    So, the Old CRT TV Cupboard, with turntable and up and over door. No longer required.

    Fridge is small, not great and the freezer even more useless.

    Turntable removed, door modified and hey presto, better use with refrigeration.

    I assume it is mains powered, so how long does it take to zap your batteries when running from an inverter?

    A long time. We have 360ah, solar and engine. Its rated 50w @ 240v A+

    Only tend to use it when on EHU or when travelling.

    It means for example, when travelling to Spain or South of France over a few days. You can take things you might need, home cooked ready meals or shop en-route. When on site, we can makes lots of ice, freeze foods and have proper ice cream.

    There is a cut-out with a vent. Also, notice the gap at the top of the cupboard. The freezer has a skin condenser so no fluff build up and the sides are free to breath.
