Two way fridge

Ok Battery dead on RV If I start the fridge on Propane while hooked to Tow Vehicle and then remove the battery to charge it ( trailer in storage Facility ) will the fridge continue to run if left overnight cold by next morning? Thanks could not find the answer in a search.

Fridge requires 12v for on propane setting. While connected to shore [110v] the fridge does not require 12v.

Not sure exactly the minimum solar panel required but mine is a 250w and easily runs the fridge while in storage. My guess would be a 100w panel would work as well for sure during the summer months.

If you're wanting to leave the RV plugged into the TV AND the 7-way plug stays powered with the TV off, then the fridge should continue to run on propane through out the night.

However, as eluded to above, the fridge needs 12 volts to run, so if you unplug the TV from the RV or if when you turn the TV off it disconnects the power from the 7-way plug the fridge will cease to operate.

I would just be careful not to drain the tow vehicle battery if theres a posibilty of being inconvienced
