Hi to all the super helpful people on here!
I'm trying to understand some wiring
options and I hope you all can educate me a little. I'm replacing a dead fridge that was a Norcold with a small "dorm" type residential fridge. I'm not a liveaboard
so I'm not really looking to drop $1200 just to keep my beer
So I have small fridge that fits perfect. Of course I could just plug
it in to the AC outlet in the back of the opening, secure the old DC cords and only run it when at the dock
or when the genset is running.
Or I can hook up a pure sine wave inverter
to the DC wires and run it off that DC inverter
all the time.
My question is there a way to have both? I guess I could drop some money
on a automatic transfer switch but with the cost of that plus a pure sine wave inverter I'm getting close to just paying for a marine
specific fridge anyway.
I highly suspect I have to live with one or the other (or pay for a new marine
fridge) but before I just gave up I thought I'd ask the experts... YOU!
