Must not have been as desperate a situation as presented.

Sorry, but more like 1977. Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey.

Maybe they're still en route from Mainevill, OH to FL and don't have internet connectivity.

Guess we were both wrong. Somehow I got Runnin' on Empty confused with Take It Easy. But I KNEW it wasn't 1960's!

Rode my Yamaha 650 from LA to Philly and back in 1972. For about 150 miles on each side of Winslow, you'd see little signs along the roadside with a pin-up girl on them that said "For men only." Boy, as a 20 yo sailor, I couldn't wait to hit Winslow! Turns out it was a men's clothing store. I was pretty disappointed.

I don't know why you quoted my post. From the post I quoted, I was trying to give a reason why the OP had not returned to update us.

This is off of post #10. See posts 10, 22, 24, and 25. Somehow mis-quoted you. Sorry. Sometimes my mouse moves faster than my screen. Fixed kinda-sorta. Feel free to delete posts 26 and 27.

We have in the last 15 years had 2 TT'S and 1 motorhome. We have never had to run the refrigerator while traveling. All have been absorption types. We just run it on shore power for 24 hrs, pack it up, and close for the day. The insulation plus cold items keeps everything cold enough until we reach our destination and power back up.

I suppose it is possible the newer residential units aren't as well insulated, but my hunch is that anyone who has a residential unit will be fine doing as we do.

i realize everybody's situation is different. I agree a residential refrigerator would keep things cold without having power to it while travelling. but here's why we run ours off the inverter while traveling. we have to keep the trailer in a storage lot and there is no power there, so the refrigerator does not run. when we go on a trip we turn the refrigerator on via the inverter, hook up to supply some 12vdc to the batteries, and take off. during this time the refrigerator is running and cooling down so that it is at temperature when we get to the camp site. this helps as we can go to the store, get what we want, and put it into the already cooled down refrigerator. as I stated earlier, when running off the inverter and connected to 12vdc from the truck the refrigerator runs all the time and the batteries still have charge in them.
