I also thought that the door latch solution was a bit expensive but after having the loaded freezer drawer open by itself on every good right hand turn despite having a PVC bracket through all the handles, I installed the latch. 10 minute install; no problems at all. The depth was perfect for the Samsung, the width adjustment was very easy. Good instructions and everything fit and worked as designed/advertised.
One of the easiest Bluebird projects I've ever done.

Hot-Diggety! Glad to hear it for him! He must've got tired of sleeping in that over-sized coffin!

Did he go Bird or SOB? In either case, looking forward to seeing it!

I ordered one of those latches for my Samsung. Turns out, the guy that makes and sells them, is located outside of Oklahoma City, and I live outside of Tulsa. Anyway, the guy does not want to sell to Okies, as it would mean a whole bunch of paperwork, taxes, and whatnot. So to make a long story short, he refunded my money to me and sent me a latch for free. What a deal!

I had the privilege of using my new refrigerator this weekend. I travelled the 25 miles down to Georgia Tech on Friday night and tailgated yesterday. I did run the generator the whole time since the WanderBEE would turn in to an oven without AC and I can't sleep when its hot. But, it was nice having the new refrigerator for the size (not that I needed it for an overnight trip).

I did turn off the generator while I was at the game. I was curious as to how much battery it would use. Answer is: hardly any. After 4 hours I was still sitting at well north of 12.5V - probably closer to 12.7-12.8V.

When I got home last night, I decided I would let it run off inverter overnight and see how far down it would run the battery given my previous experience. I shut the generator down at 8:15-8:30pm when I got home. This morning I went out and checked it around 8:45-9:00am - 12.5 hours. The verdict? It was sitting at almost 12.5V - maybe 12.4V. That means it had plenty of battery left. In fact, I am pretty well convinced that the new refrigerator uses less power than the Dometic did running on gas!

All in all, this is proving to be a great upgrade.
