    I got a question did you have to extend your power harness for the fridge? I tried routing mines and its short.

    Yes, it's the dometic outlet. One of them is the standard "cigarette socket" The other is the ARB/Dometic specific socket. For those who don't know the tip of the dometic/ ARB "cigarette socket" unscrews, there is another socket underneath that will screw into the plug making it "impossible" or really hard for it to fall out of the plug since it is screwed in where the regular one can fall out.

    I used the supplied wires that came with the plug, it is tight, I wish I had about another foot or so in length to give a little more wiggle room. I didn't want to splice more wire to make it longer. It is connected to my switch pro so I can power the outlet from inside the cab. Initially I wanted the fridge mount and power on the passenger side, but because of the length of wire I went driver.

    I have a family of 4 as well but also frequently travel with other people and end up being the gear truck a lot. Because if this I went with the Dometic 80, it has two chambers that can be set independently. FOr really long trips 10+ days I use once side to freeze Ice packs and then utilize an additional Yeti cooler for tons of space. When that much space isn't needed I either shut off one side or run both as refrigerators. It charges of the truck when driving (Cig port) and then I run it on a Goal Zero 1000 at night that I recharge with a 200 Watt Panel. The setup is by no means the cheapest... but it can provide enough to travel for up to three weeks with no civilization.

    The same setup with a smaller Dometic fridge and smaller Zero unit would be a great setup for a week.

    I would swear by Dometics... I used to install their big chest fridges all over the world for UNICEF and the WHO for Vaccines in Health Clinics. They are tough and rarely break.

    I ordered it after googling alot to find out what was this two pin plug that dometic couldnt explain or put a picture of it. I tried routing the wires to the battery and it fell short. I used the same hole you used and tried routing the wires threw the chassis. Ill be needing maybe 5 ft of more power wire.

    I know this won’t help you since you got it figured out. But I’m putting this here to help others. Because I had the same questions as you

    The dometic outlet has 2 outlets. 1 is the standard “cigarette outlet” or whatever it’s called. The other is an arb/dometic specific plug both companies use the same plug. When you get your fridge it looks like a standard plug but if you screw off the top there is an arb plug underneath. This works great for fridge slides because it can be screwed into the outlet and avoid it popping out when something yanks on the cord.

    Given the family we've launched something that might be of interest to you. We have a 55L CFX3 cooler now that can also make ice using a freeze plate. It might be a little small for the length of trips you are planning but I wanted to at least throw it into the mix ;)

    More info on the CFX3 55IM can be found here

    Good luck with the research. There are a lot of great options available now!
