Hi CCC

I have one of these as do some rellies we camp with occasionally. They are superb on LPG, good on 240V power and ordinary on 12V.

If you have a bit of a scout around there are a few threads - viewtopic.php?f=64&t=3038 and although this one is about the Aldi version its worth a read viewtopic.php?f=107&t=2256

I reckon they are a good thing - but you need to do good quality wiring in the car.

3 way fridges are never meant to perform in anything other than ‘maintenance’ mode on 12 volt.

The other thing with a 3 way is that they MUST be level in order to perform well on gas. Keep both of these things in mind & you will be very happy with your purchase.

The other advantage is that by buying from a chain store the return policy on items in much better than purchasing anywhere else.
