Tell Me About The Electric Refrigerator
Refrigerator 3E (2.7 CF) — is included in the Standard Equipment Pkg. It pulls only 2.5 amps when running on 12V. It can be exchanged for an optional 4E (3.6 CF) for Sprinter, Ford or Chevy vans. Sprinter vans will also accommodate a 7 CF model.
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 2.8 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 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 a 110V hookup, or Generator.
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.

Refrigerator 4E (3.6 CF)
Refrigerator 7E (Freezer 1.76 CF, Refrigerator 5.3 CF)
"We were told that most owners choose the 4E refrigerator. We couldn't resist the 7E. One reason was the big freezer."
—Julia and Tom Hendricks
Dometic 3-way absorbtion type refrigerators have been available for more than 50 years. Three-way Dometics cool by way of an absorption process. You must be parked level. We recommend 3-way refrigerators only if you are going to be parked for extended periods of time without a 110V hookup or generator. Three-way refrigerators are an additional cost option in place of the standard equipment 3E electric.
