Inverter Recommendation for Powering Outdoor Refrigerator


I am thinking about purchasing a power inverter to run my outdoor kitchen fridge while on the road. The battery is a little over 20 ft from the fridge. If I run extra heavy gauge wire do you think this would work? The fridge is enclosed while traveling do you think the inverter would get to hot. Just a thought since my drinks get hot while traveling. Thanks in advance

What you are asking about is very possible, but you'll want to consider how much amperage the fridge draws to see if your charging system/battery will handle the load. Going with heavier gauge wire is definitely recommended. Especially since you mentioned it's a distance of 20 feet. How heavy does depend on the amperage draw of the fridge as well.

The Wagan inverter part # WC3720 would be a great choice for this as it can put out up to 1,000 watts of continuous power. One of it's intended uses is for a small refrigerator like what you have as well. It has 3 AC sockets available too.
