Question Running fridge.

Just wondering if its ok to run the fridge for a long time . I have the trailer in the drive way and we are planing to take it out in a couple of weeks again . I keep it plugged in while it sits. I like to keep beer in it, when im working in the yard i dont have to go inside ha ha.

We had ours running for about 12 weeks this summer with no problem. Once in a while I set it just to run on gas for a few days, just makes me feel better and it keeps that line purged.

4 years, several months, & some-odd days and counting! Have it off once in a while for defrosting. Other than that it's running.

Mine runs 24-7, camping, stored at home or while traveling. As Bama stated, I only shut it down to defrost it.

For 9-10 months of the year, always on, always loaded & ready to roll should the mood hit.

Nothing more important in life than keeping the beer cold and the trailer ready to roll. Keep it plugged in.

Mine is on, stocked with beer and ready to go. I'll turn it off when I winterize or when I'm done with leaves for the year, whichever comes first.
It is very convenient to have beer in it while you are doing your yard work.

mine hasn't been shut off since April 2008, the day i took delivery

let em run, it takes a lot less to keep it cold than to get the process going again. plus you always have a COLD place for extra food or during power outages.
my 06 cedar creek fiver was the same, took delivery march of 05 and it ran until we sold it in 08

the 96 fiver, ran from 95 to 2005.

The secret to long-running is - always make sure there is at least one beer in it. For good measure, make sure you stock up around the 3-4 beer level. That way it will stay happy and live a long life.

They operate more efficiently when full, so keep at least a case in there at all times.
