How long to get res fridge running.

We’re considering heading out to a more remote state park for a few days, but don’t want to bring the trailer home and plug in overnight so as not to advertise our departure. Thinking of taking the gen out to my storage area to get the fridge cooled off. Seems too much of a draw to attempt
starting it as we’re towing. Anyone else every deal with this?

Several hours.
I grew up in the Pleasant Grove area of East Dallas then lived in Mesquite till 80 moving to East Tx. People will know your gone pretty quick . I would just bring it home & plug in.
What SP is still open ? We keep ours out at the farm and we head out there just about everyday that it hasn't been raining, kinda our pvt SP. Hope this gets better as we had Easter planned camping at Wife's Sister ranch with some great bass lakes near Ennis.

Mine is cooled off in less than an hour. However, we load the fridge with our stuff that is already cooled off from home as the fridge is cooling down. Much faster to cool down and area that's already filled with cold stuff than to cool off a huge empty fridge then open it and let all the bought air out.

Thanks for the replies. We actually decided to skip the trip. I am working on an intermittent sore throat so decided to stick around. For the first poster, we were planning to go to Caprock Canyon. Nearly all Texas state parks are still open for camping. Just no gift shops, group areas, gate attendants etc.
