Use of inverter with residential frig


Recommended Posts

We've had Paul & Kay Cross (Indiana Interstate Enterprise) install our new Samsung 197 residential frig & Xantrex Prosine Pure Sine Wave 1800W inverter last week. When plugged into good shore power, what are those of you with a similar setup doing with the inverter? On? Off? Standby?


So far I'm just turning the inverter off when plugged into shore power & ensuring it's on before we unplug & travel. I have experimented and left the inverter in standby. When we unplugged there was a lot of what I call "on-off-on, etc" by the inverter that, to me, seemed to indicate the inverter was just providing intermittent power to the frig. I wasn't comfortable that was good for the health of the frig. So, real interested to hear about others experience with these things.

I also leave my inverter in standby. We check to verify operation as part of the checklist for travelling. You do have to ensure you do not have high power things like an electric heater plugged into an inverter outlet if on shore power. You may drop shore power and will be DISAPPOINTED in the fact your battery bank will not support that electric heater.
