EscapadeCaliber40LRC is on a distinguished road
My boat used to be plumbed that way. It had an 80 gallon fresh water tank dedicated as a cooling water source leaving us with just the 110 gal tank as the house supply. Thankfully hurricane Wilma came along and eliminated the electronics of my former compressor and I replaced the whole unit with an air cooled Danfross. I returned the 80 gallon to the house water system and rigged up a bunch of additional fans under the settee to help move air past the compressor on hot days. These four fans draw an additional .15 amps each and I can power them all on or off at will but usually I leave them off. My former unit was an Iso Therm.
