The PO of the Scamp
I just bought made some "adjustments" (hard to call them modifications) to the electrical
system. In short (no pun intended) it looks like he simply removed the 12-volt system and wired the whole thing for 110/115v shore power. He installed a small 110v refrigerator
, which means of course nothing will work unless I'm plugged in, so food isn't going to stay cold while I'm driving.
My dilemma is where to start? I'm on a low-to-no budget plan here, and investing in a 3-way fridge
and paying someone to rewire and set up the propane
lines would kill me. What I have to do anyway is get the wiring sorted out properly with a battery
and charge controller. If I get lucky and find some equipment used, I may try to add a 100 watt solar panel
and inverter. So my question is, does anyone out there use a fridge
that runs on 12v dc only? There are some nice compact models out there, and that would take care of the driving issue.
Or should I just get an icebox? Seriously. Any thoughts and advice greatly appreciated.
