    The frig will be mounted in my "S250" shelter which is on my M105 trailer. That way I can use 24 volts DC when driving, (I have a dedicated 10 gauge wire for power to the trailer) and then switched to my generator (MEP-531) 120 volts AC when parked for the night. Since I can keep food frozen I can have "TV" dinners at night using my small micro-wave.

    You should test the internal batteries. Looks like in freeze mode they last 8 hours. If they charge during day might be sufficient for night and after the battery runs out the temp loss difference is 5 degrees after 4 more hours I think.

    That was one of the first things I did when I got it. They actually lasted 10 hours in freeze mode. Then they kept it cool for another 6 hours.

    Well the "Great Alaskan Adventure" keeps getting postponed due to the lack of a working area and all the new construction going on at home right now. Instead of installing my power steering system last summer, I spent it cleaning out my old shop and then watched it get demolished. My new shop isn't even in view yet as the ground hasn't even been cleared due to the horrible weather here. The land clearing crew cannot work when it is constantly raining. It just makes a mud pit.
    So at this time I'm planning on waiting till summer till I can install the steering system and then go through my brakes. They haven't been touched in several years now. Oh I bleed the brakes every year, but the bearings need checking as does the brake shoes and drums. I'm also planning to change out all my wheel cylinders. Already have the new ones ready to go. I will be installing the larger bore wheel cylinders up front just like the A3 has.
    Bottom line, it won't be until the summer of 2019 now before the great adventure begins. I just hope I still can make the trip then ! Maybe I will have my son do most of the driving.

    Mate!?

    Seriously, this isn't camping!
    You need to cook over open flames like men do when going 'bush'.
    Nothing else is acceptable!



    Very nice unit you have there, I wonder how it compares to my Engel fridge/Freezers,...?
    Mine can freeze down to -18 Deg C

    How many Ltrs capacity do you have with internal storage?
    I have a 21ltr, a 40ltr and a 60ltr fridge/freezer, the 60ltr is a limited addition that supports out Anzac veterans.
    Same colour as your new fridge.

    I hope you get all those jobs you need to get done, done and have a great time on your Alaskan adventure.

    I have no problems "going bush" as you say. I was after all a Sargent in the USMC . I love to hike and camp. I still own sixteen sleeping bags ranging from 40 degrees below zero to summer temps. I own over 80 back-packs. My "REI" number is in the low thousands. I have 50 gallon barrels full of camping supplies. My friends used to joke that I was planning to "outfit" my own "Platoon" ! I used to hike all over the Cascade Range, then I had my accident and shattered my spinal disc between L4 and L5. Then later had my left knee replaced. That ended all my hiking expeditions. Now I take the RV out if I want to "commune" with nature. Now about starting a fire. "I would love to use my "Kelly Cooker" or Jet Oven" or any one of my many "camp" stoves I own. Or just get out my "Bow Drill" and start a fire. The problem is those silly Canadians ! For some reason they don't like you starting fires along-side the roads up there ! LOL !!!

    Getting back to the frig unit. As far as how cold this unit gets to, look at the pictures in my first post. It shows the temperature at -22.6 C . It's final temperature hit -23 C . That's pretty cold. As far as area goes, it is 18" wide, 18" long, and 15" tall. That's 4860 cubic inches. I don't how much that is in metric liters though .
    Of course I will have plenty of pictures of this Alaskan adventure. If anything I normally take too many pictures. At least my wife and son say so.
