I plan to pick up two 5.1 cu ft chest freezers. One for a keezer and the other for fermenting and cold crashing. I need to run them on the same 20 amp circuit that powers the garage fridge. (My wife wont let me modify the fridge) Do you think I will have enough power? I dont know how many amps the freezers draw. The owners manual for the model I want to buy says that it needs to be plugged into its own 10 amp circuit so the max draw is certainly less than 10. I am guessing if all 3 were to kick on at the same time it would trip the breaker...
