Default refrig wiring question

I have a sportfish and the frig is currently wired to the house battery? Should it be wired to the fuse so it operates off the shore power and not battery when at dock? I would think this is the way to go but then what happens when I am running? How would it stay on< I also have a generator that I run when on the hook. Boat is a 2008 Rivera SF and BTW the Ice marker is wired to a fuse using shore power.

Make and model of the fridge would help. It could either be a 12 volt unit or a dual voltage 120Volt/12volt controlled by a module that senses the change in power source. A 12 volt unit would continue to operate at the dock via the battery which is on the charger.
