Hi All,

Got a dilema, I am changing my fridge as it has passed it's sell by date.
The thing is I want a fridge to go into a cruiser which will be used, I dont want to flattern my batteries, my pontoon birth has no 240v (genny)and I am not sure of gas due to safety.
Can anybody enlighten me to any of these factors, if the gas is a popular vote then I will have to get a pipe installation.
Any feedback would be helpful.

Agreed, gas fridge seriously dangerous on any boat but near petrol /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif


There was a Petrol fire in a lock 6/7 years ago where the gas fridge off one boat had ignited the Petrol on another boat.

I think it was near Goole/three rivers ?, one boat was filling his outboard tank and BOOOOM

No problem with gas. My 20 year old caravan fridge works fine in the boat. You could pay the extra and get a Dometic marine gas fridge approved for the boat safety scheme which Dometic insist on professionally installing.
No professional installation needed for gas on seagoing boats as they do not come within the scope of the gas legislation.
