taking a stab at what the OP is asking...

if you’re always going to have an electrical
hookup AND a sufficent battery supply +!inverter for travel then residential is the only way to go.

Disconnect the battery and open the fridge door.
If the light comes on its 120 volts.

Most all RV style refrigerators use both 12v and 120v (but cannot run on 12v only). There used to be 3-way refrigerators (12v, 120v, Propane) but I haven't seen those in a while and most now are 2-way (120v and Propane) but still use 12v for the control circuits. What make\model refrigerator do you have?

"There used to be 3-way refrigerators (12v, 120v, Propane) but I haven't seen those in a while"

And might I say for good reason? Every one of those buggers I owned could suck a deep cycle dry in no time! Had the isolator fail one time when I had a cabover and sucked the truck battery dry too. It was a good thing the sandrail was intact for a change, I was able to jumpstart the truck from it.

How could anyone answer this question?

I suggest: find the model number. Google it for an owner’s manual. Read the manual. You have now answered your own vague question.

Maybe a quick way to tell,,,

A two way (propane/120 volt) most likely has buttons on the front exterior. Something like "auto/propane" and "off/on". I may be wrong but I'd bet that a residential fridge would have its control (thermostat) inside the box.

Do rigs with residential refrigerators still have an exterior hatch? Would be pretty easy to know that it was a residential type (120 volt only) if there wasn't one.
