new GT 335DS(F) Delivery next week - what to expect?

After a year of living with our FR3 30DS' inadequate A/C, we negotiated with our dealer and are taking delivery on a leftover 2016 GT 335DS(F) next week.

Looking forward to 2 A/C units and 50 amps power. Not sure what we're gonna do with 22.5 cuFt of fridge as we are usually on 3-5 day trips for dog shows.

I have 2 questions for you experienced Georgetowners:
1) how long can we expect the house batteries/inverter to keep the refrigerator running?
2) does anyone know what the F in the Georgetown 335DSF means? Of course DS is double slide and the numbers refer to the length. But damn'd if I can figure out the F. The unit has a stainless steel option but that's just the SS frig and micro. Also has a Fantastic (TM) Fan, day/night shades, ext TV, dual pane windows and pwr seat but those don't rise to the level of an F in the main model designation. Maybe it's just a dealer designation.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Full body paint. And some say 12-16 hrs on house batteries.

If you are like us you will love all the extra room in the refrigerator. When we purchased our MH it had the residential and we almost told our salesman we didn't want it. Now I wouldn't want a MH without one.
We don't dry camp though. When my batteries were new I tried running off them and could get 12 to 16 hours if it was cool outside and we didn't open the fridge door. Now maybe 4 to 6 before the batteries are at half charge. I only have two batteries though, don't know if the new units have more.

We don't dry camp either, but 13 or so is what I've heard. Guess it depends on the weather as well.

We had 3 trailers before the FR MH, all had the typical RV fridge. The residential fridge has been great. Ice through the door, yes. All that freezer space!!! No more cramming stuff in every corner. There are 4 of us when we travel, now everyone gets what they want.

My fridge will run for a couple days at least on battery once it's cold. Also if you don't open it, it will stay cold with little or no loss of temps for 7-8 hours without power. (Depending on outside temps). I have 4 6volt batteries.
