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.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
