Absorption Fridges (3 Way Fridge)
These units are popular due to the fact that they can be powered in a variety of ways. They are the only type of fridge that can be powered using Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). These fridges can also run off 12v battery power, and 240v mains power. As these units do not have a compressor, the operation is very quiet. These fridges take a longer amount of time to cool down, but are very useful if you are caravanning off the beaten track and are not likely to find a powered camp site. Absorption fridges are available in two layouts.
Front door opening fridge units can be installed into the caravan cabinetry, and are a permanent addition to your caravan. Portable fridges are top loading, and can be easily moved from inside the caravan. However as with all gas appliances, if the unit is being powered by gas suitable ventilation is required. All front door opening units will have proper ventilation built behind the fridge, but a portable 3-way fridge should not be run on gas inside your van.
This is extremely dangerous, and will eventually consume all of the oxygen within a closed space. Absorption fridges come in a variety of sizes. For help in choosing the best fridge for your caravan, please contact APRACS.
