You will be fine on that with just the converter going as well. I trip the big breakers just to make sure should the ac come on.

I usually give it 2 days to acclimate so I can load it ahead of my trips and leave it on auto in case of a failure with it loaded.

You will not hurt anything by running the fridge on shore power. I do that all the time.

Yep...you will only pull 300-400 watts to run the fridge. If you are concerned, run it on propane as it will use very little propane.
