Dual refer system Frigoboat & Grunert
We're installing a Frigoboat k50, keel cooled,12volt refer and freezer system supported by our house bank batteries. Our current system is a Grunert engine supported system, which works ok but it's a hassle to run engine everyday for a few hrs to maintain cold box temps. We are thinking it may be best to just leave the engine driven Grunert system in place and instal the Frigoboat separately, mounting the Frigoboat evap. plates just below the Grunert evap plates so that we have the old Grunert system as a back up system on lengthy passages, if needed. Has anyone done this? Aside from taking up space and added weight does anyone see an issue with this?
All thoughts appreciated. Thank you.
