Hi all,
My son in Regents Park, Qld has just acquired a Waeco CF35 fridge with no power lead and he has no idea if it works or not. He was hoping to make up a jumper wire to the two pins in the 12v input. BUT he has no idea which is positive - the top or bottom one. Can anyone help please. I am in SA and have an Engel so I am useless to him.

Mike

Most bigger camping stores carry replacement leads. Best grab one of those I would think.

Thank you Derek,
Of course that is his intention if the fridge works, however it will be $35 down the drain if the fridge is a dud. All he wants to do now is find out if it works.

Mikee. I am sure that if your son took the fridge into a weaco dealer they would be happy to test it for him. I did this with my weaco 35 at Anaconda. it turned out that there was a bent pin fridge and they fixed it no cost. It would be better than trying what you are thinking and risk more problems.

Mike.
Both of my waeco fridges have the positive on the bottom of the plug.
Cheers.

Thanks very much Vince, that is all we needed to get us going. Son made up a jumper lead and put positive to bottom pin. Fridge is a goer so now he will buy a lead.

Mike as an aside. I borrowed my mates 35L Waeco for my recent trip to use as a freezer. Worked a charm and no loss of cold. Ran at -10 deg for 2 weeks with not a murmur of problems. Beats the crap out of my 19L one I usually use as a freezer and I'm sure with a lot less draw as well.

Make sure you give back more than you take
