I run a domestic fridge all year round, it’s only really overcast days that hit my 220Ahr battery.
I would recomend Dometic products, switching to compressor units are more eficient but you need good batteries when of grid.We are having to replace the Thetford N175 fridge freezer, in our 2009 Swift kontiki
Any suggestions, either, stay with Thetford or maybe change to Dometic, or anything else?
Thanks in advance
Where can I pay 55p/Litre for LPG? closest to me (which is not that close is 66p?Litres - so cost has increased 20%.The running cost of a three-way fridge on LPG is typically 300g per day, which costs 33p if you pay 55p/litre.
Lead Acid - I think your "100 Cycles" would be pessimistic to the extreme. Even a basic wet cell Banner Bull battery is 200 Cycles and most are more.50Ah is the entire usable capacity of a 100Ah lead acid battery. They typically cost about £100 and have a life of about 100 cycles. So that's £1 to run the fridge through a cloudy day. Yes, you'd need more than that one battery, but the cost works out pro rata: two batteries cost twice as much, last twice as long.
Assume instead that you have a 200Ah lithium battery costing £2000 with a service life of 2000 cycles. That's also £1 per cycle. So assuming your fridge is only using 33% of that battery's cycle life, it costs 33p per day: same as the LPG.
maybe post a link to what you are referring to?
a "solar fridge" would only work in daylight I guess I am guessing it means as much as the term "solar generator" does
Silly question what is wrong with your old fridge as nobody has asked yetIf it were me, I would be putting in a compressor fridge. Possibly Thetford as they do an exact-size swap.
That's a good price
Asda charges 52.7 per litre everywhere it stocks LPG. Morrisons charge about 56p, but vary the prices according to what they can get away with. Of course, if you don't live near one, and don't drive past one, that makes a difference.Where can I pay 55p/Litre for LPG? closest to me (which is not that close is 66p?Litres - so cost has increased 20%.
