On a related note...is there any harm done by storing these ice containers in the fridge (Dometic 1.9 3way) in between being transferred to my cooler which I will use for day trips? I can't find it, but I could swear I read somewhere that you shouldn't put block ice in the fridge. Any particular reason this wouldn't work?
I'd say no, go ahead,
but it hit me, maybe they meant block ice that wasn't in a container of some kind, in which case as it melted, it would leak all over the place
and probably out the front edge of the fridge--or you'd have a flood when you opened the door.
INSIDE your container of choice, shouldn't be a problem at all.
But someone may know better, and I'm all ears! YMMV
