In the event of a failure in the house battery, the 35 amp will keep the fridge running until I can run to town for a replacement.

In RV propane fridges there is a thermostat and on some models a permanently running defroster. Older models have mostly mechanical thermostat and no gimmicks, so they need very little power, but still do.
