Refrigerator power;

We recently installed a residential refrigerator in our 1336RE, what do we need to do to power the frig while traveling? I know that we have to be able to convert 12 volts dc to 120 volts ac. The most road time we do isnít more than 6 to 7 hours? So maybe we might not need to do anything? Any ideas?

Vaughan put a residential fridge in his and added an inverter to keep it operating.

I have the same inverter as Highcountry. That’s what Redwood uses along with the Mangum Energy CSW-TS15 transfer switch. Here’s the owners manual: http://www.magnum-dimensions.com/fil...token=rHJ1rIwm

I just now added an inverter. Towed it for almost a year and a half after putting in the residential frig without one. If you're going 6-7 hours, it's up to you. We found that at 6-7 hours, the frig went no higher than 42 and the freezer no higher than 10. If it's 8 hours or more, then you definitely need to.

What I decided to do was put in a 3k inverter and since I don't have a generator I tied the inverter into the Left side input of the generator transfer switch. That way I can power the whole left side slide if I want to for tv or anything else. I also added a third Group 31 Deep Cycle battery.

Can you post a diagram of how you wired this up? I have a 2013 36RE and also have installed a Samsung Fridge. Or e-mail me at skipperr53 at g mail. Thanks
