I have had a 12v/gas unit in my earlier RV's and now a residential unit in my 33IK... My observations..

1) heavy, probably but so are 5th wheels
2) can use on 120v or 12v (via a "good converter")
3) have used one battery with no issues ( i do not typically dry camp)
4) always use while traveling, not sure why I would not? TV charging battery. Also no question about operating fridge with gas while traveling or going thru some tunnels with my fridge on.
5) more capacity than gas/120v unit
6) gets cold fast, do not have to worry about turning on way ahead of use and then making sure all the food I put in is already cold or frozen.
7) does not ice up or constantly drain water outside
8) I can stand in front of the open door and wonder what I want without worrying about letting all the cold out :
9) I can have my vanilla ice cream that is actually frozen

I think the biggest trade off is how you camp. If you do a lot of dry camping then a residential is probably not your best choice but if not, you will love the residential unit imho...

Dalford, I could not have said any better! You are so correct. Many of us don't dry camp so the residential fridge is the best thing to happen for RV's in a long time!

My res fridge has a screw in knob that holds the doors shut. Works flawlessly. The door shelves are residential and not made to take weight bouncing down the road. Replaced one already. Limit weight and stick soft plastic not glass in the doors. Otherwise inverter + Trojan batteries + inverter is great!

On my Creek the knob that kept the refrigerator doors closed got crossed threaded and this is what I came up with, a long strap. I have pictures of it, it works for meClick image for larger version
