Sounds good! The question now is how much power it demands. The ARB is undoubtedly too expensive, however it does have the low power consumption "swing piston" motor. What kind of motor does the WAECO have and what is the amp draw?? :hmm:
Also, is there enough room in a BJ74 for it, along with all the other camping tonnage we carry?
So far, I have done OK with the usual cooler packs for most of the season, and dry ice for July and Aug long weekends. 'Course, the extended trip in late summer will be a different situation. I'll have to borrow Millson's ARB I guess!

Danfoss compressor, I believe it's the same compressor that is in the "new" ARB fridges. Excellent quality. That's a big fridge, I've read the power demands are high (up to 4-4.5 amps/hr) when cycling. Nothing a big aux battery and solar panel couldn't handle. Excellent purchase Aaron!

IF set for 5c and ambient is 32c the running time will be 25%. The power draw is no more than 3 amps(24v) Its not that bad at all. I am not too worried, the 74 has the DEEP CYCLE, YELLOW TOPS. Thanks Guys!

Febuary is a time for good deals - typically cash-flow at a minimum with family and business

That WAECO CF 110 looks like it draws 65 watts - so the test will be a hot summer day and night over 24 hours to see what reserve is left in the two Yellow tops to start the engine. The 55 amp hour yello tops have 55 a-h X 24 v = 1320 watt-hours of reserve. 65 watts cycling 50% will use up 780 wat hours of that - so should be enough to start when batteies 60 % depleted. If it cycles around 80% - those batteries will be pretty flat to start the engine.

I will bring it back from our shop at work. I am media blasting the undercoat to UN-SEAL it and soak it with rust check. The s*** they put on the roads this winter Blackish shayzen ate away at my exhaust so I am not taking any chances on my investment. Soon NORM soon!
