Residential Fridge

Howdy all,

Well Friday the wife and I become the proud owner of a Redwood Sequoia 38 GKS. My one question I have so far, how long will the refrigerator last on the inverter?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the group, and congratulations on your new coach. We do not have the residential refer. Others who do will need to know your battery set up in order to give you a guesstimate. How many batteries? What group/size batteries?

Congrats and welcome. We have 2 batteries tied in with the residential fridge. No problems running it all day travelling. Do not know how long when not plugged in as we have not dry camped with it

Ford truck guy, I am talking about traveling.

Shane Wood, thanks for the info. The trailer has two batteries up front and as for battery size, I haven't a clue, yet. All I know is we will be on the road for 12-13 hours and was just curious if the fridge would stay cold that long hitched to the truck

It will be fine . .
we run from PA to the Florida Keys and back each year with no issues...

Going down I split up the ride between our southern offices , so that no issue... Coming home , I leave the Sarasota area and run all day the 1st day till I get to Doswell VA , which is sometimes 15 hours and no problem....

That is , as long as your batteries are good... and a good connection between the truck and trailer

Yep, as long as you have a good functioning charge line between the TV and the RW no problem. Ours draws 11 amps at 12 volts when running, but it doesn't run much.
I added two additional batteries, group 29s, and with those 4 batteries the fridge can run for several days with no other connections.

Well, Mine only seems to run about 4-5 hours on battery, frig is full and pre-cooled. My dealer only installed one Group 24 (April 2015) that only has about 80 amp hours. Reading my inverter book and it says it requires 200 amp hours, So I have not purchased the 2nd one to match the 1st one - and now since the 1st one is a year old - I should get 2 new ones of the same age, But since the 2 will still be too small - Just Saving some $$ to buy 2 - T105's at 225Ah.... Normally we are plugged into something - Power at Home, TV or Campground - So it hasn't been a problem yet...

Not a good idea to have different aged batteries. The old one will drain the new. You might consider 2 - 6v golf cart batteries. You'll have more amp hours than 2 12v. I got mine at Costco for about $80 ea (I have 4).
