    Well my Colman 40qt cooler lasted for less than 6 mnths and that was replacing the main fan at 3 1/2 mnths.

    I need a new cooler I have been looking at both the Igloo and the Coleman.

    any input would be helpful

    the igloo is best. the colmans usually stop working, or at least stop working well after a month or two.
    I've had one for a year and it will just barely keep soda cool you don't dare put food in it .

    The Range roller looks good, but I try to keep my cooler stocked with food, trying not to eat allot of truck stop food. I am hoping to find a 40qt or larger that last for more than 6 mnths. thanks for the input :biggrin_25519:

    Colemans suck. When I save up enough money, I'm going to buy a minifridge.
