I bought my '72 Trillium
last summer and have put thousands of miles on it already. However, the fridge
didn't work when I bought it. (I was told about it) This hasn't been a major concern. I have used one of the tips I noticed here and put 2-2litre frozen pop (soda) bottles in the lower compartment. It keeps the contents cold for 2-3 days and and I have drinking water when it thaws. I'm fairly certain the fridge
isn't original to the trailer because it has a wood frame around the outer edges to fill the gaps; the fridge
is smaller than the hole. I'm thinking about a replacement. I never use serviced sites but I would like to use a fridge in 12V mode. I have a stand alone 12V cooler but don't like to loose the extra space.
My question is; What are the battery
requirements for maintaining a 12V fridge? I can recharge the batteries while driving and/or start the car for a while each day for that purpose.Would one good Group 27 battery
do? I am also replacing my propane
regulator with a double and will carry 2-20lb tanks so propane
should be practical if the operation isn't too problematic. (I hear the fridge has to be quite level and that isn't always the case when I stop for the night.)
I know nothing about these fridges so any advice will be appreciated.
