I not sure how many times this has to be posted but your residential refer will do fine while running down the road. The refer is being powered thru the converter and you vehicle engines alternator is keeping the battery charged. My Cardinal only had one 12 volt battery and it would keep the refer running for 48 hours if not plugged into the truck or the campground. My new motorhome has 4 12 volt batteries and it will run for four days off just the batteries. Again while you are driving it is running off the engines alternator.

If you fold the box in half and secure it with duct tape, it fits just fine in a 13 cu. ft. model.

"The refer is being powered thru the converter and you vehicle engines alternator is keeping the battery charged." Our 20 cu ft fridge runs off the inverter, which is powered by four 6 volt batteries (connected in series and parallel), which is recharged by the truck alternator as we go down the highway. In two hours the fridge goes from room temp to 38 degrees in the fridge, 0 degrees in the freezer and stays that way till turned off. The four best things on our CC is the bed, bathroom, A/C's and the fridge.

Four sixes would have to be two in series, and the coupling in parallel, to get 12 v.

Why not four 12v full size batteries all in parallel?

Regarding battery configurations, the more batteries in series the better for the batteries. 6 volt batteries have more watt hours than 12 volt batteries for the same size. Check the battery labels. It would be best to have 4 3-volt batteries in series.
