90 degree cap for standard refer?

I was just talking to a salesman who casually said that non water cooled refrigerators stop working if the ambient temperature is greater than 90 degrees... Is this true?

Thanks,
J

Don't think so. Mine is air cooled and has held up in Florida summers.

How are you setup sir?

I am barely treading water with all of the data out there. I am pretty poor and need more real life data points.

I bought a used norcold unit last week but it turned out when the seller said "22 inches wide" he meant "22 inches wide except for the lip by the door that is 23 inches wide" and I only have 22 inches. I should have double checked but I got lost in the delta on my way to the guy's house and was tired and cranky when I verified the unit worked. Sigh.

Standard Waeco (Adler Barber) unit. Evaporator plate freezer and spillover fridge. Uses about 60 or 70 amps per 24 hours.

Any strong opinions about just running a standard dorm style unit through an inverter?

What do you think about having only a freezer?

I've been reading all day and have thought of a better way to ask for the help I think I need... or whatever. So, no need to reply here.

Thanks all!
