Your having a good day uppy. Your spell check didn't work. Did you notice the thread headed "bugger spell check". Well done. That takes the cake.

If you have the room get separate fridges. We have a 49 and a 20. The 40 goes to all trips and the 20 only goes for week or longer trips. Our two sons started with a 60 lt fridge/freezer and also like our options. None of us tow anything.

Just an idea mate

That was supposed to read a "60 and a 20".

I should talk. Oops.

Phil, if you have a "60 and a 20" where does the "40 that goes to all trips" come from?
You two really are starting the day off badly! LOL

I agree about the bad start.
Unfortunately, spell check doesn't pick up on the correct use of the words "you're" and "your".
The contraction of "you are" = you're, and the possessive adjective "your".
You have to do that bit yourself.
An old rule to remember:-
If you're able to replace the word with "you are," you're saying you're. Otherwise, your only choice is your.

Brian

The easiest way of remembering all that is:

If you are talking about something "owned" then it's your. If not then it's you're. I never use the latter. I just use "you are".

Allan

I need a heart starter I think. You are correct. We have a 40 and a 20. The sons have the dual 60 each. Too many numbers for me.

Just went and cleaned the car. Yep. It had a heart attack with the shock. I took some photos to show the three batteries, new fuse box and associated accessory relays, the compressor location and the water and compressor outlet above the right rear drawer void. I will upload them as soon as I have a cuppa. Otherwise I will die!!! I need me cuppa.

Thanks for the correction.

I like the embarrassed smiley.

Sorry Phil, I was just making pedantic comment on the first word of your first post, which, as you say, should then have been "you are".

Thats fine Brian. That's how I took it. I was just saying how I remember to use which one. But I get lazy every now and then as does the rest of the population and just do it the American way.

Allan

Did the upload but with only one fridge installed. Not the best photographer though. They are in my profile. You can not see where the water and air outlets are as well as the compressor. R/H drawer void.

Why is it always the same people? How about you concentrate on providing useful, dare I say insightful information that answers the postee’s question and adds value to the forum.

Enough thanks! This response is becoming nothing but useless chit chat and will be treated as such.

Uppy, apologies and no doubt you'll get some useful info from the many helpful members of this forum

I must agree

But how else do we talk between members. Maybe we need a chit chat thread section. Just like in the 4d4Action and 4x4Earth forums.

Anyway. No more as requested.

Hi Uppy,

That's the "RV" series fridge. Not sure if it'll make any difference to your choice or not, but Its made in China, not here. We have an 80L & its done well so far. I'm very happy with it's cooling capabilities.

Ray's & BCF have been alternating their specials on them lately; Ray's will have an 60L while BCF have the 80L & vise versa. Both at $699

The current special includes a free cover, which is worth around $160 if you buy it separately. So all in all, its a pretty good buy.

Just be aware that the baskets don't come with it; they are an additional $50 for the 60L & $70 for the 80L.

The only downside to the 80L is getting it to fit into the CT, its HUGE! The 60L would be much easier to fit in to most CT's.

Hope this helps!

Kevin :=)

Yes - the RV range is not as good as the main range. I have a 25l for shorter weekend trips and it uses more power and doers not get as cold as my 55l ebay special. The RV has thinner insulation so the compressor runs more.

Having said that it does work fine for what I bought it for, as a smaller weekend trip fridge freezer.

Thanks for the heads up on the 25L Garry :)

Based on our experience with the 80L RV, I was considering buying a 25L as a dedicated freezer. Now very much reconsidering!

Our 80L out performs our old fridge; it gets cold quicker, runs cooler & draws less power.

We recently lost an Anderson plug south of Noccundra on the Warri Gate road on a mid 30's day & the fridge still showed 5 degrees when we hooked it up hours later at Tibooburra. Meat, milk, & more importantly, beer, were still all very cool! So the insulation on the 80L can't be too bad I guess.

Cheers,

Kevin :=)

I bought the 40L in their Father's day sale. Used it as a freezer and it is brilliant, very happy. I ususally run a 50L Waeco as my fridge and now the Evercool as a freezer. No idea what the combined current draw is.

Figure fresh food is a bit better than a battery that may draw down over-night, due to the current draw, and that will soon recharge in the morning.

Cheers

Thanks Duncan,

I'm looking for a dedicated freezer. I might have a look at the EvaKool 40L RV!

Cheers mate,

I can see that it could be a problem for those who camp & prop in the same place for days on end, but we only ever tour.

We're never in one place too long; so it should be fine if we run it directly off the cranking batteries (there's 2 in the Ute) while we're on the move (via an isolator & Anderson's), then off the 3rd battery while we're stopped overnight.

As Duncan said, the battery will charge quick enough the next day.
