I ran mine that way for years 365 days a year. 5 years ago I updated my systems and installed 50 amp service where I park mt trailer so I can turn on the AC the night before we roll out so I have a cool trailer when I am setting up so the dog doesnt cook to death waiting for everything to cool down.

Yes-- but, on my inverter, you need to change the setting to tell it's at 15 or 20 amp otherwise it may trip the breaker.

I would use dog bones. I would not use the hockey puck style 30 - 20 amp, as they promote more heat in a very small area.

If you only need to power the fridge, just unplug it and plug it directly into the extension cord. No adapter needed.

Refer still needs 12 volts DC from coach electrical system. Keeping battery charged would require 120 volts AC to the converter or inverter charger/
