Howdy folks...

Just a quick one

I am looking to do a trip shortly & wondering whats the best vibration dampening to go under the fridge? high density rubber? blue cell foam?

I have the fridge on a sliding tray, with ventilation from above & behind (left behind the fridge an open cavity). any othert tips?

Cheers in advance!

I find if the suspension on the car is any good it's better to mount the fridge as solid as possible. ie: strap it down with no additional rubber/foam other than the feet on the fridge.
Other tips: For reliability & a longer run time, chop the standard connectors off & fit Clipsal or Anderson plugs with upgraded wiring.

I run both a Waeco and an Engel (one as fridge, the other freezer) and found that if you strap them down tight enough, that should do the trick.

Hmmmm...a mobile Motel!!!


My frdige just stands behind the passengers front seat within a frame of sorts. Correct bush tyre pressures and a comfortable Nissan suspension sees that there is minimal vibration :-)

My 8 year old Eva Kool instructions suggest a 50 mm High density foam layer.
