    December 16, 2020I have learned that most new RV now only have electric fridge with not option for gas/elect. Now I am not really near needing a new RV yet but I wonder how electric efficient these fridges really are, like exactly the amps. Because I got to say, not havin...  more

      Dreamers and Travelers/ Tom & Prescott December 16, 2020 Many rv's are made totally propane free. Current trend shows people evidently want electric instead according to some industry research. Then there's those whom turn off propane when traveling. Twenty plus years rving we prefer propane. A residenti...  more

        ShareBear December 16, 2020 I think their "current trend" doesn't include boondockers...If I wanted a residential fridge I would live in a stix and brix.

      John T December 16, 2020 Sean, I totally agree for dry camping an LP Fridge saves a lot of electric energy use HOWEVER I see more and more RV's furnished ONLY with a 120 VAC compressor fridge. One saving grade I would consider if I had to have an electric only fridge IS TO PURCHA...  more

      Gary & Joanne...& Willow too. December 16, 2020 We have a large res refrig in our 40' class A and love it. Would never go back to those gas/elec units. And we do a lot of boondocking. I put it on a separate 2000w pure sine inverter that draws only 1/2 an amp when the frig isn't on. The frig draws 7 amp...  more

      Fred Gross December 16, 2020 Sometimes I think a discussion like this becomes very confusing.  It seems like some folks only consider life in a Class A, while others are in smaller and lighter travel trailers.  There is very large difference in space and weight caring capacity plus t...  more

        MRJohnston December 16, 2020 Agree with what you say but want to point out that those wanting smaller and lighter RV’s should absolutely (IMO) look at Lithium batteries. Lithium batteries weigh ~30 pounds versus ~65 pounds for lead acid. Every 100 pounds help. You also only need h...  more

        Larry Lenz July 17 Fred Gross - I have 2-200 watt solar panels and 2 100 amp lithium batteries that power my entire RV.  Yes, it is only 25 feet long and has an electric/gas refrigerator.  With the new Mono solar panels, they charge the batteries very quickly.  My power dra...  more

      John T December 16, 2020 Yo Gary & Joanne, to your statement "  The frig draws 7 amp but obviously doesn't run all the time. I also went to lithium batteries. Great combination"  Sounds great let me do the math: If the fridge draws 7 amps at 120 VAC that'...  more

        Dawg House December 16, 2020 Course, as mentioned above, you're back to $4,000 for a frig.
    • SeanTrailer
      Fred Gross December 16, 2020 I don't many folks spending say $30,000 to 40,000 for an RV are going to spring for $4,000 plus to get lithium batteries plus any other changes, inverters, etc.  There is also the issue of low temperature (below 32F) charging of lithium batteries for folk...  more

      BK December 16, 2020 You can still get two way fridges but the manufacturers are pushing those residential fridges. Most people only camp FHU I guess.

      Olddawg December 17, 2020 I switched to a DC Frig in the new camper. I was Leary about draw on the battery, yet so many that have one told me you'll be surprised on how little they actually use. Mine claims 7ah running, yet do realize they don't run continuously!! This is importan...  more

      Jim & Vicki December 18, 2020 Like you, I was sceptical of a refrigerator that only operated on electric. We bought a new travel trailer a year ago. The refrigerator is a 10.7 cu ft EVER * CHILL and it runs on DC power. I'm amazed with this refrigerator! It is extremely efficient. We ...  more

        SeanTrailer January 13 I have read that these fridges pull about 3-4amps on average (so that accounts for 0 amps when not actively cooling and high amps when engaged coming to an average of 3-4amps) well that is about what my propane does on average as well when on propane so t...  more

      John T July 18   I'm (one who follows RV life and travels often) seeing more and more 120 VAC powered large residential fridges in RV's, but a lot of them are either huge Class A or Fivers. When you go to smaller travel trailers I see far less. Here are a few observatio...  more
