I was wondering the same thing. It takes forever for it to cool down when we get to the campground. It would be so much easier to let it run on gas, so that way it would already be cool when we get there.
I get to try it this afternoon. Glad to know.TitanLou said:Cool to know. I'll try it the end of the month.
Yup. What he said. Another vote here for just turning it on a day before. I was going to let this one go by, but then there was this temptation...Bhudda454 said:Turn it on a day before on gas. Make sure your battery(s) have a full charge however. The fridge will shut off if it doesn't have enough juice. In case you are not sure of anything regarding your RV'ing needs. RV.net is a fountain of knowledge. There are platny of opinions there also, take it with a grain of salt.
Your fridge doesn't circulate cold air, it is a gas-absorbtion system. it SLOWLY sucks the heat out of the products inside it. This is why you need to put cold item in for best results. I use the tub for the beer when it is me and the guys. We put in all the beer we can fit, and Ice it down. Ofcourse I have a motorhome, and we have access the whole time. LOL
