I've been in boats that use the chest type fridge. The one I remember it was built into the galley counter. You had to move stuff off the lid to get in and when the lid was closed there was galley counter space.

Don't know how you would manage that our trailers.

When I talked to the Trillium Trailer guys, Joe told me that it should run about 7 - 10 days on the 12volt without recharging the batteries (2 - 6 volt).

Hmmm. I doubt that very much. Too many variables for one thing. How hot outside. Whats in the fridge. How often is fridge opened?

I have a 12v compressor fridge (norcold)in my boler. I run 2 deep cycle 12v batteries (each 110 AH)and a 70 watt solar array. I also wired a computer fan to blow over the coils when the fridge comes on. The batteries can keep up with the solar array but without the array i would say probably a few days both batteries would be very low depending on how hot it is outside.. Biggest grip with the 12 v compressor fridge is the noise. When it comes on it vibrates the boler so ear plugs dont work. This spring im going to modify the fridge and isolate the compressor motor with softer rubber or hang the compressor on rubber mounts. Other than that the fridge works pretty good.
