12v vs 110v reefer for liveaboards

I have an Alder Barbour Super Cold machine withan evaporator. I use it 24/7 and love it. It will freeze meat, keep the beer nice and cold, everything else fresh. I use parafin sealed milk and only put in reefer when I open it and that works fine (tastes good as well.) Power is the more important consideration. I have a 120 amp alternator, regulator and Trojan T-105 six volt batteries (4) as a house bank with a dedicated 12 volt Group 27 as a starting battery. I am considering a 110 Watt solar panel asa back up to engine charging.
