Planned use of the RV?

Occasional boondocking ? toss up.
Always boondocking ? 12 volt
99% of RV use in parks with power ?? Residential

I agree, if you never or seldom boondock, then residential has much more room especially interior depth, more consistent cooling and much better freezer. I've owned several mh with the 12v, but now have 2021 precept with the whirlpool residential and am very pleased.

I agree with Paul's comment. My current coach is the first RV I've had with a Whirlpool residential refrigerator and given my family's use of the coach (RV resort or boondocking at an LSU football game with generator running 24/7) I can't imagine going back to the smaller propane / 12 volt Dometic/Norcold type refrigerator my previous travel trailers and motorhome had.

The future of RV's and for that matter, all vehicles will be electric, whether we like it or not. CURRENTLY, all electric RV's are the immediate future. Buying a 2022 with a 12volt refer will lower future resale value in the future. After years of 12 volt/propane refers and the years we battled the Norcold issues, I would never buy anything but residential. Even boondocking can be overcome with solar and some generator use.

Don,
I think he is talking about 12v compressor-driven fridges, not 12v/LP/120v absorption fridges. Would that change your response any?
