    From memory I saw vitrifrigo fridges, although they may have had Waeco units. Most of the decent compressor fridges use danfoss compressors so it's just a matter of choosing a fridge with good...

    I think he's talking about putting something on the ladder rungs to stop you slipping off. Some grip tape would be fine if you find it's dangerous I guess.
