    If Iím just using 12v / 240 will it still need to be vented? The pod will sit behind the driver / passenger seat. I donít really want to be cutting holes in the side of the van

    Exactly. Have a quick read of the instructions for the spacings required. On gas it should have a flue? Also get it plugged in at home and get it working and you'll experience it in operation. As mentioned previously, on 12v it doesn't have a thermostat so (per the instructions) it could actually freeze/damage foods on 12v for extended periods on 12v.

    The plan was to drill some 25mm holes in the back of the pod as itís behind the front cab seats, do you think that would be sufficient enough?
    Cheers mate

    I did built my in and didn't cut a hole big enough (60mm) so at the moment the drawer stayes open when parked up. To be modified later.
    My fridge came with a cigarette plug so i rewired the centre to plus. But i dont think it matter? Heater elements are like light bulbs, work both ways (not led's )

    So I think that these (evaporative) fridges work relative to the surrounding temperature so the better the air flow the colder it will get mate..

    I know my fridges performance varies with air flow ..

    I would look at the recommended clearances, and go from there.

    Hope this helps..
