    :thumb:Hi
    We have a small freezer box in our M/H, enough for 4 or 5 home cooked meals (curries, risotto's and so on). We nuke these in the popty-ping and hey presto....stuffed for the night.
    Going away for 5 weeks shortly...not enough room in small freezer !!!
    Wondered about buying a plug in portable freezer/ice box ?? to further our supply of home-cooked ready meals.
    Anybody got any thoughts or ideas...????????

    A plug in 12 volt "fridge" is not good enough to keep things frozen for long. They will defrost in a couple of days. Used one for years with the caravan but only for cooling beers, tonic, lemonade etc. so that the fridge was available for food only.

    We have an Electrolux 3 way in the garage which when I leave home is turned up full and keeps meat frozen until I have room to put beer in it. I then turn it down and use it as a beer fridge. Bought from ebay second hand for £60. Works perfect as long as you remember to switch it over from 12 volt when parked up for any length of time. If I leave it on 12 volt whilst on hookup it just keeps freezing as the thermostat does not work on 12 volt, so have put a mains socket in the garage to plug it into.

    Chocksaway, you're missing the point...SWMBO has already made the food fresh in her own kitchen from fresh ingredients !!!!!
    We're looking for ways to carry this freshly made food with us !!!

    Well, ok, I was a little harsh. Still, why don't you save the stuff already cooked for home use.

    We won't have an oven, but we will have a Cobb Cooker :thumb:

    All meant in best possible taste ::bigsmile:::bigsmile:::bigsmile:
