It uses less than an absorption fridge
, but still uses a lot of power. They seem to solve a LOT of the problems we have with our propane
fridges, and replace those dozen problems with just one problem: electricity.
It means either not going more than a day or two without plugging in (your tow vehicle counts if wired well), or have a good size battery
bank and either solar
or a generator
For many it’s well worth it. I’m on the fence. I don’t want to stress about battery
level and I currently have very low usage. I don’t really want to add that stress but when I consider how much trouble my absorption fridge
gives me...it may be worth switching.
You need to decide how you’ll camp most often, learn the power demands of the fridge and what it will take to supply them, then decide.
It’s definitely a great option, but won’t work for everyone.
