Good evening Folks,
Today I took the 12 volt fridge back out. The compressor got pretty warm and I wanted to get more insulation around the fridge. It is WAECO and uses a Danfoss 12 /24 VDC compressor.
The bus is slightly less wide on top , or better the standing frame post are bent at about the bottom of the window.
So the space behind the fridge is tapered. I had some tapered flat roof insulation. Two tapered pieces together gave the right angle and thickness so that not space would be left. Lucky me.
For the fridge cabinet I had allowed 2" insulation on each side and 1/2" on the bottom so that went in as well.
The compressor during startup from outside temperature would overheat during the initial cool down and cut out.
Figured that some extra cooling would be good for long levity and installed a 24 VDC fan that is nice and quiet at 12 volt. Power draw about 3 Watt. It runs non stop and it keeps the compressor and condenser nice and cool.
I also flipped the door hinges around so that it all gets a little more convenient.
In my search for storage space I pulled the lid from the passenger side airbag of. The airbag was gone and it seems a nice space to make paper work storage.
Finally i installed a 19" lcd monitor to be used as TV and movie screen.
It used to be a high end Samsung. ( 10yrs ago) I used it because it has a 12 volt DC power input.
I had some thoughts how to avoid vibration to the screen and used rubber cable grommets as vibration dampers. We will see how it holds up. ( picture tomorow)
