    I bought the 85L Bushman fridge. Absolutely wrapped in the fridge. The interior design is extremely well thought out. The freezer freezes very well. Above all it use very minimal battery power. Stoked (:

    Changed from a 60l Engle combi on a slide to the bushman 85ltr upright in my canopy set up to reduce weight and gain space. I’m super happy with the quality of this product how much room it has and is so easy to clean opposed to the chest fridge. Massive thumbs up from me.

    Product Review

    Great timely shipping from when I ordered it, was unsure as I’ve always ran chest style fridges.
    Moving away from slides and drop slides this is the best option open your canopy door or wagon rear doors open and get a drink no mucking around.
    And you save weight too!

Product Description

Currently FREE with the Bushman DC85X 12/24v Upright Fridge/Freezer is an Bushman Upright Fridge Mounting Kit (RRP $99)

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 DC85X 12/24v Upright Fridge/Freezer 85L, 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.

Features:

  • 12V / 24V DC Operation
  • 6L Freezer
  • Interior LED light
  • Adjustable shelves
  • Reversible door
Design :
  • Extra low-power design
  • A deeper freezer gives more storage space
  • Large door shelves with rails
  • Stainless steel freezer door

Compressor :

  • Secop Danfoss BD35
  • German designed and owned for over 50 years
  • Powerful and Reliable
  • Variable speed drive (2A - 4.5A)
  • Average 1.25 Amp/hr over 24hrs (25º ambient, 4º fridge)

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.
 Note: The mounting frame does not cover the bottom 2 inches of the fridge. This enables customers to use a timber bead or kickboard.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Hi just wondering how this fridge mounts to the floor? Are extra tie down brackets required?
    A:

    Hi Dean,

    This fridge is designed to fit in to a cavity and is secured using the Bushman Mounting Kit that is currently being supplied free of charge with the fridge.

  • 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:My question is is if I purchased and it needed servicing or repairs to how would I go about this?? I is there some where local Mackay Qld
    A:

    Hi There

    If you required service, please either contact us or Bushman directly.

    They will put you in touch with your nearest repair agent.

  • Q:Hi there just wondering I want to run the fridge of 12 V what is the recommended power cable to be run thanks
    A:

    Hi,

    For wiring optimum results, you will need the correct sized wire depending on the distance from your power supply to the fridge. Wiring must be directly from your fridge to your battery and should be continuous without joins.

    Please also ensure the earth is wired directly to your battery, not to a chasse. If your wiring is insufficient, your fridge may not perform correctly or may be even be damaged.

    For recommended wiring size and length see page 3 of the manual here: https://mygenerator.com.au/media/Bushman_DCX_Fridge_Product_Manual.pdf

  • Q:It looks like by the photos that you can't swap the door to open the other way? Can you order a fridge with the door hinge on the left looking at the fridge??
    A:

    Hi There,

    The door hinge can be swapped around on these fridges.

    All instructtions on how to complete this come with the fridge.

  • Q:Is the Bushman DC 85 x suitable for sailing yacht designed to run while you are listed up to 30° angle. Thanks,
    A:

    Hi There,

    Bushman advise in the user manual that the fridge should not be exposed to angles greater than 30 degrees.

    We would recommend speaking with Bushman for clarification of their use on a boat if it is exposed to 30 degree angles frequently.

  • Q:Does a 2 litre bottle of softdrink fit, in the dc85-x, laying down on the 1st or 2nd shelf?
    A:

    Hi There,

    As the shelves can be adjusted up and down, we see no reason why you could not lay down a 2 litre soft drink bottle on either shelf.

  • Q:How deep is the internal shelf on the DC85X fridge?
    A:

    The internal shelf depth of the DC85X is 320 mm.

  • Q:Hi thereCan you tell me what is the best size fridge to fit in our Jayco Eagle camper?The size of the space it nes to go into is750H x 585D x 510W
    A:

    Hi There,
