Can't fault it


Our fridge permanently runs in our caravan and i can't fault it . It was very easy to install and is also very energy efficient . We would definitely buy another. It is very easy to clean and has a great travel catch to stop it opening during travel. Perfect

Questions & Answers

Shaun Chambersasked

Hi, Is it possible to run this Fridge on a 240/12v transformer?
If so, is it the transformer advertised in your accessories section?
I am a bit confused on what the power options are for this fridge.

Hi Shaun, the DC65-X will run on 12V or 24V. Most of our customers run the fridge directly from the DC battery bank. Alternatively you could run it from 240V using a 240V to 12V transformer. Cheers.

Hi Paul, thanks for your prompt response.
If I have the fridge wired into the DC system in the van can I also use the plug in transformer for when the battery runs down?

Paul - Bushman FridgesBushman Fridges

Hi Shaun, yes you could plug in a transformer if the batteries are getting down. I think the better option is a smart battery charger, this will maintain your batteries when on 240V and the fridge can continue to run from the batteries while the charger is plugged in. The charger will provide the additional power that the fridge draws.



I am very interested in the dc65x fridge, but would like to know the inside dimensions of the fridge, especially the dept of the shelves. and is there anywhere in South Australia I could go to to have a look at these fridges?
kind regards, Els from Goolwa SA
