I would never get rid of my propane refer.

Sounds like you are going to a lot of work to get somewhere you may not like when you arrive.

Well my refrig is toast and a new one cost about a grand or more SO for a grand I can have a source of power for the trailer and still have a refrig as long as I can keep the gen sound down . REMEMBER in the thinking stage of this how about this how about I get some pro's and con's from people and we will take the majority. I am not sure if this forum can post polls but if not post replay with pro or con.

You can add a poll when you start the thread. If you select "add poll to this thread", it will give you options for number of poll choices, and how long you want the poll to run. At this late date, I think it would be better to start a new thread with a poll, rather than asking a moderator to add a poll to this one, and get a fresh start.

Eerie...I posted the above, hit "submit", and voila, there was a poll...

a miniture version of the AC unit on your truck.
it could have electric start so it does not idle between compressor cycles.
Engine would only need to be about 1/2 hp for a small fridge.

I think a trip to the patent office is in order.
Cute very cute

Why weight?

How much will the 4 6 volt golf cart batteries, generater/alternater combo, inverter, small fridge, inverter weigh? Facter all of this into the thought process before moving on. Oh yeah, think about larger propane tanks and their contents. You'll need more propane on hand if planning on boodocking. How much less firewater will you be able to carry with this weight trade off?
