I have recently purchased a Waeco 80L fridge mounted on a M.S.A. drop slide.
I want to buy a length of coiled cable to connect it to the fridge, but have not been able to find any. I have looked on the ABR & Jaycar site & have not found anything.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance, Regards G.T.

I'm not sure a "coiled "cable is in the best interest of your fridges efficiency, unless of
large diameter wire. The shortest cable possible will give the lowest voltage drop.
Avoid the cig lighter type connections. cheers.....oldbaz.

G.T.

If that doesn't work just search for "curly cords" the company's name is PROCONNECT

Maybe these give you an idea. It's a bit of a pain isn't it. This works for us.

The black cable is the 12V DC one. The white/grey one is the 240V cable.

Hi PJR,
I noticed that you don't have tie down straps on your fridge, what keeps it in place. Have you bolted it to the frame or is it just lose.

Sorry for the delay Andy. I've been sanding the ceiling after repairing holes where lights have been removed.

You are correct. The fridge is bolted to the slide. I am also waiting on the boss doing some modification to the fridge cover and then it will be fitted as well. Should have done it years ago. But priorities were elsewhere.

Cheers

I've just used the cable it came with, but for protection (after killing a few cables), ive encased it in convoluted tubing. works fine.

I have the same set up.....ie 80L waeco on the drop slide.

GT,

I'm sure there was a thread on this subject within the past 6 months or so.

Couple of posters suggested a flexible conduit(not convoluted black stuff) but I can't remember the brand name. Couldn't find the thread in an earlier search either,

Bob.

Seen it all, Done it all.
Can't remember most of it.
