Mine is a 1000 watt Honda. I only use it to charge the battery. I have a two way fridge ( AC and propane ). I'd go with a cooler and ice and forget the dorm fridge if I didn't have propane. Every time you open the dorm fridge, you dump all the cold air out onto the floor.
You won't have happy campers surrounding you if you run a generator 24 hours to keep the fridge running.

I was just curious in case of a power outage at home. No way would I want to listen to a generator for hours while camping, my kid is loud enough lol.

I endured a four-day power failure mid winter once, but I didn't have the trailer then.
If it happens again, I'm moving into the trailer, with propane furnace and fridge and the Honda can charge the battery for the 12VDC lights and water pump. Warm and cozy.
