Wine Cooler Refrigerators

I'm curious as to whether anyone on the forums has installed a wine cooler refrigerator in their Airstream. I recently picked one up on sale and am thinking about building it into the existing cabinetry. Thanks...

Many of them are thermoelectric and are very very inefficient. Only if you are plugged in to shore power are they viable. Even the compressor ones take a fair amount of power if you are not hooked up. I guess the true wine drinkers enjoy the selection and the temperature control to be perfect. I would use the space for something more valuable to me, but then, I am far from a true wine drinker.

Also, will a subsequent owner value a wine cooler as much as you do, or will it just be a liability to the sale.

Things to think about anyway.

Master Sommelier Doug Frost says to chill red wines in the refrigerator 30 minutes before drinking. And to take white wines out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before drinking. Most of us drink reds too warm and whites too cold, he says. It's 4:30 somewhere.
