Outdoor Refrigerator

Does anyone know if you can keep the outside refrigerator on even when you are not using it for a week or more? Does it get too hot in there? Is there a mod anyone knows of to keep it on? We keep our camper set up all season and do not move it so i would like to keep the outside fridge on. Any thoughts or ideas?

I don't know for if you can or not. Did it come with an owners manual? If so check there first.

Is it vented top and bottom? You should be able to at least run it on electric if it is vented.

I don't see why you can't run it all the time, One thing I did to mine though was added a power strip too it that way once I find the temp I like I will not have to touch the on/off/temp knob again. When I want to shut it off, I just flip the switch on the power strip, and have the ability to plug anything else need be in there.

I to added a power strip and insulation to the sides of the outside compartment you could use a low voltage fan to move the air around

I think the "outdoor" refrigerators are 120 AC power only, so they may not have a vent. I don't know why you couldn't run it all the time.
