New 12-volt RV fridge debuts

The following is based on a press release
Furrion has unveiled its new ARCTIC series built-in 12-volt refrigerators. The line offers four finishes — black, matte black, stainless steel and all-new black stainless steel — and is available in eight and 10 cubic foot models.

“Our new line of refrigerators are designed to give consumers the best cooling performance while delivering the comfort of safety while on the road,” said Matt Fidler, co-founder and chief marketing officer for Furrion.

Furrion Arctic 12-volt refrigerators are equipped with a powerful but quiet compressor that produces consistent cooling even through fluctuating outdoor temperature conditions. It also effectively removes heat during cooling, avoiding temperature buildup.

The units will work on uneven terrain or slight inclines without compromising efficiency. They feature a new 12-volt compressor that uses a non-flammable, non-corrosive and ozone-friendly refrigerant versus gas absorption technology, providing safe operation and maximum efficiency. In addition, the refrigerators can maintain temperatures up to 60 hours with a standard battery.

Arctic’s internal components include an integrated discreet door latch which ensures fridge doors will not accidentally open when the RV is moving. Shelving is securely mounted inside the cavity and intended to prevent children from removing the shelving to get inside the refrigerator.

Unlike traditional absorption refrigerators that utilize LP gas and ammonia, Furrion’s refrigerators use a safer R134A refrigerant for cooling, which is non-flammable and non-corrosive.

Good to hear .. more competition, always a good thing. Though our 5th wheel, bought used, has a residential ‘fridge, our preference is a regular RV ‘fridge.

Has anyone replaced their Norcold with one of these?

Good to see another entry in this market — but it draws TWICE the current of my Novakool RFU9000.

Our 2011 Livin’Lite 13QBB came with a 120v AC dorm sized refrigerator. We run it from an inverter on the road and shore power at the campsites. It has worked very well. The only problem is that it sometimes gets too cold and freezes items.

Why don’t they make a 12v/Propane/120v model! I have a regular house 120v fridge, but know there are many that would love an efficient fridge than the old ones!
You’d probably want to add solar to keep up with the occasional dry camping, and have some good AGM batteries at the least!.

The only problem with Furrion Refrigerators is the Fact that they don’t have ICE MAKERS in them. That goes for any of their models! That is a NON-Starter for me!
