I want my refrigerator to run while towing

Iíve been around long enough to know this but what should my battery switch be set at to allow it to keep running while I am towing the rv? I have a residential frig.

On our rig there is a hot(red) lead off the batteries that goes thru a switch mounted right behind them then thru 150amp resettable fuse and on to inverter. Switch should show green when on at top. Make sure your inverter is on too and verify fridge with shore power unplugged. Not sure on all model trucks but I think most have a relay that kills charging power to trailer charge circuit when ignition is off

If you have a Chevy truck make sure you unplug the cord when you turn your ignition off as everything stays hot.
