Edgestar Fridge/Freezer

The Edgestar DC fridge one of the most reasonably priced units in its class on the market. They’re really a terrific deal if you can catch one open box or scratch and dent on Compact Appliance. Although they are called “fridge/freezers”, they have a single internal compartment and can only be used as one or the other at once. Thus, I am adding a second 86qt unit. Both will be run 24/7 by the PV system.

So far, I have one panel mounted over the westy top. The second will mount over the cab, but I have yet to weld up a rack to hold it. The panels weigh about 20Kg each, which is definitely noticeable when opening the pop top. I may add some gas pistons to make roof operation easier.

Does anyone recognize what these custom mounts used to be?

Well, do what it says dammit.

230 Watts.

My other rig. No, not the van.


A little extra security.

Not a bad pattern at 15 meters.

One thing about the mog, it seems to get upset if you spend too much time on paved surfaces. It will then show its anger by being cantankerous.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned for tire carriers, welding, motorized bicycles, and other shenanigans.
