    May 19, 2019So last month we spent about a month in the desert southwest (Utah and Arizona) and spent about 40% of the time boondocking with our 35 ft. Class A Newmar Bay Star. To people that say you can't boondock with a residential refrigerator I can say BS. I ha...  more

      Sam Libby (hubby Matt) May 19, 2019 Thanks for the info on your setup. We boondock a fair bit & have a residential fridge, no solar yet. We run the generator an hour daily ang get FHU a day or two a week/two weeks for using my washer & have not had any problems. Solar would allow us more free days.

      Wncol May 19, 2019 Oh it is definetly possible but with an absorption refrigerator, that solar load can be a quite a bit lower freeing up a lot of power for other things or reducing the need for a lot of panels.

      Carol & Wayne May 19, 2019 We travel with a 17.5 cu ft residential fridge installed in the exact space where the factory installed 12 cu Dometic was. The res fridge is wonderful. We travel with a friend with a Dometic fridge and it has been a constant battle to keep it working righ...  more

      Robbie & Alice May 19, 2019 We boondock 95% of the time and our residential refrigerator and freezer do just fine on our solar system.

      Doug Rizzo May 19, 2019 There are 12/24 volt Refrigerator/freezers available from Canada. Even 12/24/48 volt  air conditioners from Europe.  They are very energy conscience there.

      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) May 19, 2019 Some of the most energy efficient refrigerators/freezers are made by Sun Frost in Arcata, California.  Renowned for their use in “off-grid” living situations.

      John T May 19, 2019 Hey as you already know SURE ONE CAN BOONDOCK USING A RESIDENTIAL FRIDGE, No Problem Well Duh lol. All it takes is sufficient solar panels and battery storage capacity. I'm running 1080 solar watts and 520 Amp Hours of AGM batteries, a CPAP each nigh...  more

        Robbie & Alice May 20, 2019 Residential refrigerator/freezer.... 1600 watts of panels, 600 amps of lithium-ion power everything.  We hit 100% SOC most days.  We set a reminder to exercise our Onan generator once a month.  This system is 6 years old...and easily paid for itself.
    • Dave and Terry Clayton
      John T May 20, 2019 Robbie & Alice, isn't it great to reach 100% SOC in the mornings yayyyyyyyyyyy If one has sufficient solar capacity to achieve that, on days when its rainy or you're parked in the shade one still gets by.get by. As said, "Any solar is good solar and ...  more

        Robbie & Alice May 20, 2019 Just this morning weather was 43*, cloudy and very gloomy.  We noticed we were absorbing 38 amps....a positive...made 100% SOC by early afternoon.  I like the days where I don't tilt anything and have 100% SOC before noon!
