On our Jayfeather 29L the outside kitchen fridge is also only electric. Boy if money grew on trees I would have already replaced it with a three way. Even when we plug it in at the house days beforehand and fill it with beverages the cans condensate on way to the lake and the cans slide all over the place

We also keep our TT in a storage facility with no capability to cool off the fridge before heading out. The night before we are leaving we put 8 of those freeze packs you get at Wally World in the fridge and close the door. The next day the fridge temp is down to 40 degrees. Works great for us.

I have the wired fin fan. We are in the same situation. I typically pick it up a day or so before the trip. When I pick it up I turn the gas on, turn the fridge on gas and clip the fan to the fridge. I also turn the vent fan on as soon as I get to the trailer (Maxx air vent is a must IMHO). When I get it home I plug it in and change the fridge to auto. Next I put a gallon jug of frozen water in the freezer we keep in our chest freezer in the utility room. That seems to help cool it faster. My father in law is an HVAC tech and says the more cold stuff you can put in there the faster and easier it will cool. Also typically put a bunch of frozen icee pops in there, donít care if those melt a little. After it has cooled (about 3 hours) I put the sodas in there and take the frozen water jug out. I read that putting frozen items I there (Icee pops) help cool it down faster. If there is no chance of rain I open the windows and allow the trailer to cool down before I go to bed and close it up. In south Texas we have camped in 100 F weather with only a little shade and have no problem keeping ice-cream and Icee pops frozen the entire trip.

If were not going to bring ours home to load up we go up and turn the gas on in the morning and start the frig and its plenty cold after work when we load it before heading out. If we bring it home to load then we run it off of electric and start it the night before we leave so it's cold the next afternoon when we load it. We are lucky enough now to have it stored 15 minutes from our house.
