    Product Review

    Having now acquired a slide on camper, I needed a fridge with a front door, not a lid, like my Scorpion esky style fridge.

    The Bushman DC50X looked good, but seeing as this is going to be travelling widely in Australia on solar, it also needed to be efficient and use little power.

    A quick read of the specs and all looked good. Check of the dimensions, yep, that'll fit nicely. Ordered, excitement levels raised, then sent through the roof, when it arrived on a small pallet! This is quality and caring.

    But I digress. What about the fridge? As my title states, perfection . . . Simple!

    I ordered the 240v adapter so, I could test it prior to installation. Plugged in and saw the fan turning, but no noise. Opened the door . . . WOOOOOOOOWWWW! A brilliant BLUE LIGHT. I use a blue light in my 4x4 cabin for lighting, as it doesn't blow out your night vision. That impressed me.

    But wait . . . Still no noise? Ummm

    Waited 5 minutes and still no noise! Worry and concern start to rise, but then I thought, hang about, Ned the door, lifted the freezer door (Oh, did I forget to mention it has a dedicated FREEZER section? And the flap has a magnet to hold it up, brilliant) but again I digress, I reached back and 'Hello', icy cold metal in the freezer, the fridge is working. But still no noise ! ! !

    So basically, this is the ideal small 12 volt fridge. With the provided mounting frame installation was simple. The materials are quality. No plastic everything, but proper steel body. The plastic inside feels thick and strong. The freezer has a great lift up flap style door, which has a magnet to hold it up. The main fridge rack/shelf has a fold up section to provide space for tall items. And the light is BLUE ! ! !

    As I am fitting out for extended trips, I needed a fridge that didn't suck the expensive AGM batteries to death. This draws an average of .5 Amp per hour. Look closely there is a point mark in there, it is 1/2 an Amp per hour! That makes everything else I saw, including one that claims it is revolutionary using only 6 Amps an hour! WTF?

    This fridge is exceptional. It is small, absolutely quiet, gets to and maintains the desired temperature quickly and easily. It has a BLUE light inside.

    If you are looking for a small, lightweight, quiet, efficient fridge, which you could even run in the back of a station wagon for camping, this is it.

    Shopping Experience

    A great experience, as simple as that. I ordered the fridge and 240v adapter. I was surprised by a call from a staff member asking if I would like a plug installed. OK, yes please. Unit arrived ready to run, straight out of box. The packaging was exceptional, being a small the fridge more than secured and safe from bumps or scrapes. I will be back to buy more items as I need them. Very impressed. Will be recommending to friends for sure.

Installation Refer to the Product Manual / Installation Guide for installation instructions from the manufacturer.

As a general rule: The more ventilation you have, the better.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • 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.
