From the first post:
Problem 1. You didn't do what the wife told you to (IE: put it in the fridge).
Problem 2. You disagreed with her
Problem 3. you tried to justify your point
How long have you been married?
If the wife gives you something to do, you find a way to get it done!
Never come back to her and say you couldn't do it because of "X" reason! In her mind, there is no reasonable excuse and it's your fault simply because you're a man!
Heck brother, that's like pulling over and asking for directions! We're men! You just don't do it!
Of course, I'm seriously just kidding here......
All joking aside, the RV fridge is fine.
A regular unit might be an option for some, but I would make it just that: an option.
First time someone gets to the campground to find they are "accidentally" overbooked (yeah right.....
) and you have to boondock it in the overflow area they'll be wishing they had an RV fridge instead of a 110 only unit.
The options of a bigger RV fridge are good suggestions. Making it a selectable option for a factory order is a good idea.
We simply accept the restrictions of a smaller fridge and pack accordingly. That we will have to make a few grocery runs in the course of a long trip is a given.....it's all just part of the RV experience for us.
