Bob will present an overview of refrigeration design and technologies available to the cruiser. Refrigeration typically represents the single biggest power drain onboard, in many cases more than all other loads combined. For this reason this discussion has as much to do with energy management as it does managing food storage temperatures. Examples of efficient box design and types of construction material will be covered as well as possible improvements that could be made to existing boxes. AC, DC and engine driven condensers will be discussed, including the latest variable speed control units. A general explanation will be given of a typical refrigeration circuit as it pertains to troubleshooting and diagnostics.
