For continuity sake, and sorry for missing this last summer, but no (only at around 1500ft at most outside of Denali).

We just purchased a new Wildwood 233RBXL. The refrigerator is gigantic compared to a regular rv one, but it only runs on DC. We were told that it is relatively new thing but a battery should last a couple days at least. We asked for 2 batteries but the dealer told us they wouldn't fit but gave us a single 12 volt that is much bigger than the regular 12 volt. We have a honda 2000 generator and a 100 watt solar panel but the battery still has a hard time keeping up when the generator is not running. We dry camp for long periods of time. Any suggestions?

Your dealer isn't necessarily correct.. You probably have an Everchill 12v DC fridge. Personally i would never have such a fridge, since we dry camp a lot.
But if you always camp with electric hookups, then a single 12v battery should be sufficient.
But if you dry camp or boondock, you'll need more than a single battery.
Your trailer's A-frame should have enough room for two Group 24 12v batteries or two 6v golf cart batteries.
