(a) - Turning off they're fridges whenever they are not using them..

How many people are complaining about their Engel failing??

If/when they do fail I bet it has nothing to do with being switched on or off.

Turn to the last page and take a look at the "Sponsored by Energex" logo. Thats why they want you to leave it on.

and for those who didnt pick it... it was a joke :)

I find keeping it going allows me to cycle beers in and out of it without the nagging wife complaining about:
A) the amount of beer on the top shelf of the kitchen fridge taking up precious space

or

B) the amount of beer I drink

This way its a win win, excuse to keep the engel going and i can drink to my hearts content while tinkering in the garage!

Cheers,

Glenno
