Hi Scottx

The webpage was http://explorerfridgefreezer.com/ it worked last month. Not the first time he has forgotten to renew hosting account.
If I get a chance today I'll hunt around some old paperwork for a phone number.

I purchased an Explorer DC65 late last year

It appears the website is down. It was dated in any event . References were to earlier models that did not include built in 240 volt capability and some other minor things. When I visited to collect the fridge last November Steve Cochrane did have plans to give the website a makeover.

This is the first of the emails I got from him. It is possibly (likely) that some info will be dated. Prices may have changed. It should have enough leads to establish contact.

They really are superlative fridges (I rarely rate anything better than good). I purchased a DC65 without any extras. I did a preview post on the forum a while back. One day I may do a blog article on it

Hi ,
Thank you for your enquiry. We are happy for the fridge to be exposed to the elements. There are only two concerns when using the fridge in the open, firstly don't drown it in a river crossing (don't laugh it has happened) although if this happens the fridge can be easily brought back from the dead and secondly with dust the motor room needs to be cleaned with compressed air paying particular attention to the thermostats. This cleaning doesn't have to happen often its more preventative maintenance than anything so once a year should be fine or do it as part of your pre trip maintenance. I'm being a little paranoid hear but I know how important a fridge is in the desert.
As you know we have 3 sizes, however we have new models now, with a larger capacity whilst maintaining the same external dimensions and using the same power as the superseded models. The new sizes are, a 65 litre (42 fridge and 23 freezer), a 85 litre (57 fridge and 28 freezer) and a 110 litre (75 fridge and 35 freezer). They all have the same footprint being 820mm by 520mm, the DC65 is 430mm high, the DC85 is 530mm high and the DC110 is 660mm high.

Prices are as follows:
DC65 (formerly DC56) $2100.00
DC85 (formerly DC70) $2200.00
DC110 (formerly DC95) $2400.00

These prices do not include freight but do include a panel plug for vehicle installation, an inbuilt Danfoss 240volt/24volt/12volt controller, 2 led's, a fan, power/economy switch, dual thermostats, circuit breaker, marine grade aluminium cabinet and fibreglass liners for the fridge, lid and capping the freezer compartment is lined with marine grade aluminium.
This is all the equipment that you need except for wiring from battery to fridge location (we recommend 6mm cabling) and how you secure the fridge to the vehicle. We strongly recommend securing the fridge to the vehicle whilst in transit. Trust me you don't want an Explorer floating around in the event of an accident. Our fridges do not require an insulation/transit bag in fact they make them less efficient.
Regarding freight if you are unable to pick up from the factory a fee for Packaging and freight will apply, $60-$100 covers most of NSW. We will confirm a freight price at the time of ordering.
We also offer some optional extras for our fridges as well that may be of interest to you as well. These include:
Spring Strut (for holding the lid open) $25.00
Thermometer (for the fridge compartment) $99.00
Thermometer (for the freezer compartment) $99.00
Voltmeter (shows voltage levels at the fridge) $45.00
Amp meter (shows amperage that the fridge is drawing) $45.00
Fan switch (turns fan on and off) $25.00
Basket (mounts in the fridge compartment) $55.00
With regards to fridge slides (probably not relevant to you as your truck is an open tray back) we don't stock them but Black Widow 1800294369, Off Road Systems 0246476322, Platinum Gear 0756657600 and 4WD systems 0883690033 all have slides to suit.
I have attached a list of Explorer advantages for your interest and a copy of a recent letter sent to us by one of our customers as well. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to email us or call us on 1300 134 328 (for the price of a local call) also I will call to discuss your other concerns.
