I am starting to research
replacing the Frigoboat Engine
system on our Jeanneau
SO 45.2. After 6 years of suffering with constant system failures (it was in charter
for 5 years so I didn't have to pay for repairs
......now that we have it for private use it is starting to cost a significant amount to repair and after several attempts I have decided to replace the system.)
thoughts are to keep the existing holding plate and replace the engine
with a DC compressor
. The fridge box is 12 cu. ft. and I have a space under the stove adjacent to the fridge where I would plan to mount the compressor. This space is 10" deep x 9" high x 21" wide, and well vented.
I would appreciate any thoughts on if I am moving in the right direction and if so what brands of compressor I should look at. Thanks in advance for any input on this process.
On a positive note, I just purchased an Engel 12 volt freezer
unit and used it last week in the BVI and I worked wonderfully. I would highly recommend this unit.
