I have read many posts about the climate rating of 3 way fridges, but all of the 3 way fridges I have seen in the camping stores around Brisbane are Climate Class N. Does anyone actually have a Class T chest type 3 way Fridge, or do these tropicalised fridges only come in upright fridges for Carvans??

Also, for those with the Repco 3 way fridge, do they have a climate class rating on the back?

I recently bought a well used 10yo Chescold F40 (F60 similar) and I can highly recommend it. I used it over Xmas in 40 degree heat and kept meat frozen and beer real cold. I understand that new 3-way fridges don't perform anywhere near as well as the old ugly Chescolds.
The only problem I need to address is that the gas flame blows out in windy conditions. I need to make some sort of wind-shield, or just use it inside my car with the window slightly open.
The Repco fridge packaging gives a performance reference, but it only goes down to about 3 or 4 degrees in ideal conditions (~20-25 deg ambient).

FWIW, Repco fridge ref data is at 32 Deg C. Repco is a fridge, Chescold a fridge/freezer.

I noticed one of the "old ugly" chescolds on ebay for $100.

As far as I am aware, the only absorbtion/3 way type fridges that come rated in T class are the Dometic upright fridges.
The Dometic/Electrolux ‘T’ rated fridges available in Australia are:
RM2453 120 litres
RM2553 150 litres
RM4601 184 litres
RGE400 220 litres

The RM2350 90 litres is rated as 'ST' but performs virtually up to the 'T' rating.

There is not an electric upright fridge that is T class rated.
In chest type electric fridges evakool is T class rated.
