DC fridges beg the question…

How do you close up the outside fridge vent panel? For me, I will want it 100% weather sealed, then insulated like the walls are insulated.

We would prefer to plug cooler into 12 volt source permanently because there is not a nearby 120 outlet. Will this cause any problems such as running batteries down or over using 12 volt outlet. Thanks much!


this conflicts with your other statement. will run fine IMHO on shore power. suggesting dumping your $59 cooler for a $800 one seem unhelpful.

I see no conflicting information. OP obviously has a 12 volt plug available in an area where there is no 120 volt ac plug. For whatever reason (OP’s business) he would prefer to locate the cooler in that location. As has already been stated, as long as he is plugged into shore power, his converter should easily keep up with the draw of the cooler. While this may not be the most efficient use of power, it will work fine.

I replaced the formed vent with a solid panel. An owner can cover the inside of the vented panel with a solid panel, add in the requisite insulation and have exactly what you desire. When installing insulation, opt for extruded foam board. It is a much superior insulator than fiberglass batt and won't suffer from condensation as much as the spun stuff.
