Marine Refrigeration Systems always 12 volts?
I replaced my refrigeration last year with a new Adler-Barbour Cold Machine. While I was at it, I redesigned the ice box and put Reflectix space age bubble insulation on the walls for extra insulation. I did the project myself and felt it was very easy to do, particularly since I didn't have to drill holes in the box for the coolant lines since the holes were already there. The fridge units all come sealed with refrigerant loaded in both parts, install, connect together and you are done! All units, no matter what the manufacturer, use the Danfoss compressor which is industry standard. I would use the manufacturer's recommendation for size of box as you will find that an oversized unit for the box will be extremely inefficient because of the more frequent but shorter run cycles.
