PSW Inverter in a 33c?

posted this in the wrong forum, never got an answer.
Has anyone put a PSW inverter in a 33c and wired it to the refrigerator for a residential refrigerator? We put a French Door refrigerator in our 2016 33c a year ago, i am thinking of wiring in a PSW inverter and running the refrigerator off it while we on on the road, but it's not a simple plug and play operation because the wiring for 110 doesn't go through the inverter for that circuit. On the diagrams i see a "throw in wire #5" that runs the refrigerator but I am not sure how it can be routed to the inverter. Anyone do it? I am not looking to get a massive battery bank for boondocking, just want to keep the refrigerator running while on the road running off the alternator using the existing 2 battery bank.

Could it possibly be as simple as locating the power feed to the circuit in the electrical panel and relocating the power source from the inverter in there to that circuit?

Bingo!
Yes, I think it is that simple.

We have a 37F that came with residential fridge OEM. With that they automatically add two more 12v AGMs, a 2000w PSW Magnum inverter and 100w solar panel.

I could be wrong, but all AC power runs through the inverter and it has a built in transfer switch. When on gen or shore power AC power passes through the inverter but even if you leave the inverter on the inverter’s transfer switch idles the inverter. Some loads are connected to the main AC breakers and others to the inverter’s. When not on gen or shore power the inverter powers only the loads connected to it.

Again, that may be just my lack of understanding of how thins work, but that is how I think it works.

I should add...

Our 33c has a 1000 MSW Inverter std equipment, so I would just need to swap that out for a 1000W PSW (plug and play) same brand and style, which i have found. (Yes it will deliver enough power for the refrigerator)
