I have to run my RF47 (dual temp) on 1 or 2 or it gets too cold.
Experiment with bottles of water to find the best settings (before you go bush).
Buy an electronic temp gauge and try it in various spots in the fridge <$40 at Jaycar etc.
Cheers

You should set your fridge temp to whatever you find adequate generally around 4deg the the freezer section should be around -10deg from memory which is adaquate for camping most household freezers alot more powerfull and run at about -18 to -20

Thanks all, one question I do have, to add is the power pack that came with the unit (blue) when the lighter end goes into the socket it tends to push itself out and have found no power a couple of times while experimenting. any ideas??/ I will contact Evacool to find out if my concern is a one only or common, the spring in the end of the connection does appear quite strong...Max

preparing for the 6 months on the road with great enthusiasm.

This is a common problem with evakool power cords the spring is too stiff has been a problem for some time, because the amp draw on boost the spring needs to be rated so, they keep saying the problem has been fixed, should only happen with leads over 6 to 12 months old all new fridges iv'e seen have had soft springs, just call them they should send a new spring in the post.
