Keep Your Beer Cold and Your Battery Charged

Episode description

Do you need a car fridge? The answer is no. Not if you like having less storage space for your travels, paying more for your groceries away from the major centres, and limiting the food you can take on day trips. Or warm beer. But how should you power it? The answer is... it depends. Can you rely on the built in low voltage cut-off that some fridges have built into them? A dual battery set-up may be overkill for you. If you have one, you may not need to have it wired in to your main system. You may need one wired in... but how do you make sure it's done properly? Today we're joined by Jason from, where we cover this plus the mistakes he sees on a regular basis with dual battery set-ups. Join the Offroad Living Tribe Facebook Group here: Find us at or
