Tell Me About The Electric Refrigerator
Refrigerator 3E (2.7 CF) — is included in the Standard Equipment Package. It pulls only 3.6 amps when running on 12V. It can be exchanged for options below.
Electric Refrigerators are far more popular than the Three-Ways with Sportsmobile owners. Electric Refrigerators cool with a very efficient sealed compressor. You do not need to park level. No outside van vents are required.
When you are driving or parked, the Refrigerator runs off the 12V Auxiliary Battery. The 4E draws 5.6 amps. When you park and your Auxiliary Batteries are fully charged, you can normally run two to three days depending on other 12V items being used. If batteries run low and you want more time at the same place, run your van’s engine for a short time or take a side trip. You can also add a 12V Solar Panel Charger (o) to help keep your Auxiliary Batteries charged.
What Is A Three-Way Refrigerator? (o)
Refrigerator 4EP (3.6 CF) (o) runs on 12/110V or propane (o). You must park level with a Three-Way Refrigerator. Three-Way Refrigerators cool by way of an absorption process. They take several hours to make ice. Outside vents in the van’s side are required. A Three-Way Refrigerator, when on 12V, will only maintain the refrigerator’s initial temperature. It will also drain the Auxiliary Battery in several hours when parked.
We recommend the Three-Way Refrigerator only if you are going to be parked for extended periods of time and will not have an 110V hookup, or Generator.
Note: We’re no longer offering this refrigerator due to low demand.
Norcold electric refrigerators have proven to be highly reliable and efficient over the decades.
Electric refrigerators use a quiet hermetically-sealed compressor. There’s no need to park level — up to 30°. The amperage draw is quite low with improved cooling performance in higher ambient temperatures. They cool down fast, there’s virtually no maintenance and no outside vents.

“We were told that most owners choose the 4E refrigerator. We couldn’t resist the 7E. One reason was the big freezer.”

The Isotherm Cruise 195 Stainless Steel (INOX) Marine Refrigerator / Freezer is an upright combo unit that features the refrigerator on top and a deep freezer on the bottom. Each section features its own separate compressor and thermostat control for superior reliability and performance in an upright fridge / freezer.
The Cruise 195 refrigerator section is on top for convenience and features molded-in cradles and door shelves for rugged durability and plenty of room for food and beverages. The top refrigerator section has an innovative cooling evaporator protected by an aluminum shield with built-in air circulation fan that pulls cold air across the evaporator and circulates the air in a convection to keep temperatures the same on top and bottom shelves. A condensation tray positioned under the evaporator captures condensate and channels it out the back, into an evaporation tray. This helps keep the Cruise 195 refrigerator section free of frost issues.
