    Ok, this thread is heading toward the toilet; literally. Lol!

    Just for the record (wonder why when I offer to cook and nobody let's me), I only store the Pett's when the cooler is empty and finished using it. So in a 5 day trip, I have 5 bags of Pett in double bag and kept sep from meals.

    Not to disgress but I will, hey Muddy, how's AL treating you and the family? Any wheeling trips yet? Hope all is well; don't be surprised if some CA folks come and visit you if you lay out any fture wheeling trips and places to eat like Mexxis.

    Ron,
    Everything is going pretty well in AL. House is about 1/2 organized. We have to purge even more now that we are here. Weather has been cold. This has been the coldest winter for while. We have had snow 2 or 3 times. Nothing heavy, but enough to have overpasses, schools and some bridges closed for safety. Only two mexicans restaurants in town and they are no match for Mexxi's, so appreciate what you have in San Ramon, CA.

    No wheelin' trips yet. Been too busy with work and the house. Waiting for the next meet and greet with the TN Rover Club. Hopefully that will take place some time soon and not too far away.

    Anyway, best of luck with the Frigzer and let us know how it works out. Might be a good first step for me and camping around here.

    FYI on Compact Appliance. com

    I purchased one of these fridges on 1/15/10 and paid the sale price at the time of $499.99. I thought it was a pretty good deal. I saw Ron's post a couple of days ago and was pi$$ed off I paid too much.

    Today I called Compact appliance and spoke to a cust service rep. She refunded $95 to me because of the price difference.

    Awesome customer service!

    That's great!

    Yeah 01/15 was only 3 weeks ago - great that they refunded the difference!

    The $95 they refunded you will come back to the company in the form referrals and word of mouth from happy customers like us and others = more business!

    Didn't get the chance to update this thread; thanks for asking Enrique.

    I received the fridge a week after purchase.

    Very smooth purchase; as soon as I pulled the trigger or purchase online, I received an order confirmation via email; and then a follow-up email with shipping and tracking info. Next thing I know, big box was waiting for me @ home a week later.

    First impression, well packed; the fridge was in the OME box, and that box was in another bigger box suspended by foam on all corners.

    Took the fridge out and has nice fit/trim.

    Came with AC plug, and plug for 12v.

    Controls are easy to use and read. Press "set" to set temp (use up and down button), or press "FF" fast freeze. I plugged it @ home in the morning, pressed FF and came back later in the afternoon, ready to store ice cream!

    Been running since I bought it and so far so good; not too noisy and keeps food cold (using it as a spare fridge in my home office for now)

    My son's birthday is coming up; he wants to have a camping party; we'll use the fridge to store/transport his birthday icecream cake.

    Then hopefully get to use it for the Oregon Trail, and the Dusy Irshim trip this year!

    Bottomline, I am happy with my purchase.

    Looks like a good deal. What's the power draw on that? Is it as efficient as an ARB or is a 2nd battery a must?

    Here's your answer - see attached picture.

    Made there, distribution and customer service handled in the USA. As much as I want to buy American made, at least some of my money is going to a company in Austin, TX. My other choice is ARB (made in Australia right) but expensive. Went with this value buy.

    Been test running it on AC since day 1. Quiet. Nice fit and finish. No problem thus far.

    One wknd, had it running in the garage in the RRC plugged in the DC/cig ligther.

    After driving it to work, pulled the fridge in the RRC Friday night; running 29* temp to keep the bev chilled; came back Sunday and RRC started right up (I am using Sears Platinum PM-2).

    My trick is to plug the fridge in the AC and pre-chill it desired temp, and then move it to the truck the night or day of the trip while packing.

    Also the unit does not erase the temp setting when unplugged from AC and plugged to DC and vise versa. Nice feature. Memory.

    Speaking of memory, got distracted when I started typing this post.... ooh, now I remebmer, where is my beer - time to finish what I started.

    Have a great wknd Carlos and all!
