well after some great driving last weekend at m/s we decided if we didnt want to drink warm water/beer/softdrink we will have to buy another fridge for the back of the jack.we have a 90ltr weaco but thats mounted in the camper.done a heap of ringing around to find a decent price i couldnt believe what some prices were.$99 20ltr $70 12 ltr and so on.came across a 45 ltr weaco at big w for $158.we thought well thats not to bad just have to wait till more stock comes in.i decided to ring repco to see what they had.$99 for a 35 ltr with wheels and a handle the lit opens 3 ways a little lid that opens half the fridge or the main lid can be opened from either side.we really happy.

We've got a 35 litre Waeco "Tropicool" cooler/warmer doohickey. It does draw heaps of current, and isn't great at pulling down the temp. We also have the EvaKool DT47 in the rear of the car. When we leave home, we put stuff (like drinks and sangas) that are ALREADY cool into the little Waeco and have it on the back seat near to us. Keeps things that are already cool just fine. As the days go on, we transfer stuff out of the freezer section in the EvaKool into the fridge and let it thaw. We then transfer cold stuff for the day into the Tropicool.

We stop for drinks somewhere along the way and they go into the EvaCool to chill. Once chilled - into the Tropicool. We keep the cycle going so that we only ever have day stuff in the Tropicool. We turn it off at night.

Nice little system - and it works well for us. :)

Even after you've slandered me on a public forum I will have the decency to try to help LMAO.

Dick Smith has a little thermo cooler for about $30 that holds 9 cans. I bought one for my son to use in his car and it works well. Just make sure you put cold stuff in it, they take a long time to cool stuff down.

have a scope of the last 2 months or so, jeff in WA has one of the 45waecos, and tricked it up nicely to work real well, he has parts list and instructions in the thread.
Reckons it works real well now.

G,day, ive got one of those waeco 32 litre jobs, works well for day trips. As mentioned above, they work better if your drinks etc are already cold and will even make them colder, no dramas with draining the battery while your on the go.. Ive had cold drinks all day at Stokton......
