I've been running a Finch 3 way fridge
for quite a few years now. In the back of the car it runs on 240v from an inverter powered from the second battery (cranking). I cover the lid of the fridge
with something insulating and run an elastic strap over it to make sure it doesn't bounce open and lose heat. I can also leave it on the inverter for a couple of hours when we are parked and all seems OK though I'm not dependant on that battery for starting.
But it sounds like you aren't getting enough 12v juice so you probably wouldn't have enough to run an inverter.
On gas it has only stopped working once and it proved to be a blocked gas line. Try some compressed air.
Also, I understand it is fruitful to invert the fridge
and shake it. I do this every so often as "maintenance".
Hope this is vaguely useful.
