Re: 3 way Dometic refer setting in an Escape19'


I am currently having a 19' built and am looking at the larger 3 way fridge offered. Current draw is a consideration.

BTW, your post topic really get hijacked by a couple of folks that just need to talk about their table locks!...... they probably started reading your post and forgot the subject...

Re: 3 way Dometic refer setting in an Escape19'

When I ordered mine, the options were the smaller 3 way or the bigger 2 way. Towing while on propane has it's drawbacks and I wanted the 12v option. With solar it can be done. But you need to know the draw of the larger refer on 12v. I had a 5 cu/ft 3 way and the draw was 9 a/h. Without solar it could not be done. I also found that the smaller 3.5 or 3.3 is adequate for food. My libations are in a cooler with my ice which you will need a cooler for anyway. I carry it in the bath without any issue. I think if you start loading the refer with beer/soda on the door, you may have issues down the road. That is why I put only food in mine.
