I just recieved my weaco FF90 L today and had a heart attack when I saw the size of the box , I reasured myself it would be mostly packaging and that the fridge would be much smaller . WRONG same size as the box , Does anyone know if the 70 L is much smaller in size ? or are they somilar with some extra depth to the 90 L
I was thinking of selling it to get a 70 L if there was a huge diffrence .
another thought was to remove the handles and fit it with child restraint brackets to tie it down . This would give 50 MM back spaceVenus Bay

I meant fuel (too many yanky tv shows). It would be Truckster doin' the filling to double the value of the gq. 80's are already worth heaps!

BTW I got a new photo of the Prado. One pulled up in my street indentical to what I have on order apart from the bullbar so I fired off a digital shot.

"The Kia" has already seen sand with 7000 km on the dial last September on Bribie Is. We did pass a couple of "diggers" though....gotta wonder about those overweight vehicles on the sand ;-P

Got two fridges delivered today. The 70l was very dirty on top, but otherwise as new. The 30l was a bit worse - crack in case about 3 inches long, basket a bit rusty, some corrosion around the dial, but the price was right. Put the 30l straight into the car, seems to be working well. The 70l was for a mate.

LOL Eric. What were you expecting? A 90l fridge is a BIG fridge. You'd need a 150l esky to get the same food storage space!!!

Anyway, look on the bright side. If you can get it to fit without having to leave the kids behind (because you have to remove the rear seats), you'll have enough food and coldies in there to do a double crossing without having to stop for supplies. :-)Smile, you're on ExplorOz

Eric,
Just got my cool-room today. FF70 is 79cms x 50. When you put the handles on it goes from 79 to nearly 100, but that's just where the handles stick out. Two small dents, less than 5c coin-size, a small chip, and no scratches to speak of. Having said that, these are certainly not new. Mine was a bit grubby on arrival but easily cleaned up. I reckon staff had used 'em and now they've got the nice new model to knock around before they flog them off cheap. Also, I think a bit of plastic welding has been done around the socket on mine as the surface looks bubbly and uneven. No wonder the girl (Robbie?) wasn't very forthcoming when I enquired about their condition. Oh, and they sent me a square plug to go into a socket with round pins, so I haven't even fired mine up yet. After two phonecalls, they say they'll send me a new plug tomorrow 'cos they're too busy today, so I might actually have it working by Monday. Can't complain at $660 s'pose, but customer service needs looking at up there.

Hi Eric,

I have a 90 Lt too. Don't get scared, theres only two of us and we still seem to fill the fridge for anything over two days camping. Can't do without the beer.

I believe that the 70 lt is the same foot print, just not quite as tall.

I haven't had any problems with mine except that on really hot days it was cutting out in the back out the ute while travelling. When I stopped it continued to cut in and out for a bit until it cooled down. I will have to sort out some better ventilation, as the side windows of the canopy do seem to be enough.

90 Lt is fine, two slabs of drinks (beer/softdrink) plus all the usual food stuffs. Just top up the cans each night before bed and they will be ready the next morning. I have also found that after 24 hours running the battery is still at 11.8 volts, so I am hoping I would get nearlly upto 48 hours from my Exide Extreme.

Cheers

Andrew

Got my FF70 today can't complain its in good condition and works well. Has anyone tried the device called a BATTERY CURRENT SAVER put out by VGR Electronics, it is a 12 volt timer to switch the supply to the fridge on/off every 30 minutes so the fridge does less start up cycles and wasting power on start current and running time waiting for head pressure to build up for the refrigerant to work and if the fridge is down to temperature the fridge thermostat works in the usual way
