Question by running the inverter will it run out the batteries?
First off welcome......we are glad you are here.
No, your chassis batteries (engine) and you house batteries (living portion) will charge when the engine is running as you drive.
The batteries will deplete when you are not running the engine or generator. The generator will also charge the batteries.
As an FYI, your residential fridge, when cool, takes very little electricity to run. As you prepare for a trip, tun your fridge on if plugged in to precool before you put food in it. A 110v plug is enough for you to run the fridge when parked.
With all this said, you can run your generator as you drive down the road if you want to run the roof ACs. This is nice for when you get to your stop, your rig is cooled.
Good luck, there is a large learning curve but that's what your iRV1 family is here for.
