Whether you’re living the RV lifestyle, or just want to make your next vacation a bit more comfortable, a quality fridge is a must. Unlike other appliances, RV fridges are built with the expectation of being used on roads that are not completely flat and in temperatures that range from very hot to very cold. Having a refrigerator that is designed to stand up to these conditions makes the difference between your food being safe to eat and having to toss it in the trash when it becomes too warm to keep at room temperature.
Norcold refrigerators are some of the best RV refrigerators on the market. They have a reputation for being quiet and reliable and have the ability to cool and freeze foods. They can be powered by electricity, LP gas, or both and are the perfect choice for the family on the go.
The Norcold Polar series is a line of residential-style 12V DC compressor refrigerators that are ideal for your motorhome, travel trailer, or camper. These units are built with a hermetically-sealed compressor and CFC-free insulation foam to help keep your food fresh and cold. They also feature reversible stainless steel doors and travel latches for added security during transit.
The Norcold fridge works by using a boiler to heat up ammonia and water and separate the two liquids. The heat from an electric heater or LP gas flame boils the ammonia, which then turns into a gas, while the remaining water remains as a liquid. The ammonia gas then rises into a different chamber to absorb the heat from the air in your freezer or fridge and return back to its liquid state. This cycle is repeated as often as needed to maintain a colder temperature in your refrigerator.
