Valiente If you have the shore power, use it, I say. You've already paid for it.

And if you have the sun/wind power, do the same. If not...leave the fridge door open, lest ye be visited by The Curse of the Black Fungi.

TrueBlue . . . It helps to keep it filled with BEER & WINE.

labatt That was so condescending! My feelings are terribly hurt now.

TrueBlue Not to be condescending with this question, but . . . When you and your family go on vacation for a few weeks, do you unplug your home's refrigerator? There really is no difference, between a boat's reefer compressor and a home unit - but voltage and size.

They're designed for this, so keep it on 24/7. We do, and so do the many seasonal and liveaboard friends we have.

Leaving fridge/freezer on for the season...?

Being new to having a fridge and freezer - I'm assuming it's OK to leave them on for the entire sailing season (about 5 months here on Lake Champlain)? This is not a power question, but just a "are they meant to do that" question. It's a brand new SeaFrost two plate system.
