12v vs 110v reefer for liveaboards

12V Reefer fine for live-aboard. I deicated a cheap ferro-ressonant charger, through a sacrificial battery (free from another boat) to power mine while dockside, then removed the charger/battery to cruise. The battery merely acts as a filter for the charger output.
No need for 110v.
Regards,
Gord
