Re: Question about refrigerators

Hi: Garand... "What are they"?... White plastic fingers of course!!!
They are meant to hold tension against tall narrow items like a milk carton or a wine box etc. I hope that sounds good as I really don't know for sure. Alf

Re: Question about refrigerators

Those little 'fingers' in the door are a great invention! Hold in place whatever you put there through the bumps and jogs of rocky rides & roads.

We have always kept our frig at 3 and it always keeps things very cold. We carry several blue ice packs in the freezer, which I think helps hold the cold - we use them for picnics/day trips.

Re: Question about refrigerators

Thanks for the answer to my finger question. Now I wonder why I always get one when I drive?

Dave

p.s.: The blue ice idea is excellent.

Re: Question about refrigerators

I gotta say that I get a chuckle every time I see 'frig' used. Around here it is an alternative to the F word. We use 'fridge' when shortening refrigerator. No idea where the 'd' came from though.

I must say that the spelling abilities on this forum are exponentially better than the spelling that I've seen on fishing forums and 4X4 forums.

Around here the F bombs refer to 3.5 or 5.0 cubic feet of volume

Re: Question about refrigerators

Electronic "indoor/outdoor" thermometers are cheap and for the most part accurate, they also record the highs and lows. I have one in my home to tell me it is cold outside, or warm.

Buy one place the sensor (thermocouple) in a glass of Icecubes to calibrate it.

The place the sensor (thermocouple) in your fridge and you can read or record the inside temps.

Hi: Jim Bennett...I think the "D" is part of a remake of the word Frigid. No English Major here just MHO FWIW(2cents) Alf

Based on 30 minutes of intensive Google-time, I suspect the "d" was added to differentiate between the F word alternative and the device for keeping stuff cold. All the definitions I found for "frig" were of the lascivious variety (damn, I don't think I've ever used "lascivious" in a sentence before). In addition, here's our Latin lesson for the day:

Refrigerate: from Latin refragerare to make cold, from re- + frigus cold

Re: Question about refrigerators

Hi: Garand...The latin word for "Tug& Trailer" is Chariot . I think the "D" puts fridge before frig in Mr. Websters book. We certainly don't want to have the trailer before the tug!!! Alf
