The problem is no one sells RV refrigerators in Saudi Arabia, but if it is possible to run the refrigerator on a converter from 120v AC to 12v DC thru two or three deep cycle batteries while the car charges the batteries, I can only keep the generator on for 8 hours at a time then let it cool of for one hour and then turn it back on.
I know it sounds strange I have not opened the refrigerator yet and I don’t think i will find someone to be able to fix it if it needed any repair, which is why I’m looking into changing it to what would be available.

Just from curiosity, our local Craigslist showed a 1979 Argosy 27 that needed a fridge (missing). You wouldn't have just purchased yours through that method, would you? I only ask because a '79 Argosy 27 is not that common, and the listing disappeared about the same time you made your first post. If it's the same one, I inspected it a few weeks ago, and can let you know what I found.

We love pictures...
When you make a post, after you enter the text, and before you click "submit reply", scroll down to the area that says "additional options". You will see a button that says "manage attachments". Click that button, and another small window will open.
Click one of the "browse" buttons, find the file where your picture is located, and click that file. You will then be taken back to the small window, where you will click "upload attachment". After your computer has finished uploading the picture, you can click "close this window", then hit "submit reply".
Providing the photo is of proper size and configuration, you will have posted a picture with your post.

My airstream

Here is a good pic of the airstream and you can see the fridge the out side needs paint and some work but the inside is not bad but I will be updating every thing.
