ARB Portable Fridge Freezer 37 QUARTS Series I 10800352
ARB fridge freezers are the ideal way to keep your food and beverages chilled or frozen on your 4x4 adventures, regardless of ambient conditions. Not to be confused with less effective 12 volt coolers, the ARB unit is a true refrigerator/freezer. Own one and you'll never again find your lunch water- logged by shifting ice, and there'll always be a cold drink on hand during the sweltering summer months. This compact fridge with its low profile enables placement in pickup beds under the tonneau cover, on top of cargo drawers, suits many compact SUVs and provides for better visual access into the fridge. Great size for a couple as a second fridge the 37QT holds a class-leading 50 12oz cans. Designed with four-wheel drivers in mind, ALL models have a front opening lid creating improved access to the fridge contents and making them a perfect partner for fridge slides. Utilizing the patented ARB hinge system further enhances access to the internal contents. How about this - the internal size is big enough to fit a 2-liter bottle of cola in EVERY model. Two separate power cords are included, one for AC operation (120 volt) at home, and one for DC operation (12/24 volt) in your vehicle.
Tried and tested, the ARB Fridge Freezer has been a staple in the off-roading community for years thanks to its proven performance.

Don't use the freezer to freeze things, it is designed to maintain previous frozen food.
You must independently measure the "real" temperature and then adust the setting . When it is full of food, check both the top and bottom. The top will be considerably warmer. There is a setting to calibrate the thermostat display, but it didn't have the range needed to correct the error. The temp also varies as much as +/- 4 degrees based on thermostat hysteresis. This is needed to prevent cycling the compressor.
Voltage is important. On battery power it can range from 12.8 to 12.0 (don't discharge past 50% capacity). When the ARB draws current, there will be voltage drop across your battery plus the voltage drop in your connection and power cord to the ARB. This can be as much .5 volts. Your ARB may be trying to run on 11.0 volts. There is a setting to lower the "turn off" threshold. If you leave it as the defult "high" setting, you may get the compressor trying to turn on, dropping the voltage, and turning off. When it turns off, voltage drop goes away,and the ARB tries to restart the compressor. This cycling is hard on the compressor. Set the compressor shut down to the lowest voltage. The ARB draws more current when the voltage is low. On a fulll battery it may draw 2.5 amps. At 50% it may draw as much as 4 amps. In 90 degree weather a shaded ARB will require 30 amp hours, daily.
You can insulate the outside of the unit and improve efficiency as long as you don't interfere with the air flow vents on the lower rear. Setting it on an insulated base will also help. Other factors such as the temperature setting and how frequently you open it is a bigger factor.
The ARB is not as large or as heavy as putting two weeks of food into a conventional cooler with enough ice to keep cold.
The compressor section is sensitive to dust. If you can't keep it in a dust-free environment, you need to blow it out before each trip. How long the compressor runs is a function of how much air is moving through it.
I have tried expensive, name-brand coolers; dry ice; portable ice makers. The propane fridge in my RV was too small and the temperature varied with ambient from 45 to below freezing. I have tried solar power. Unless I had direct sunlight, all day, it couldn't keep up. I have resigned myself to running a generator 90 minutes a day. I am happy with the ARB. It is reliable, and reasonably efficient. Life is good.
We bought it for use in our camper/adventure van for camping/surf/mountain bike trips. We plug it into our Goal Zero Yeti1250, which has its own permanently mounted 150watt solar panel for charging. We rarely stay in developed campgrounds and do mostly off grid trips.
The ARB works great and cools as expected for a $$$ 12V cooler. We just got back from a 2 week road trip with the ARB as our only cooler. I did order the canvas travel bag for the ARB, and think it was a good investment, more on that later.
A couple notes in no particular order.
- The ARB requires 80-90 watts for startup power then the power consumption settles into the 55 watt range. (The goal zero has a power consumption display).
- After about 8-9 days of camping (without consistent sunlight for the solar panel), the ARB ran down the Goal Zero Yeti's voltage to where it didn't have enough voltage to start the compressor. We were also using the Goal Zero to run our roof vent, charge cell phones, iPads, run LED lighting, etc. We could hear the compressor trying to kick on, but it didn't have quite enough voltage. Just be aware that the startup requires decent voltage in the battery. This is important for RVs and campervans with a house battery. Plugging in overnight at a campground fixed the issue. Just be aware of battery usage for long trips. Definitely would be possible to run down your car battery with the ARB if you were parked for a few days in a backcountry camp spot.
-the ARB is not insulated like a Yeti or Coleman Extreme, or one of the other high end coolers out there. You can feel cold bleed through the metal parts of the cooler. I bought the canvas travel bag and cut double thick reflectix (foil lined insulation) to go inside the canvas travel bag. You can barely tell it is there and it made a big difference in my ability to feel cold bleed through the cooler. See the attached pics to get an idea of how I added extra insulation to the ARB travel bag. Note that the travel bag does have foil facing, but it is pretty thin. I used a sharpie, straight edge, razor, and shears to mark and cut out double width foil insulation to add to the inside of the travel bag. Took about 20 minutes. Pic of the ARB strapped into our camper van (2007 Ford E350 custom conversion) have the extra insulation installed, you can barely tell it's there.
Overall we are happy with the ARB. Not carrying ice is really nice. We plug the ARB into the campervan 12V outlet when driving, then switch back to the Goal Zero Yeti when parked. For longer trips (we are doing a month long road trip next summer through western Colorado), I plan on chaining in a second 100ah battery to the Goal Zero, primarily for running the ARB for long term off grid use.

Update after 2 years of use:
I have used this for camping, offroading and as an extra 'bar fridge' for parties/gatherings.
It is solid, dependable and is a miser on battery use (I use a trolling motor battery case and AGM battery for offgrid camping). Common sense - start it on 120V cold with cold things in it, when possible. Connect to your 12v cigarette lighter when travelling and before you switch to just battery use. When on battery only, minimize the open/close.
Depending on what I have in it, will add a water bottle to the bottom and set up temp so that it freezes but rest of compartment (above the bottom couple of inches) doesn't freeze. This acts as a cold sink for switching to all battery use. It took a little trial and error to find the freezing point so entire compartment wouldn't freeze, only bottom 4". 27 or 28 degrees F or -6 deg Celcius.
Only negative consideration is that when you pack around it, be sure to leave air space around the back/sides for air flow.
I hope this helps.. it isn't cheap but it's worth it.
The road trip is over and the Fridge Freezer is now plugged in at home and used as a secondary refrigerator.
