    That doesn’t drain battery

    There's one sitting in the dirt near this Love's that I believe someone was not very satisfied with.

    The old standard “Dometic” are probably the best. Usually $600 at a Truck Dealership. They can be found online cheaper. Maybe $400. They draw less power than a standard fridge w/ inverter.

    Dead non working fridge will not drain battery. All others will do. Vevor is good one.

    All fridges or coolers drain the battery. What are you looking for. Compressor driven then dometic would be the best choice. They are designed for trucks.

    I tried to get the kid that just bought my oldest truck a free one from Freightliner.

    They're a $1,000 installed. The fridge itself is $800 dealer cost.

    I got them put in the other trucks, and they work great.

    You get what you pay for.

    I would definitely go with a refrigerator that is 12v. Not a cooler and not a 110v unit. Those refrigerators are not designed for the vibrations that you experience in a semi truck. I have the original refrigerator in my truck and I can leave it on over the weekend and my truck starts fine on Monday.
