AC/DC Coolers

6 posts in this topic

Was wondering if anyone out there has one that they like? I will be going on a trip and need to bring juice and pop for the kids and looking to also use it in the boat. Thanks in advance.

We have one here and it works great for exactly those purpose's.. also comes in handy at picinics, etc when kids are endlessly heading to the cooler for pop or juice. I got lucky and found mine at a garage sale for $10. They are great in the vehicle if you have the room (van, minivan, larger SUV, motorhome)

I have a small Coleman unit. Works great in the truck. Keeps the pop cold. I don't know how long it'll run before draining a 12v battery thou.

I have the larger Coleman unit that we bring camping as an auxiliary unit. It''ll drain your battery in a hurry if you're not running off a power source but works great otherwise. I also have both sizes of the Extreme coolers. They'll keep cubes alive for five days in 90-degree heat. You can keep meat frozen for a few days by putting it with ice in a foam minnow bucket or chest and then putting it in the Extreme.

I have a 40 quart one that I use in the summer when I am on the road doing construction. I have it in the back seat of my pick up it is great. It will draw on the battery pretty hard. I forgot and left it plugegd in for 10 hours one day and my truck wouldn't start. It is nice because you don't have to worry about getting ice or having water all over if you keep it in the cab. Plus it does cool everything down pretty nice if you put something warm in there it takes about 2 hours to cool it down.

Not sure about all of them but, if you reverse the connector cord, on mine, it'll keep things warm too. I've never tried it thou.

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
