I have the Seafrost 110v., water cooled system. There are two valves so the two bokkes have separate thermostats. There is one plate in the fridge, two inthe freezer. Additionally I have an engine driven compressor - belt and suspenders, I guess. The system has worked without problem for over 5 years. The only problem is that in crudy water the intake for the cooling water will occasionally pick up some debrie and the unit will shut down unexpectedly. The 12 v. unit does not have the capacity to run this system. On the other hand, this setup must have cost about 12K to install.
