Bus Refrigerator by David G
Post New Message Considering house refrigerator vs RV refrigerator for my school bus conversion. Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on this? The house refer has larger capacity, no level problems, no venting required, and costs about 1/3 to buy.
I have a 1500 watt inverter and two 8D house batteries which provide 220 amp hours each or 220 useable amp hours ( 50% discharge)
The refer I'm looking at is 14.3 cu ft Hair. 62"tall X 28" W X 30" deep. $315.00
7 amp max for motor start.
Manufacturer estimates 1.22 Kwhr/ day.
Divided by 110V gives 11.1 AmpHr/ day. Add 10% for system inefficiencies, and another 10% for higher ambient temps gives me an estimated daily usage of 13.5 Amp Hours.
Seems like this would work for me. I am plugged in at home, let the batteries run it for 2 days on the road, and plug in at the campground.
What am I missing?
