Just as an aside, it does pay to have a good cooler. I had one of those large ice chests (I call it a body cooler cause it is about the right size and weight when full lol). Filled it to the top Friday at 5pm. It sat outside in the 95 degree heat until Tuesday at 5 pm and it still had several inches of ice in the bottom. I opened it several times a day to get ice and drinks.

Do these ice makers keep ice frozen at all? or is it just another cooler? They came on sale starting tomorrow for $150.

No they just make ice then dump into a basket were they will melt if left in the machine. How ever the melting ice just runs back into the water tank and gets re frooze into cubes again.

Our freezer in the frig has a pan that holds ice. we take ice from the house frig and fill the pan. this usually will last us for 4-5 days for drinks, tea, etc. Course there is only 2 of us. :hihi:

We start out our trip with a gallon freezer bag full of ice. As we use it, we replenish it by using a ice tray and dumping it in the bag. We are only 2 but never have run out of ice.

One thing less to worry about.

Target has their Emerson on sale this week for $119.00. I just picked one up this morning and already had 1 1/2 Walmart bags full of ice. Only thing I wish is 1. the unit kept the ice cooler and 2. it held more than a couple of lbs. So far ours has filled the little holding basket about every 2 hours.

I know in these parts if you take your empty cooler to Mcdonalds they will fill it with ice no charge
