    What an excellent fridge/freezer. Draws very little power, we have not had a meltdown day since we installed it. I now have ice!!!

    Shopping Experience

    Freight took a week longer than promised, Toll Express said their system was down for two days at a critical courier changeover period, I guess there are people out there that would believe crap like that, but not here.

Bushman Upright Mounting Kit

This mounting kit gives a flush finish to the install of your Bushman Upright Fridge inside the cabinetry of your Recreational Vehicle

Product Description:

Bushman DC285L-X 12/24v Upright Fridge/Freezer 285L, 3 year warranty. This is Australia's largest dedicated DC compressor fridge. With a seperate 60 litre freezer and full safety glass shelves, it's a brilliant fridge for houseboats, motorhomes and all off-grid situations.

This is an extra low-power DC fridge with a beautiful black finish. This fridge uses a large, external condenser (heat exchanger) on the back of the fridge to increase air flow which removes heat faster and reduces power consumption. Making it a brilliant, efficient fridge for caravans, RV"s, houseboats, motorhomes and all off-grid situations.

All Bushman DC-L models have powdercoated finished sides, so they can be installed into a cavity or used in a free-standing position.

Features:

  • 12V / 24V DC Operation
  • Large 60 litre freezer
  • Interior LED light
  • Adjustable safety glass shelves
  • Large door storage
  • Reversible doors
  • Tropical 'T' Rating
  • Door latch
Low Power Cooling System :
  • Super efficient design
  • Large, external condenser for maximum heat exchange
  • Built in vertical fan to assist air flow
  • Average 2.4 Amp/hr over 24hrs (25º ambient 4º fridge)

Compressor :

  • Secop Danfoss BD50 Compressor
  • German designed and owned company
  • Powerful and Reliable
  • Draws 4.5A on 12V

This fridge runs on 12 or 24 volt DC power. To run the fridge from 240 Volt mains power, you will need use a Power Adaptor (see Accessory List above)- these are popular for when AC mains power is available and you want to run 12 / 24 Volt DC appliances.

Installation Refer to the Product Manual / Installation Guide for installation instructions from the manufacturer. For optimal performance of RV compressor fridges, we recommend allowing a minimum of 10-20cm behind the fridge / cooling unit and have an extractor fan or install a bottom and top vent if possible, to force the warm air generated by the fridge to escape. As a general rule: The more ventilation you have, the better.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:What are the main benefits of the Bushman DC190L and DC285L fridges?
    A:

    The Bushman DC190L and DC285L fridges offer long term peace of mind. This is because Bushman fridges come with:

    • The Bushman high quality build
    • Full steel fridge cabinet
    • Secop Danfoss Compressors
    • Three-year warranty
  • Q:The Bushman DC190L and DC285L fridges are said to use less power than other brands of the same size, why is this?
    A:

    The Bushman DC190L and DC285L fridges use less power than other brands of the same size because of three reasons:

    1. Thick insulation
      - 80mm freezer
      - 50mm fridge

    2. Big cooling system
      - Massive evaporator (cooling element) in freezer and fridge which cools down faster
      - Oversize condenser (heat exchanger) on back of fridge which gets rid of heat faster

    3. Fixed speed compressor
      - This compressor only draws 4.5 Amps when running, max, ever.
  • Q:I have a danfoss BD50 in my fridge ... it draws 7amps ... I need a new fridge but cannot understand how your BD50 only draws 4.5 amps max .. before I buy ... can you please explain
    A:

    Hi There,

    Bushman adjust the compressor speed so that it runs at the optimum level to get the most efficiency out of the cooling unit. The bigger the fridge, generally the slower we run the compressor. They work better this way.

    That’s why the amp draw is less.

  • Q:Does A Caravan Fridge Need 240V?
    A:

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your question.

    Essentially no you do not always need a caravan fridge with 240V. In fact, some brands, such as Bushman, recommend a 12V fridge only. This is because of the follow reasons:

    1. The fridge will last longer - caravan fridges with 240V built in have a 240 transformer attached to the compressor. This transformer generates excess heat, which in turn reduces the life of the compressor.
    2. The fridge will cool down faster - by removing the 240V transformer from the compressor, the cooling system will produce less heat. This therefore makes it easier and faster for the fridge to cool down.
    3. A 12V fridge costs less - a 12V and 240V fridge requires a qualified electrician to install and service the fridge. Whereas a 12V only fridge is generally cheaper to buy, install and service.
     
    However, having a 240V fridge allows you to connect to AC mains power when available and run 12/24 Volt DC appliances.
     
    A middle ground option is to purchase a 12V Fridge and a Smart Charger, which will maintain your batteries when 240V power is available.
     
    Thanks.
