a residential type compressor unit, so now the inverter is usually left on and even as we speak, while it's plugged in out in the driveway.
