Running the refrigerator while in storage.

We usually camp just about every weekend during the season. WE have to store our TT at a storage lot. I would like to keep the refrigerator running during the week so we don't have to load and unload every weekend. Is one battery enough to keep it running all week? Do I need 2 or do I need to get a solar charger?

If the trailer is stored outside in under 80 degree weather then the battery should last a week. If it is stored inside or outside where it is hot or where there is little air circulation then I wouldn't leave it on.. The battery may last, but it is hard on the fridge if there is little air circulation.. Also keep in mind that the trailer should be fairly level or you risk ruining the cooling unit.
Also I guess you will be running it on propane and not electric so you have to consider the cost of gas. If you have a 12 volt fridge then the battery would never make it a week.
