Fridge/Aux battery mounted on a skid ?
So I just received my Edgestar fridge, and I'm thinking about getting creative on how to power and secure it in two different vehicles, a '95 Bronco or our '04 Sequoia. Neither vehicle has a dual battery system, but I'm thinking that I'll want one to power the fridge while the vehicle is off, and without draining the starting battery. Here's my idea:
A carpeted plywood skid with a deep cycle sealed battery (no venting issues) mounted in a box at the rear, Fridge at the front. The skid would securely mount to the cargo area using factory tie down points. The aux battery would plug into the 40 amp trailer charging circuit already built into both vehicles- it charges when the vehicle is running, off when it's off, just as with our camping trailer. On a daily driver, it seems like this would theoretically power the fridge indefinitely, yet be swapped into a different vehicle in a few minutes.
