Question 12v Furrion fridge boondocking?

Hi, looking again at the Alpha Wolf 23RD-L, can choose either the Furrion 12v/110v 10 cubic foot Vibrationsmart fridge, or go with 8 cubic foot LP/110v fridge.

Unit comes with one Series 27 battery and the 50w solar charging system... anyone have some real-world "off-grid" timing for how long the 10 cu ft 12v fridge can run with this very basic solar/battery setup?

I have the 12v and the solar pkg and have been told the 27 would make it a weekend, but I have my doubts. A 50w panel doesn’t do a lot. If boondocking will be a regular thing, I might pay the difference for the slightly smaller LP version. As for me, I plan on buying a small quiet genny anyway in case I do have the need to charge up but I plan on being plugged in most of the time.

Safe travels,

If you have a 12v fridge and you plan on running the furnace, you'll be lucky if a basic 12v dual purpose marine battery lasts one night.
