Where are folks buying the Vitrifrigo DP-150 12 V/120 V? All I can find is outlets in Australia using google.


Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

My experience running refrigerator on 12v

My Dometic refrigerator draws about 3 amps on 120v and 33 amps on 12 (measured with a Trimetic meter) when run with a 450 watt modified sine wave inverter.

Based on that, if you have a single group 24 battery with about 75 amp hours, you could run your refrigerator about 1/2 hour before risking damage to your battery.

In my case, I have 300 amp hours of batteries plus 400 watts of solar and I can run my refrigerator with the inverter while driving for 5 or 6 hours and have from 0% to 8% battery drain depending on sun, clouds etc...

"Where are folks buying the Vitrifrigo [refrigerators]?"

Sure Marine Service. They sell Vitrifrigo, Isotherm, and Novakool 12 V compressor refrigerators in a variety of shapes and sizes. (And Force 10 all-stainless marine stoves--my new Airstream will be getting one of those as well! :-)
