You mentioned a downside to having an electric fridge
, but, there is also a very big downside to having an ice box. Quite a few years ago we bought a 13 ft Cardinal low liner equipped with a small ice box. Our first venture into a campsite on a three day week end proved most inconvenient. We needed more ice ! Just go to the local store and get some more, right? Nope. They were sold out. Now, had to drive over an hour away for some.
Guess who decided to get rid of the ice box? lol ! Bought an electric/propane fridge
and installed it. Worked great on either propane
or electric. Of course, I did flub the install slightly - ran a copper line for the propane
, put on the most beautiful flare for a flare nut, then discovered I forgot to slip the nut one the line before I did the flare. Par for the course for me. Sure would never knowingly buy a new trailer with and ice box again. Don
