Refrigerator/Inverter issue

I have a 2019 37BHSS2Q which has a 12v residential refrigerator. I was told by the dealer that I should have an inverter somewhere to be able to run the fridge while hooked up to the truck. Iíve looked everywhere possible in the camper and can not find it. Is it possible that it just doesnít have one and my only choice is shore power? Iíve tried searching threads and canít find anything. I know my model is not a very common one.

What is the refrigerator model? Some do run on 12vdc but most commonly it is LP with a 12vdc ignition.

apparently they are now using 12 volt only refrigerators. if you have one of these it would not need an inverter as it would be powered directly from the batteries. shore power does not run the refrigerator, though it will be needed at some point to recharge the batteries.

if you will post make / model of the refrigerator this can be confirmed.

if its a 120 v residential fridge , the inverter will probably be behind a panel in your front passthru storage,

According to the brochure, it does have a "10.7 cu. ft. 12v Ever Chill refrigerator".
That means that you won't have an inverter. The fridge runs directly off the batteries. The converter recharges the batteries when on shore power.

Another salesman that doesn't have a clue about what their selling. How come I'm not surprised???

Here’s the data plate. Looks like it’s only 115v

Edit: picture came through terrible, Model# WRT106TFDB01. Looks like it’s probably just a standard resi fridge.

Yeah the dealer had no clue even though it sat on their lot for months and we’re no help to me. I appreciate the help guys.

Apparently you got a model without the 12volt DC fridge.

You should certainly have an inverter with that model. Check the front passthru as skytrash said.
