7 weeks top of aus with bushman at-15c

we have just done a trip to Cape York and across the gulf to Darwin, we have ran the fridge as a freezer at -15c the whole time with the extension at 45l for 7 weeks.
Really good effort as only needing generator when cloudy. Fridge has stayed within 2 degrees no worries.
Big effort for a 12v fridge to run as freezer for so long with temps up to 32.
The fridge is a bit more expensive, but the poor man pays twice.
One point is that lid can slide sideways on pins easily, I put an o ring across hinge and that stopped this issue Show details

A very good experience in every way

Quality product and purchase experience was of the highest standard. Met all expectations and it was easier to keep powered up than we thought it would be.

12years in , best fridge out there

I’ve had mine for 12 years now. Variable litreage is genius. Is in perfect order and never skipped a beat in all that time . I have other fridge brands ( Aussie made!) but the Bushman wins hands down on efficiency and power usage. A little surface rust around the venting ( I live near the ocean, I would love a paint code Bushman so I can touch it up! ) but otherwise still perfect. Show details ·  1

Excellent at a portable deep freeze

We bought this to transport some medical supplies requiring a deep-freeze of at least -18, and we're very happy with how it performed! The product is listed as going as low as -18, but you can actually set it as low as -22. It was able to achieve this in 1h and 45min from room temperature, and kept it quite easily in the back of the car during late autumn. Show details ·  1

Perfect design & function

We love our Bushman Fridge. It lives in our car, for camping and as a backup when caravanning. The internal design is flexible and the slide-out function works perfectly. Great product! Show reply

Great fridge

Very impressed by the efficiency of this fridge. Barely drains on the battery at all. Recently took it up to FNQ where it was constantly mid 20s and it did very well. Really like the option of choosing my own size depending on the type of trip I’m on. Costs a bit more than other options but is good value when comparing apples with apples. Highly recommend Show details ·  1

Very happy

Bought a new fridge to replace an old one handed down to me. The old one lasted nearly 20 years. The new one is so much quieter and uses a lot less power. I chose to go with bushman again because I could still use the extension collar and high lid, which suited me because i use the different sizes regularly. The team at Bushman were extremely easy to deal with over the phone and it arrived the day after i ordered it! I also wanted to support an aussie company. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a new fridge Show details ·  1

Hey Tommy. I've tried flicking the override switch and any settings on the main display. I've also unplugged and plugged back in all cables running to the control panel and still displays HI.

Bushman Fridges
Bushman Fridges   DM   

Hi Liam, You might need to turn the fridge off and let it warm up for a few hours, as HI indicates the fridge is too cold.
Before you turn it back on, put the override switch in the OFF position, and make sure the set temperature is in celsius.
