    Best Fridge/Freezer I can get for my truck? Also go biggest you can afford?

    I have the ARB 50 and the ARB 82Qt/78L, If you are planning longer trips I would be looking at the 63 or the 82Qt, The 63 uses the same compressor as the 50 does which will use less power but the 82Qt is very impressive and due to it's shear size it holds the cold a ,lot longer when the power...

    The Official Dometic CFX Fridge Feed!

    It doesn't matter how weatherproof it is if it does not work properly, might as well buy an Esky / Coolbox.

    15L drink/lunch fridge freezers appearing

    Yeah great Idea, I bought one and I liked it that much I bought one for my brother, In the summer time when set to 3*c they use less than 180w running on AC per 24 hrs and in the winter time they use as little as 4.8Ah running on DC per 24 hrs, It's a great no fuss fridge/freezer, just get a...

    The Dometic CFX3 Mega Thread

    My main bug with this is that every other fridge and Dometic past models can be plugged in to both power sources at the same time, But I am so glad I went with ARB although they are also made by Dometic they are Streets ahead, Why this issue was not picked up during field testing I don't know...

    The Official Dometic CFX Fridge Feed!

    Mate there is no quick fix for the Dometic CFX3 range of fridges, They have a design fault and you can not plug in both power sources at the same time, Dometic's quick fix idea is to put a sticker on the new ones they sell warning you not to connect both power sources at the same time which...

    Who has the oldest, still working 12 volt fridge/freezer?

    One of my ARB's is only 4 and a half years old, but I know of someone who has had his Engel since the early 1980's, That said my ARB has been running 24/7 since I bought it on AC and DC power and never misses a beat.

    The Dometic CFX3 Mega Thread

    Well that is still next to useless, Virtually All 4x4 fridges are made to have both power sources connected at the same time As did the previous Dometic Models, This needs to be fixed, That sticker fixes nothing and is just way to cover their Ass, and as such your new fridge is also Faulty, You...

    Big battery charger / small generator. Looking for solution to not overload generator.

    My 35A battery charger will reach over 15v in all modes if it is left on for long enough, If I am Charging 2X 110Ah batteries I will put it on the mid setting which is between 16 to 20+/-A but it will reach over 15v if left in about 2 to 4 hours it can charge the batteries from around 75% SoC...

    What is the best portable power? Yeti, ARK? Is there another?

    I tried that with the ARB78L when it was set to 2*c and I shut it off for 50 hours and the temp came up by 13*c which is not bad in a constant Ambient temp 24/7 of 23*c, Seem like the bigger fridges retain their Coolness a lot better than the smaller fridges, All I had was the bottom covered...

    What is the best portable power? Yeti, ARK? Is there another?

    The PLB-40 charges fast enough, If you have it plugged in to the Cigar socket when you are traveling and put it on Solar when you make camp then a fridge is only going to use a small amount of power during the night and could be fully charged within an hour of being on the Solar.

    What is the best portable power? Yeti, ARK? Is there another?

    That's right John, I bought a 5200mah battery for my mobile phone back in May 2012 and it is still going good that's 2980 days / times it's been charged and I have used it to provide my internet connection ever since then,

    I’m still not happy

    Funny thing was when I ordered those CD's from the US, I also ordered a load of Baffin and Sorel Boots from the US and they were here in under a week, And I ordered something 50 miles away and it took 10 days to get here, With all of the above it just goes to show how mixed up things are at the...

    I’m still not happy

    Where things are made is not an indication of the build quality, Needless to say that a lot of companies sell and import junk.

    I’m still not happy

    This is a Global problem, It's not a vendetta against you, Due to the CV-19 many companies are having to operate with reduced numbers of staff add to that the Couriers and postal companies are being overloaded because everyone is ordering on line and they are having to deal with an 100% spike in...
