2nd Inverter to run outside fridge?

Has anyone installed a 2nd inverter to help cool down their outside fridge while travelling?

I have (well, ordered...) a new 29.5BHDS. Does the outdoor TV outlet have power from the onboard inverter? Might be easier to tie into this outlet instead of adding a 2nd inverter.

You may want to contact JAYCO to verify. service@jayco.com and give them your purchase order number since you do not have a VIN yet.

I have a 357mdok, brought home last week. I can check but my guess is that the inverter is only connected to the fridge.
I maybe able to check later tonight.

Well, I just tried mine out. Seems like my inverter powers the whole RV.
May not be the case for yours but it was for mine.

So, both of my fridges will be running.

I will have to check exact details later. Only 2 batteries and there was 1 when I went for the PDI. I had them put the other one in. I do not plan to boondock so I may not add more for now. Standard lead acid marine batts.

Inverter is only a 1200watt. I did not check batteries yet, but the 2 the dealer gave me must not be very many AH.
