I’ve ordered a Novakool fridge for our van conversion. It should be able to run on 12v as well as 110v through the invertor.
- Invertor (Xantrex Freedom XC PRO 2000)
- 2x Battle Born 100 Ah 12V LiFePO4 Deep Cycle Battery (installed in parallel)
I’m unsure whether I should wire the fridge up to 12v, 110v or both.
The fridge will automatically switch power to 110v if available. So my feeling says it’s a bad idea to wire it up to the breaker box behind the invertor. (which (I think) would result in a 12v -> 110v -> 12v transformation)
I could however wire the fridge into the breaker panel of the incoming shore power. Is there any real benefit of doing this? This way the battery wouldn’t be used at all when on a powered campsite, but is there actually a benefit for doing this?
