Running a fridge on a mooring...

I was getting ready to pull the fridge (small dorm type) and the microwave out of my new to me boat because I do not plan on being around shore power but I just figured that I would pose this question.

What are the odds that I could run a fridge on an inverter and use a solar panel to maintain the batteries? I have a 15-20 minute transit out of the cove on diesel for charging if that matters.

As I said...I was already planning on tossing the fridge and using ice but I figured that it was worth asking to see if anyone had success first.

Thanks,
