Just setup your Xantrex for a 15A incoming amperage. If anything were to exceed that the Inverter will add the additional juice. But 15A is plenty for storage purposes.
I don't think that inverter is a hybrid unit that can supplement the shore power.

The power share is just so it doesn't use to much of the incoming shore power, while in charge mode.

Sorry for so many newb questions... I also dont like unintentionally starting fires!
Your nevercold will work as well as it ever will on just 15 amps, however I can't stress enough what has already been stated, DO NOT OPERATE your fridge in that extreme an un-level condition. You risk damage to the fridge at a minimum, and a fire risk down the road in the worst case.

I have a 30 amp outlet that I use to keep the batteries charged. While on the slope I don't use slides, Jack's, or refrigerator. I can pull forward near the street to a level spot where we can open level the coach, extend slides, and power the refrigerator when getting the coach ready.
Thats been one thing- I've heard on a slop like ours (yours being more severe), that you dont want to try and cool the fridge whilst sloped. I could back the coach up next to the house the day before a trip to level it out so we can run the fridge. fricken geography!

We canít even think about getting in our driveway,and the street out front is sloped as well. We only bring it to the house to load, u load, or fix something for a day or two. Iíve had several problems the last three years attributable to the slope. I have 2 sets 2x12s layered three high, for driving up on the right rear, and 1 layer of 2x12 for the left rear. It gets pretty close to level. But I swear it also is twisting the frame. The storage bay doors on the passenger side wonít latch. The big heavy passenger side slide pops so I quite opening it at home. And last week, the coupe de gras. I was running the driver side bedroom slide out....a loud metal pop, and the slide jammed 3/4 out. It sheared teeth off the motor gear assy.
