See if they will swap it out for a residential model for you.

Refrigerators come in all different widths/sizes. I would think there is one that would fit. You might even have room left over on one side for a pantry.

We are currently researching full time units that have a residential fridge as an option. We prefer one over a regular RV fridge. Realize you can upgrade to a residential fridge but if you intend to travel with it and want the fridge to function while you travel you will need a 1000 to 2000 watt inverter with charger and 2 or 3 batteries dedicated to the fridge inverter.

Keith, I might be wrong, but I was under the impression you could run a residential fridg on a lot less then a 1000 or 2000 watt inverter. I was thinking a 600 watt would be close to doing the job for just the fridg.

Residential units vary on power requirements. so it would be interesting to see some input on best choices.

I bought a wattage meter to check the loads on my house before i purchased a generator for the house. My newer fridge uses about 250 to 300 watts running (didn't check startup) and an older one in the garage used 300 - 350 watts. I was surprised they were so low.

Lloyd, you could be right that a 600 watt would wok for just a fridge. I was basing my answer off what I am seeing for options on 22 to 24 Cu Ft residential fridges most of the higher end units offer. If the OP does not move much from site to site and tends to stay in one location I would not worry about getting an inverter. I don't plan on getting that option with a residential fridge.
