Are you using the convertor in the RV to charge the batteries with the RV connected to 110VAC from the generator? The 12V battery charge side of most generators are not as effective as using the convertor.

Since the gas side of the fridge requires 12v it will run the battery dead.
To many times running the battery dead will kill the life of the battery drastically.
Assuming your getting a "full" charge the battery may be getting weak from being fully discharged.

The frig should not draw that much just for the ignition. You have a battery problem.

You'll get more amp hours from 2 6 volts then you will from one 12v

I'm with oc the battery is probably the issue from running dead.

Also using the converter to charge your battery via your normal shore power plug in is best. "As stated "

The proper way to charge the battery and explained why the generator wasn't doing it....
We had to make a special plug/ ground for the Honda.
