This guy installed a larger Norcold unit and had to modify the cabinet himself to make it fit -

Hope that helps.

Later at night, I bumped into this on the GoWesty Site  :o



http://www.gowesty.com/sale_details.php?id=787



It states an ARB fridge/freezer. I then Googled that and found

claim intemittment 3.5 Amps.  Of course without shore power, you can't run on DC while stopped for very long.



Check it out and let me know what you think.



On the last link, there is an insulated cover to further increase efficiency  - maybe I should build the same for my AC/DC Weekender fridge.
