Refrigerator 120v element watts

2000 Southwind V32.
As measured today 333 watts 120 ac for when it's selected to auto and on 120v (the heating element)
running off my inverter. I was always curious what it was. I thought others might be too.

We have a 10.1 cubic foot Danny ( Owned by Amanda/Whirlpool) that uses 1.9 starting amps or 228 watts and .8 running amps or 96 watts. I checked the above with a kill-a-watt meter 4 times because I was shocked that energy draw was so low.
