Van / RV Fridges / VW Westfalia

The TF49 is also ideal for many RV and van applications requiring little or no alterations. The TF49 is also the fridge of choice for older Volkswagen Westfalia and Vanagon van owners. 

Shore Power (110VAC)

The use of shorepower eliminates the need for generators, solar power or running the vehicles engine to recharge the auxiliary deep cycle battery during long stop overs.

TF49DC can alternatively be used in shore power applications where 110VAC power is available. Simply add a 12VDC battery charger always connected to the deep cycle battery. You can plug and unplug the battery charger without affecting the fridge. Alternatively, the TF49ACDC model eliminates the need for an external battery charger.
