guess I will be staying with 'the' tried/true "real - Ice Chests"!! after reading the 'Ryobi" instruction Manuel...... Socal Tom :thumbsup: Thank you for posting this Ryobi info - Guess, if there was any space for one in a teardrop - you could almost use this -so called 'cooler' for an 'air conditioner' inside - if you had any ice 'available' after that HOT day of camping - that is...... :roll: .................take care

I just saw some powered coolers/refrigerators on Amazon by Alpicool for very affordable prices. A 55 qt Alpicool was $319 and comes with a 12 v and 120 v adapters. There are also some other “generic” brands for similar prices. By the time you buy 2 lesser coolers or a root molded one your getting close to or beyond $300.

On the subject of "ice chests", and this will be of no help to this thread, I recently sold a Coleman ice chest (real name) to a guy who was big in to vintage 60's camping. I bought it with the idea of converting it into a kegerator. After a bit of research I figured the last thing I should do was cut it up as thee things are quite rare, especially if complete and in dent/rust free condition. It had the same dimensions as coolers of that era but it was used in the upright position. The guy was quite excited to get it.
