Hi there,

The fridge will definitely not draw 480 amps. Even a central AC on 240 volts does not draw more than 30 amps. I believe its going to be dividing 40 watts / 12 volts. That is 3.33 amps and it may draw up to 6 amps during the start up of the compressor motor. The fridge will run maybe half the day or even less on its cooling cycle so lets just say it is a full 6 amps and 6 amps x 12 hours = 72 amp hours a day and that would be a conservative estimate. The rest of the math will depend on your storage capacity in your batteries. Hope this helps!
