Caravan FridgeCan a 2 way fridge run off of EHU?
Posted 19 May 2012 - 06:34 am
My question is, how can I have the fridge run off of EHU while on site? Would I need to get a battery charger installed to continuously charge the battery so that the fridge will run off 12v all of the time.
I have a new baby and, although I have had the fridge serviced recently, I don't want to use gas appliances while she is asleep in the van.
Aside from replacing the fridge with a 3 way, which I don't want to do, what are my options? Can a 2 way fridge be run off of EHU, or the battery with an inline charger?

Regarding your family, I don't honestly believe you have anything to worry about from operating your existing two way fridge on gas, providing it is serviced regularly. The exhaust gas fumes should be safely ducted through the caravan wall to the outside, but unlike later models the heat exchanger cooling is from the circulation of fresh air from within the caravan. This can be an advantage on cool evenings, as the waste heat from the fridge will keep the chill off the interior of the 'van, but may work against you during the summer months, when you really want it cooler.

I could not even say how many caravans I have owned with RM122 fridges over the last 45 + yrs but they are a very simple and reliable fridge as long as the fridge is level and the gas jet is kept clean and the flue. The real old ones used to have a flint to light the gas burner before the push button ignition spark .

You have reassured me as far as the safety of the fridge goes. I will have it serviced before we use the van this year.
