Hagar, I have two of these & beleive they are the best,
Bought the first one 70ltr in 89, as car fridge & still going strong, It is now used as a freezer on trips & rus for months at a time. Use it up in the NT when fishing, temps of 50/60 deg in the sun & freezes fish under these conditions.
They use 5amps . As expected under these conditions they run more than they are stopped so use a fair amount of power,as you move south this reverts the other way. While up north 2x120watt solar keep this running.
The second one 80ltr was aquired a few years later & is fitted into our camper trailer & runs as a fridge. 1x135 watt solar does the job here ok.
As stated above they are big units in external dimentions, but with that insulation & ability what else can beat them. They are used all over the world by our armed forces , even in their army tanks over in the deserts. Also by medical teams for the storage of vacines .
One great advantage is that there is no componets in the fridge compartment to suffer damage, unlike many others where the cooler vaines & fins are located in the box.
My units are perminatly mounted , the only time I remove the car unit is in the NT due to extreme heat. They both have been around aussie, criss crossed in many directions, cape york twice, simpson , & so on so have had the pounding of corrogations for many years & never fail.
Margaret, the owner is very obliging nothing is to much trouble,no matter where you may be .
PS, I have the volt & temp dials fitted , well worth it.
Cop You Later
I too have one and have had it for a few years now.....the only reason I no longer use it is the physical size. Now that I am traveling, I have no need for it.
It is a 60 litre upright and I used it all the time when I used to camp up the beach for a month at xmas time. It can be used as a fridge, freezer or both depending on the setting you choose.
I thoroughly recommend them and if you want some more info have a chat to Margaret at Norcoast http://www.norcoast.com.au/
