Everchill is WayInterglobal Co. A company who provides cheaply constructed Chinese junk to the RV Industry. No different than LCI, Hengs, WFCO/World Friendship Co, Patrick Industries, etc.

The lowest irresponsible bidder.

Eveb Dometic and Norcold had to stoop to that level to remain competitive.

RV manufacturers are always looking for cheaper options to hold or increase the bottom line. They're not your friend, just review the convoluted warranties. These Everchill refrigerators are cheaper for them to buy and install. The cabinetry is cheaper to construct, no gas service is needed, and no wall or roof venting is required. A lot less install labor and material overall. You still pay for the entire RV and they have not gotten cheaper.


You don't have much choice though, you're going to be buying ****. That is unless your spending a few hundred thousand or more.

This is something I consider a big positive.

Leaks are usually what kills an RV and leaks typically come from holes in the roof.

The same ones who may have extremely short cycle life from an LI bank by relying on the battery management system to "protect" them.

SiO2 would be a much better fit for folks who just want to plug and play.

Seriously. You have to have a bit of education to know when a salesman is blowing smoke.

An RV with an electric fridge still has "holes in the roof". So you might have 1 less hole in the roof which matters little if you have two vents,AC,skylight,a plumbing vent or two, and a TV antenna. I don't know how having 7 holes in the roof is a big positve over 8 holes in the roof, but whatever floats your boat I guess.

As one who typically camped at Fed/USACE and State Park campgrounds, which typically have a much higher percentage of rustic sites to FHU or even electric only sites, I'll take the 2 way absorption fridge. There are many campgrounds around these parts where all the sites are rustic. Folks who need all the conveniences of home avoid them and thats a good thing. I don't really care to mess with generators, banks of batteries, inverters, and arrays of solar panels. It would be easier to use a Yeti.

The rustic sites can almost be had at any time easily, even on holiday weekends, and can be the quietest and nicest sites in the campground, and usually are.

Now when ones desire is to sit in a box, 10' from someone else sitting in a box, then an Everchill makes all the sense in the world. It's still a piece of cheap garbage however. or the manufacturers would not be installing them.

Each hole is a chance for a leak. No hole, no leak.

Why does a compressor fridge require a hole in the roof?
