The original medium size battery that came with the coach was depleted in 24 hours or less when running the fridge. If I could choose, I would choose a 3 way fridge, but I think if I had to choose between propane and 12v I would choose propane, just for less worries with the batteries.
Mike, Thank you for sharing with the group...
I thin kthat the compressor only fridges are great if you have a healthy battery bank and at least 100W of solar power to keep everything in a happy-happy state...even while driving.
But, nevertheless, it is a viable option to mobile refrigeration, and possibly safer than an absorption fridge running o propane.
