    Morning all,

    We love our MH but find the fridge too small to be very practical. Are there any alternatives such as cool boxes that can be powered up whilst we are on EHU?

    We have a small cool box which plugs into the cigarette lighter socket but this only works when the engine is running. Are there converters that you can use to convert from cigarette lighter sockets into the 12v supply in the habitation area? Current coolbox also very small so can anyone suggest a particular make/model that they are happy with?

    Warmish wine and beer is not very nice whatever the weather!

    Thanks

    Rich

    I suspect that would not be an option, it would drain your battery in a short time...

    I have always had my beerbox. Got it from Aldi years ago. Its a good size and runs on 12volt or mains. I keep it in the garage now but it used to live under the table in the other camper. Its always plugged into the 12 volt leisure side.

    you can get adapters that will give you a cigarette lighter socket from the mains so you can run 12volt stuff on mains i think royal do one but its around the size of a house brick.
