Like I have written twice, there is a sub panel with all the AC C/B's the come off the inverter and one is labeled "Refrig-Vacuum".
I can't see some aftermarket install doing that.
Not sure what else I can tell you to establish it is a factory install.
I am guessing that maybe someone at WGO got the idea that some or a lot of folks didn't like running the fridge on propane while driving so put the fridge behind the inverter. Could have been a marketing decision.
For what it is worth a year or more ago on a forum I stated that most all RV's DO NOT have the gas/elect fridge wired behind the inverter. I was quickly corrected that a number of Winnie's are wired that way.
I glad your fridge is not wired behind the inverter.
As to your earlier mention of perhaps the outlet was wired for an optional residential fridge. Back in 2005, when they were making the 2006 models, I can't think of any low to medium priced Diesel Pushers that offered a residential fridge. Maybe in the $350k to $500K rigs there was. But in the $175K to $250K range I don't think so.
