I missed that! Who gave Richard Kollmann a hard time?? Le-me at 'em!! RRRR!!!
Richard Kollmann singlehandedly saved me hundreds if not thousands of dollars after I bought his book. He is, hands-down the single
best resource out there for learning
how to do refrigeration. Not only is his book *the* source for learning
, but he runs a forum where you can ask questions once you have purchased his book. Without his book and help, I would have never been able to get my refrigerator
up and running. It was damaged in several ways when I bought it and I had to do a lot of stuff to it to get it up to speed. Now, it runs like a top.
I feel like I owe him more than I paid for his book. Honestly, after the emotional rollercoaster of my refrigeration install, I feel I owe a debt of gratitude to this man.
BTW: Congrats on the new boat, Bob! Personal opinion on this thread would be to make a decision after we know how you intend to cruise
with this refrigerator
. In any case, maybe you could adapt it to another power source, such as a genset, or go Paul's route
. Really depends on what your daily usage will be. Fill us in!
