Re: Why not cheap refrig components?
miata: nope, not the dock kinda guys. We splash and go ( this time, south to Fl from MD), then from Jan-Mar (bahamas). I should also mention that we already have an inverter (1500w IIRC). We are also planning on adding 200-300w of solar. mostly hook to hook, w/ re-supply and dock visits for fuel, etc. about once a week or two. ICW south should be ok, as most of that is power, unless weather is suitable, and a couple of jumps outside. Also, I believe I've seen the cold plate style for sale at HD & Lowes. Are these useable.
chuckles: I totally agree, one of my quick (lol) projects in Sept. is to make one big bank and small starter battery. I'm actually going to start another thread on that.
denise: what did you mean by the danfoss as much as a compressor? I'm a bit confused (happens easily). Did you mean that the danfoss is a less expensive solution or that it is expensive but vastly superior to other approaches?
thx all :-)
