    Great - apart from one slight problem.....

    The wiring diagram doesn't match what he actually has, and the 12 v supply has no polarity - I had to take an educated guess for my wiring suggestion and hoped yours would clear any doubt, but it doesn't

    I'll speak to Electrolux in the morning and report their err.
    Theres a few manuals online for the RM212 and clearer than mine.
    Same with this one Reg, you should write and complain Electrofucks RM212F

    Odd, that says there's no thermostat for 12v operation - it just runs constantly???

    If so - polarity doesn't matter for the 12v connection

    Only to be used on 12v when its towed? Didn't see a hitch on the fridge either?

    Yeah the 12v side will only warm the ammonia to maintain an already cooled fridge. Most these fridges are designed to run predominately on gas or 240v. To be honest I thought the wiring diagram was close enough, you can trace the earths and the wiring to the components well enough. Id wire it up and fire it up and see what I have ...

    Mines been running for 6 weeks or so and it's very good on 240vac. Needs a bit of space around it as it gets quite hot so take a note of the installation guide. If you were building it in I suppose you could direct the heat around the van as a heater system perhaps?

    So coach built ones are vented out side as standard (the two horizontal parallel vents can be seen on most vans and caravans with these fitted). Also the gas flue must be vented outside (for obvious reasons). I like the idea of putting it under s SMEV sink/cooker..
