Re: Norcold refrigerator

Not that exact item, but in general I'd steer clear of Norcold unless it's a heckuva deal.

Why steer clear?

Re: Norcold refrigerator

People that had a problem will never recommend. Those lucky enough to have had no problems will endorse. After three years, mine still performs well.

Re: Norcold refrigerator

These 'fridges come highly recommended:

They have only ONE moving part which makes them quite robust.

They look EXACTLY like my Norcold. I wouldn't be suprised if they were re-labled units built by Norcold.

Just FYI, the current issue of Overland Journal has a great test of 12 volt refrigerators.

Re: Norcold refrigerator

Jeffrey you nailed it on the head. We have had our 2 1/2 years and the fridge has preformed flawlessly. It has consistently kept maintained 40 degrees even in the middle of Death Valley.

Cheers,
John

Re: Norcold refrigerator

Yes, John & Dane, me too!

Like anything, when it works we don't notice. Just when it messes up. Everyone here knows about the Espar Heaters whether they have one or not.. Yes, I complained, but when it's working, it's fabulous.
