My misses bought me a top of the range Dometic 41L ACX 40G (3 way) last year which works on £2 camping gas cartridges.

The first time I fired it up it packed in. I thought it was me. I must have spent hours messing about with it. In the end I phoned up the retailer and they took it back. All confidence evaporated I decided to sack it off and got a refund. £325.

Anyway I got through last year with a 28L Coleman Extreme coolbox, but this year I treated myself to a 40L Icey-Tek cube coolbox which I understand will keep the contents frozen or near as for 5 days. Under £150 with a 15% off code.

Should keep the beer chilled

Have Dometic for 10 years, works on 220, 12 and gas... I run it on 5 or 9kg bottle, works great just needs to be leveled properly.

I have had a Dometec fridge for 2 years, no problems so far, I only run it on the small butane gas cylinders which you can get for about £1.35 if you buy in large quantities (Ebay).

The chain of shops that sell the cheap gas is called Action, there are loads of branches everywhere in France.

brilliant fridges, run off 12V car charger when travelling and then gas once lakeside. Use mine on 2-4 week trips with large gas bottle and is perfect.

Agreed, Dometec is a great bit of kit and you can get the cannister for a chain of shops in France for around 1.5 Euros!

I can highly recommend the Dometic Combicool ACX3 40.Itís what I take to France and 1 little gas cylinder last for about 36 hours on full and keeps all you food either frozen on full wack or chilled on half power.

Can anyone recommend a good 3 way fridge that can be run on gas for foreign trips. Itís just to keep food cool so we donít need to go to the shop every day.

Will look to pick one up second hand as on a budget but would like some names of ones that people have used and work?

Thanks
