Thanks for your feedback.
They pull a lot of power! So unless you have a large battery
bank and a means of charging
But, if you want to go through all the trouble I'm sure one could be made from a frig. Compressor
and a plastic box. Basically, they are an air con which cycles on and off. When its in the freeze mode the coils collect the moisture in the room. Then it shuts down with a slow fan on the coils, in which the ice melts and drips in a pan. Then it starts up again.
But if your on shore power or 3000 watt inverter
, just buy a 115V unite.
