Refrigerator power requirement question

We have covered storage with 20 amp service. Can my Samsung refrigerator be operated while I am connected to that? At times we like to load cold food the day before leaving on a trip.

Well the nameplate for our Samsung we're installing says:

Maximum amperes: 1.1A

I would have to guess yes we can.

We don't have the Samsung, but our Whirlpool draws approx the same and is currently running on 20 amps while I get our spot setup with 50 amps, water, and sewer.

There was a duplicate of this thread and I combined them. Hope I didn't mess anything up.

Is it only you on the 20 amp ? if so yes!
if not (like at my storage facility where 3 or 4 are on same leg) it depends on what the total load is... once in a while someone will forget and leave their ac on when they plug in and pow - it trips the breaker...

The storage lot owner gave us the combination to the box so any one of us can reset the breaker and then we can text each other
