We love our outdoor kitchen in our 38rd. Great for cookouts no going inside for sodas.

Unless you plan to spend most of your time inside, you can't beat an outside kitchen. Keeps heat in when needed and out when not wanted. Keeps insects out and unit much cleaner as you are not going in and out for food and drinks. We love ours.

we love ours with the exception of the 120v outlet only works with on shore power. Has anyone changed it to the inverter or wired it to trailer plug so its cold going down the road? I'm looking into it now as that is the only drawback on our Sierra 360 pdek. 2nd trailer with the OK. love it

outside ref.

Compact refrigerators generally use 50 watts or less so a portable inverter should work.

If you pack it fairly full and get everythjng nice and chilled then unplug just before leaving , everything will stay cold for 3-4 hours easy.......even in 90 degree temps.....

One of our camping friends throws a chunk of dry ice in the freezer portion and says it stays way way cold!!

Now to your original question, on my old lacrosse I had installed a 1000w inverter anyway, so I had thought about plugging it in while driving, but it was 30+ feet from my inverter....didn't feel like running cables since it stayed cold on trips anyway...

My new rig has a small outside fridge and a residential fridge and both run on the 1000w inverter. ...the small fridges don't pull many amps/watts except at startup...

My door hinge is failing yet again!
It has been warrantied twice since 2011. Obviously a design flaw. Truly I want to keep this rig I love the layout.

Our Catalina 273dbs has a small outdoor kitchen(fridg, sink with no drain!, a propane tabletop grill, counter space) and I can't imagine going without it now. Our sink is on the sliding counter and is a plastic bowl that can be lifted out and dumped. I'm trying to devise a effective drain attachment but haven't come up with anything that will be functional.

Looked at several models with outside kitchens. Asked my bride what she thought and she gave me the "seriously, dear?" look. Ok. No outside kitchen. Cool concept. Keeps the inside from getting smoked up. But I prefer cooking on a grill outside, though.
