I really appreciate the no holds attack on the so called sacred cows of 4wd marketing, that clouds the judgement. And all the other miscellaneous info.

Just one more thought

MAX AMP DRAW ENGEL 40L AND SMALLER 2.5A P/H
MAX AMP DRAW WAECO 50L AND SMALLER 5.7A P/H

MAX AMP DRAW ENGEL 60L AND LARGER 4.5A P/H
MAX AMP DRAW WAECO 60L AND LARGER 6.6A P/H

I HAVE DONE A BIT OF RESEARCH BEFORE PURCHASING A FRIDGE MYSELF, AMP DRAW WAS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME AS I USE A SOLAR PANEL TO CHARGE BATTERIES AS I STAY IN ONE LONGER THAN MY BATTRIES CAN LAST , JUST A THOUGHT.

Hmmmmmm......

Can't and won't dispute that.

My Waeco CF 35 draws 3.1 Amps over 12 volts. Book running time is 17%..... can't confirm that part though.

Sorry Funnyone but a low current draw doesn't mean it uses less power over an hour. Even though the 40 L Engel may only use 2.5 amps, you will find that it needs to run almost twice as long as a fridge that has better insulation to keep it at the same temp. As an example: An Autofridge may have a current draw of 3.5 amps but at the end of the day it will have only run half the time of the Engel, effectivly using 30 % less power.
The single most important feature of a fridge is it's insulation & both Waeco & Engel (amoung others) chose not to put enough in.

Guess I had better weigh in for Waeco and save the Wolf some typing!

CF40 has performed flawlessly over last 10 months.
