In answer to your question.
The big problem with any fridge in a camper trailer ,while travelling is the heat build up under the covers due to lack of fresh air circulation
While a compressor fridge will be more tolerant ,it will also suffer severely in hot weather.,
It too needs adequate air circulation.
The heat under the covers can get very high & could reach a point where the electronics of a compressor fridge could be permanently damaged.
I would not be very keen to run
a 3way under covers on any power source
There really is no safe, simple solution with that set up when travelling.
The best you can do is get the fridge as cold as possible prior to travelling,well filled so you have reserve cold stored,even frozen bottles of water if you have the space
As well insulated as possible from the heat
When stationary @ camp, then the other points for best performance of 3ways become very relevant
Your problems are not the same as in vans etc & are not easily solved.
On forums too many people make all embracing statements which may not cover the actual OP's situation
