Default terrible interference when fridge comes on.

Anyone who's been on a run with me since I got the fridge will attest that it puts off some wicked RF interference when the fridge compressor kicks on. To the point where I have to squelch it out to about 75-85% of the travel on the squelch knob. With my HT, I can walk toward the rear of my 60 when the fridge's compressor is on and hear the intereference, I walk more sound. so it's got to be from the fridge.

No one else seems to have that issue (??)

What could be the culprit? Should I just throw on a Choke? any ideas on how to track this down would be great.

I have the fridge wired straight to the aux battery with 10g. it is however still on the cig lighter plug.
