Most are getting 2000 watt inverters. Lets you use several things at once.

I already have a 1500, I guess I will give it a try, and hope!

"Hope" won't solve your problem, having a suitably sized inverter (which apparently you already have), a battery reserve capable of adequately powering that inverter, and a suitably sized means of recharging that battery bank will. So aside from the inverter, do you? [emoticon]

My 21 cu. ft. Samsung runs off two 6 volt batteries with a Xantrex Freedom Xi 1000 pure sine wave inverter. The refrigerator is the only appliance that runs off the inverter.

For how long and how do you recharge?

Fromn what I understand the 1000's will run the fridge. How much other stuff I don't know. I have a 2000 but an RV type (Electric/Propane) Absorption cooling unit.

THe 2000 I have is the Xantrex Freedom 2000xc They make a 1000XC if you do not want to run the microwave it should do Get the remote as well. Install was easy though the "Quick connectors" they use for the 120 volt connections SUCK.

Taked to a Xantrex specialist yesterday.. He said those are their #1 complaint

Should be ok with 1000 watt 12ga wire though. Did not like my 10ga wire.

Mine runs of a Magnum Dimensions Pure Sine Wave inverter, 1000 watts for my Samsung 21 cu.ft. Like C.B. said, it's the only thing running off it. Seems to work pretty good.

I've got a 2 battery bank. Dealer installed. We very seldom, well ... never, camp without shore power. Dealer said the tow vehicle will keep the battery charged while in transit, and the battery runs the refrigerator. And so far, no problems at all. Freezer shows -2F and refrigerator shows +36F. Hasn't changed since we bought the camper.

Most refrigerators don't use much power while running
It's the start up load of the compressor that means using a large wattage inverter

Inverter that is heavy, having large transformer coils,
Provide more reliably, and ability to start the compressor than, light weight chopper style inverters
