12volt compressor fridge power draw.

Post by robcaz » Wed Jan 10, 2018 11:42 am

Hi all,

Please find an article added to the tech tips page http://www.campertrailers.org/12volt_co ... e_draw.htm

There have been a few queries as to what size battery is required to run a 12volt compressor fridge. It is not a simple answer as there are a number of factors governing how much power is used to keep the preset internal temperature.

While not being too technical I hope this article explains the workings of a 12volt compressor fridge & how to easily find out the fridges power consumption using a watts up meter, along with a few tips & tricks & rules of thumb to get the best out of your fridge & battery when camping.

Thanks to those who proofread the article for me & also for their input.
happy camping
