Question about Refrigerators
The motor should not be running continuously. If it is, then it is because the internal temps are not going down low enough for the thermostat to shut the compressor down. If the temp is not low enough, the temperature of the coolant returning to the compressor is higher than what it should be and that the cool refrigerant returning to the compressor cools that motor down. If it does not, the motor will over heat and often shut down for cooling.
Ice buildup on the evaporator coils will cause a warmer running fridge. If the unit has a self defroster then it is not working and responsible for the anomaly.

You can fit a relay connected through the vehicle ignition that will prevent the fridge running on 12V unless the motor is running, this way you will not drain the battery.
