110/12 volt fridge.

Anyone has a 110/12 volt fridge in their unit? I'm thinking of installing one but is it worth the price? Does the 12 volt suck a lot of power?

I had an ice box in mine so there is no room or venting for a 3 way fridge plus I don't have propane hook up I the trailer anyway.

Hi Mesie

My friend installed a Nova Kool in his 17 ' Boler last fall. All of the new Trillium trailershave had these fridges installed since some where before or arond 2004. They appear to work great. My friend Dave said he has no regrets. Uses about 3 ampswhen running. Not a constant 3 amps, just when the fridge is in a cooling cycle. Most Trilliums haveeither a 75 watt or 100 watt panel on the roof to compensate for the small power draw of the compressor.

I have installed a Nova Kool in our 13 Scamp, and used a 100 watt solar panel to keep our group 27 battery topped off. I had the factory install a Truckfridge in our Lil Snoozy, and I have installed a Renogy 160 watt panel on the roof, and a monitor that shows we use an average of 55 amps of power per day.....no regrets.

I did due diligence and went with a TruckFridge. It's a company that caters primarily to long haul truckers. In my opinion it specked better than Norcold or Dometic. It comes in a good egg friendly size. It also has the DanFoss compressor which is considered the best by many.

I settled on the TF65 ACDC. We had it out for the inaugural weekend. Food was cold and not wet (cooler ice) and it was quiet and used remarkably little power. I'm now a total fridge convert.

Here's the one we went for....
