We keep our Wildwood Bunk House at a seasonal site and the fridge stays on all season. When we travel it continues to run on propane until we get plugged in again or return home.

I have a 50 foot orange standard drop cord run from a receptacle on my carport to my class A RV. Its been that way for the last 4 campers I have owned, probably a number 16 wire in it. Never and issue, it will run lights and the refrigerator. I actually keep in plugged up to maintain the batteries, never and issue with anything but, I would think you would need a larger size to run the AC unit. JUst make sure its a good grounded cord and in good condition.

Here in Canada, we camp from mid-May to mid-October.
I start my fridge 2 days before our first trip in May and power it off before winterizing and the end of October.
While on the road, it goes to propane, so really powered all the time non stop.
8 years now doing it this way, trailer always plugged in at home also !
