    Screenshot_20201225-155858_Amazon Shopping.jpg I have a Coleman 40 Qt Cooler. I drive a Volvo car hauler day cab. I verified the correct fuse size for the cig lighter circuit.
    My problem is that it blows fuses. I mean it'll work for about a day or two and then it will blow a fuse. I've actually had this cooler for quite a while and it was stored in storage for about 5 years. The last time I used it I had a sleeper model truck and I don't remember having this problem. A while back I attempted to change my eating habits by using a cooler and creating meals at home. I stay in hotels every night and I'm gone for about 4 nights a week. So my question is, do any of you know of a great cooler that is approximately 40 quart and draws low current? Or maybe you may have some suggestions based on the information that I submitted?
    Oh and one more thing. Many coolers run continuously. I think that's a big part of the problem. Be nice to find one that stops for awhile to let things cool down.

    it blows fuses cause something is wrong with it. like the fan is not spinning freely etc. 40 watts isnt even a 1/2 amp.

    Update:
    I dropped my truck off at the shop. They're going to hardwire it down to the battery with an inline fuse on the positive cable and a switch.

    As the fan gets dirty or the fan bearings get dirt or wear it will draw more power.

    Thermoelectric cooling sucks some big juice. Just grab one of the $600 Amazon fridges, I love mine.
