    As we get out more and more my wife is getting hooked. After this weekends adventure where a macaroni salad blew up in the cooler, it was in the ice and all over, everything we took out had to be cleaned up, it was pain in the ass but now she’s on board with the idea of a fridge.

    The dual battery is setup is in, I have an 85ah battery dedicated to accessories (chargers, lights, fridge) and everything is wired and ready to go. I’ve been thinking for a while about getting a Dometic CFX40W, I’ve read the specs for the size but I can’t visualize how much real estate it will take up in the back. What fridges do you have, what is your intended use, are you happy with it and most importantly, let’s see some pics of it installed.

    I’m not at all interested in a giant dual zone. I will operate it as a fridge, I don’t need it to refrigerate and freeze at the same time and I want to take up as little space as possible.

    Try block ice in your cooler. It melts more slowly. Anything you want to keep colder, you pack next to or on top of the block (depending on dimensions of your cooler). Check for ice companies or RV supply or camp grounds.

    I saw that but that’s to big, I’m not willing to give up that much real estate. I’m leaning towards a Dometic CFX40W which I believe is a 38liter. Same foot print at the CFX35W just slightly taller.

    It's legitimately a good fridge!
