    Couldn't be happier with the fridge. Have it in the back of my 100 series cruiser. Keeps food and beer cold. Easy to access. Was unsure of the upright in the cruiser but just take a bit of time in packing the fridge and nothing moves. More versatile than a standard chest fridge.

    Shopping Experience

    Great experience. Good communication, fast freight. An excellent overall experience, would highly recommend.

    Have been using it for about 3weeks, impressed with the quietness of the compressor, and relatively low temperature control knob setting to keep fridge nice and cold. Not actually living in van at present so fridge doesn't get opened a lot. Will know more after a trip away, but looking good.

    Helpful both before, and quick response to questions after buying.

    Converting a Sprinter van and wanted all the luxuries, the Bushman fridge is as good as they say it is, very quiet, low energy and has loads of space in the 130X version. Very happy with my choice.

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 DC130X 12/24v Upright Fridge/Freezer 130L, 3 year warranty. 

Our DC-X range of mobile fridges are specially designed for Caravans, Boats and Recreational Vehicles.

Recent advances in 12V battery systems and smart battery chargers mean you no longer need a fridge with 240V AC built in. Our DC only fridges are safer, run cooler and are far less complicated - giving you years and years of peaceful enjoyment.

  • 6L Freezer
  • Interior LED light
  • Adjustable shelves
  • Reversible door
Design:
  • Extra low-power design

Finish:

  • Black / Black
  • Interchangeable front panel
 
User Tips:

  • This fridge is designed to run from a 12V DC power source such as your Caravan/Camping battery bank. Running the fridge from a 12V power source will help with the longevity and performance of this fridge. Bushman recommends that when 240V power is available, use a smart battery charger to charge your battery bank and keep your fridge running direct from the batteries. You can see a suitable range of AC to DC smart battery chargers HERE if needed.
  • A small number of customers may want to use this fridge in an 'offgrid living' setup and run the fridge from 240V AC power all of the time - in which case you will need a Power Adaptor to convert AC Power to DC in order to run the fridge. You can see this optional Bushman Adaptor HERE.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Can you get an adaptor for 240v and how easily can you switch power modes ?
    A:

    Hi Bran, you certainly can. One of our more popular adaptors is this Dometic Waeco Cool Power 240 Volt Adaptor, 150W  -  this can be used when 240 Volt AC mains power is available and you want to run 12 / 24 Volt DC applainces. Simply connect this adaptor between the mains power outlet and your DC appliance (in this case a fridge) - this allows you to use mains power when its available instead of using your DC battery power.  Thanks

  • Q:Is this fridge T rated ?
    A:

    Hi There,

    Bushman do rate this unit as T rated. Thanks

  • Q:Hi,will 2 litre milk bottles fit into the lower door pocket of this fridge?
    A:

    Hi There,

    Unfortunately a 2L milk bottle would not fit in the door compartment.

    We would recommend 1L bottles be put in the door.

  • Q:Does the fridge door lock
    A:

    Hi There,

    Yes the door does have a locking latch.

    The door latch prevents unexpected openings of the door when the vehicle is in motion.

  • Q:Is this suitable to go in the back of a canopy for camping and if so how would I mount it to my canopy?
    A:

    Hi Harrison,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    The answer is yes and no!

    You can put a DC-X fridge on a canopy, however it needs to be packed more carefully than a chest fridge, ideally using plastic tubs, so everything doesn’t slide around inside the fridge. This is pretty normal for RV’s anyway.

    The fridge can be mounted in many different ways. It is important to keep the soft rubber feet attached to the fridge as these absorb shock.

    The fridge sheetmetal can be screwed in to using short (<8mm) Sheetmetal screws to affix the fridge to the canopy.

  • 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. Usually a customer who intends to use their Bushman fridge in an 'off-grid' living set up will want to run the fridge from a 240V power source the whole time and therefore use an adaptor. 
     
    The better option for Caravan/Camping use is to run their 12V Fridge from their batteries. Bushman recommends that when 240V power is available, use a smart battery charger to charge your battery bank and keep your fridge running direct from the batteries. You can see a suitable range of AC to DC smart battery chargers HERE if needed.
     
    Thanks.
  • Q:Has the fridge an interior fan
    A:

    Hi There,

    No sorry, there is no internal fan in this fridge.

  • Q:When not using DC-X Bushmans van fridge it is recommended to leave door ajar when not turned on. How do I turn off interior light
    A:

    Hi There,

    If the fridge is turned off, the internal light should not be illuminated at all.

  • Q:I have noticed that for another brand of fridge you quote the power consumption [aA/h] for 240V use, without actually noting this, but confirmed from manufacturer's website.Is the A/h consumption rate for this fridge also for 240V use. It is very low fo
    A:

    Hi There

    The information supplied for this fridge is on 12V DC.

    We would not have AC power ratings for the Bushman as it is stricly a 12/24V fridge only.

  • Q:Hi,Would 1.25L bottles fit in the door? I noted your reply about the 2L milk bottles not fitting so wondering if a 1.25L soft drink bottle would fit?Thanks
    A:

    HI There,

    We would expect a 1.25L bottle to fit just fine in the door.

  • Q:Hello My Generator,Question regarding mounting the 130 Bushman. The <8mm screws you mention for attaching direct to the outside of the fridge metal skin, can these only be screwed in certain areas? Ie I am using the mounting kit but also want to fix the
    A:

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    Screw should only be inserted where the installation frame connects to the fridge.

    There are no other locations on the fridge that we are aware of that can accept screws without potentially causing damage.

    For further installation assistance we would recommend calling Bushman on 03 9437 0737
