Don't be confused that one of the cables has a red end on a negative post. The batteries are hooked up right, I have cleaned up the cables nowClick image for larger version

Empt82 looking at your wiring and what is posted in the battery compartment is what is wrong when you look at my diagram provided by CC they are different. You are fighting the same problem I had until I received the new diagram. If you wire based on what I posted you will be able to run for 13 or more hours on battery with no issues for the refrigerator.

Also based on your picture 2 batteries are connected together and the other 2 are connected together. The problem with this is that only one set get charged the other never gets charged. This is the problem I encountered. Most lily the set going to the refrigerator is not getting charge and will not hold. Hope this helps. You will have to purchase an additional connecting cable when moving to the correct wiring diagram. I might have had to purchase 2 but can't remember.

You need a jumper between the two positives and the two negatives to hook the two 12v series pairs together in parallel. Where the two black cables come through the firewall and attach to the batteries, you need a jumper between the two batteries/cables (think triangle). Same as the two red positive cables coming through. Verify this by looking at the diagram behind the batteries.
Easy fix!
