coolbox
« on: 05 January, 2013, 19:58:42 »
Hi everybody,
I made some pictures how I placed my coolbox under the charttable.
The ex-quarterberth was locked by a bulkhead to gain a second locker on starboard. The form of the cover construction was taken off from the portside locker.

Hi pretty good idea that one, I am struggeling with the box standing around an dbeing just in the way all the time. Is there sufficient ventilation in the locker? Waeco says that there should be at least 10 cm around the ventilation holes in the box.

The box is installed since 2001 and we had never any Problems. I don`t remember exactly where the ventilation outlet is, but there is enough space at the hull side and to the bulkhead. On the other side the summer temperatures here unfortunately are not carribean... :)

Dirk,

Ok, thanks. Any indication on the running time of the box? Warmer surroundungs should lead to longer working time of the compressor, right?

Thanks for the info.

I don`t have any values for electricity consumption or running time of the compressor but in normal conditions I think the box is working very efficient. The operating noise of the compressor is very quiet.
We had until now only once problems according to battery capacity: a beautiful sailing day (not necessary to use the motor -> no battery charging), long distance trip, air temperature was 30 ° C, and one of the children forgot to close the cover of the box ... ;)
