The TF49DC Truckfridge refrigerator has been designed and tested to give years of performance and reliability.

The 12V DC power supply makes the Truckfridge especially versatile. The power source can be a battery, a surge protected DC transformer or a solar panel. Note. Never connect the Truckfridge directly to a battery charger. A battery must be used inline to protect the compressor Electric Control Module (ECM).

The TF49ACDC is a TRUE 12-24VDC, 110-220VAC compressor refrigerator with freezer and uses the world famous Danfoss/Secop BD35F-HD heavy duty compressor for unsurpassed reliability, durability and performance.

The high quality components used in the production of the TF49ACDC result in low power consumption (will not kill your batteries) and higher quality than most OEM refrigerators. The TF49ACDC is built tough ... built to last ... and comes with a unconditional two year warranty.

The refrigerator holds bottles in vertical and horizontal positions. The fan-cooled compressor unit is integrated on the upper part of the refrigerator. Installation frame, adjustable thermostat and interior light are all standard features at no additional cost.
