We have been looking up as many customer reviews as possible , normally Evakool gets very good reports , mind you every now and then just about every make seems to let a dud slip through . Nowadays most probs seem to be related to the digital controls , our older Waeco has the manual slides , never a problem , but its always an informed guess where to set it depending on weather ! . Asi said we are happy with the CDF 35 but wanted to keep it as a designated freezer for longer trips and use the new one as a fridge or on shorter journeys just use the G50 , cheers.

I bought the national luna ..dearer yes.. But so far really efficient and works as it should..very good insulation..
A few companies are trying to copy the national Luna system of 1 compressor and 2 thermostats..time will tell ..
I used to run 2 Engels but using 1 on freeze is very hard on batteries ifn you are not traveling or running generators every day
Just remember you get what you pay for..hopefully
Regards Danny

Yes Danny1 , thing is even Ozzy built or even European gear have parts made in you know where inside them . I would say most if not all major Fridge manufacturers don't want warranty claims/bad publicity going out of their front gates , and I hope I don't start a war , but even the much vaunted Engels have probs now and again ! , I suppose customer care or lack of then becomes a major issue .

Thanks Danny1 , a lot of my travels involve driving most of the day , then pulling up at dusk , enough miles to run the Freezer and Fridge and replenish the batteries I reckon , cheers..

EvaKool publish the current drawn by their fridges. I've found with my new RFE60 that the actual is twice or more than that, such that with 220 Ah of storage I couldn't use it in fridge/freezer mode.

The unit is now back at EvaKool for testing.

Sorry can't help with that fridge.

I have an RF47 fibreglass Evakool still running after 12 yrs.

My neighbour bought a 45ltr Techniice fridge over 18 months ago it works well and has a very low current draw.

A friend has had an Engel 38ltr Eclipse for a couple of yrs and says it's great and it's a lot cheaper than the metal case 40ltr.
