What You Should Know About RV Refrigerator

RV refrigerators are generally simple to use, and it is a long lifespan equipment. Generally, there is less trouble happens when using. There are some tips we should pay more attention when we use RV refrigerator.

RV Refrigerator vs household Refrigerator

First, let’s learn what’s the difference between RV refrigerator and household Refrigerator, and why the RV owners choose RV refrigerator but the household Refrigerator, even though the RV refrigerator is more expensive? There are several reasons below:

Running Methods

Compared with household Refrigerators, which can only accept 220V power as the energy source, the RV refrigerator can work with 12/24 V DC power, Solar panel Power station (240W / 500W/ 1000W); and 110~220V Home outlet, wall socket, these three different energy sources.

Energy Consumption

Compared with household Refrigerators, the RV refrigerator is more energy-saving. Because the RV refrigerator is smaller, it consumes less energy than the household refrigerator.

Anti-seismic Performance

Unless home cleaning, we are seldom moving the household refrigerator. The RV refrigerator vibrates slightly when the car is driving, and when encountering bumpy roads, it has to endure a lot of bumps. If it is a household refrigerator, there may be problems soon. But the RV refrigerator  still maintains good performance under such circumstances.

So compared with household Refrigerators, the RV refrigerator is portable, have better anti-seismic effect, while household refrigerators do not have anti bumping characteristics.

Advice for putting food in the RV refrigerator

About how to use the RV refrigerator, some RV owner have the following experience:

Before Leaving

Before you’re driving your RV from home to next travel destination, it is better to cool the food first before you put in the RV refrigerator to reduce energy consumption and prolong the preservation time. To prevent frosting in the refrigerator, please seal the liquid food. Please store the food separately in a sealed box to prevent odor.

When RV Refrigerator is running

Secondly, when the RV Refrigerator is running, make sure that the air vent is not blocked. The refrigerator emits heat from the air vent. So do not cover it with any objects.

Defrosting in time

When the thickness of frost in the refrigerator exceeds 3 mm, it is necessary to defrost the refrigerator, otherwise the cooling system may be damaged.

Remove all food and turn off the refrigerator. Put towels to the bottom of the freezer to absorb water.  After defrosting, dry the refrigerator completely.

Maintenance of refrigerator when not use

The maintenance is fit for both RV Refrigerator and household Refrigerator.

Cleaning the refrigerator

Empty the refrigerator when the refrigerator is idle. The food stored in the refrigerator for a long time will pollute the refrigerator. After disconnecting the power supply and thawing, clean the refrigerator with a soft cloth and warm detergent solution.

And then, wipe with cloth and clean water, finally wipe with a dry-clean cloth. If there is a strong smell in the refrigerator, if it cannot be removed by cleaning, deodorant can be placed in the refrigerator.
