Hello people! I'm looking out the window at lake effect snow falling in the yard, where it's about 25 degrees. Damn heat wave, compared to last week. While watching a squirrel pop up and down from a hole in the snow, my thoughts turned to refrigeration
. I have an old 120 volt Crosby system, running off an inverter
, to chill a 12 cu ft fridge, and an 8 cu ft freezer
. No ice cubes, and there is a hole between them. At anchor
, I drain the batt's pretty quick overnight, and have to run the engine
first thing in the morning.
I want to go to a 12 volt system, and will probably have to reduce the size of both boxes. I was just curious about what you experienced cruisers have for:
1. box size
2. refer system
3. power storage
( number and type of batt's, solar
4. what's in the fridge?
I have seen the Kollmann slide show, and estimate that I would have to reduce to a 8 cu ft fridge, and 4 cu ft freezer
, to be able to use a BD50.
So what are y'all doing to keep those tasty beverages cool?
