Bold,
You should look at marine suppliers on the coast. We got ours 2 years ago and we love it. We have an Isotherm 190 (I think that's the #). It has 2 compressors - one fridge & one freezer. We wanted to be able to turn one off if we didn't need the freezer but never have.

What ever you get, be sure to put some insulation around it where it meets the wall. We used a black gasket material. Before we put that in, there was quite a breeze coming in.

Bold,

We own a 190 Installation is not difficult it required some framing so as bunni said there may be a large gap you will need to deal with. Also need access to 12vdc and 120vac circiuts.
We have operated ours in 105 at lee's ferry with out issue. Although it ran constantly to keep up. The only issue we had was the fridge froze up once because it was set too low (operator error). Also we defrost the freezer every 6-8 weeks depending on the humidity and temps where we are camping. The freezer takes about 1/2 hour. The fridge took much longer as we had significant ice build up.

I have pictures of our install looks factory. Will post tomorrow if your interested.

You might want to look at a drawer for freezer portion. When we open the freezer door stuff tends to jump out land on the floor particularly after traveling :>). We now have a couple of spring loaded bars to keep the stuff in the freezer.

Actually, there are Danfoss marine fridge dealers all over the place. We found one in Phoenix when we thought we needed service (turned out to be a defrosting issue so we didn't need them after all.)

I'd love to see photos! But I'm just curious if anyone has the 195. We like the idea of a larger freezer on the bottom. One of the pit falls of full timing in the airstream is the small freezer.

We have the 195 (got the # wrong earlier). The freezer will hold quite a lot of food -- probably 2 or 3 weeks of dinners for us. As Benn said we defrost it about every 2 months when we're out west. Here in Florida we probably would have to do it more often.

Here are a few pictures I could find. Benn may have more and will post them later.

Thanks for those photos.

Well, I just hate that different companies use liters vs cubic feet. So I did the math. And just realized that the 195 would actually be smaller than our current 7cu ft unit.

We have a Dometic RM3762 unit, the original. Which I can't find excat measurements for each compartment. \_(ツ)_/

This leads me back around to the Vitrifrigo 8.1cu http://www.suremarineservice.com/DP2600IBD4-F.aspx

Lew Farber told me that power duty cycle is a little over half time with his customers so the Vitrifrigo published 5.38 amps @ 12Vdc is not a continuos drain on the battery.

If I were to do this again I would choose the 2 drawer fridge/freezer. But I think if might be a few inches too tall for the space we have.

If it was truly too tall, I'd go for the one with 1 drawer. Stuff falls out of our freezer. Hasn't hit my foot yet, but I'm just waiting for that! I think this one is larger than my current 195.

Interesting options. That 8.1 with the drawer on the bottom would fit in the existing space.

1/2 duty cycle for our 195 is about right. Manufacturers published spec's are pretty close.

Fridge/Freezer is drawing approx. 4-8 amps depending on 1 or 2 compressors running. The freezer is set at 0 F fridge is set at 34 F on the bottom shelf. Its about 5 degrees higher on the top shelf can rise to 7 if the fridge is packed and the built in fan on the top shelf is obstructed.

Based on the total trailer daily amp. usage measurements I have taken. I estimate its drawing 70-150 Amps per day based on ambient temp. Highs ranged from 104 to 42 F, lows 71 to 23 F.

Pictures and other info are in post 23 in this thread.

BTW I emailed the Indel USA rep asking if there one I could see a 195 in Florida no luck with that but they offered me boat show discount pricing which was better than I could find on the internet.
