Note the Velcro straps on it. I had to put them on it to keep the wind from blowing the doors open because I'd let it set so long on rough ground that it got a little warped and cause the doors not to stay shut good. Hopefully now that its level that will reverse its self? If not then I'll just have to deal with the Velcro.
I need to modify the lid to the ice chest where I can put it on and get it off easier than I can now because it is a very tight fit. Once I do that I can stock it with hot sodas and other condiments that are hot and it won't effect the fridge much at all. It will just slowly cool them down until they reach the inside fridge temperature. Its been a major problem to do that before because the fridge was running way over time just trying to chill the hot stuff.
I picked up that ice chest on the bench at the Study Butte Store way back before it closed and its been in the tank every since. There were a lot of mouse droppings on it as well as mouse urine stains on it so I had to clean it well also with the bleach based cleaner. Damn mice and rats!!!
I'll still have the use of the crispers in the bottom and the door storage plus the room above the ice chest so will have more than enough room for about anything I want to put in there. Once stuff in the ice chest finally reaches inside fridge temp I'll be able to move some of that stuff out to either the crispers, door space or above the ice chest and restock the ice chest.
I figure once I get the fridge restocked, get a couple of bags of ice in the freezer and other stuff in there I just might be able to squeak by several cloudy days without the batteries going to low. I'll add and remove a bag of ice as I need more room in the freezer for frozen food.
I'm also going to be out shortly moving some panels from the trailer's bank to the main battery bank because I don't need so many on the trailer. Also have others that I've never even wired up and will be adding them to the main bank. That should help a lot on cloudy days to.
My nephew is supposed to be coming up with 8 good used batteries before long and I'll be able to add those to the main bank, BUT I'll have to ditch the small battery hut and build a utility room to move all of them and the electronics in to. With that many batteries and solar panels running the AC also shouldn't be a problem probably running it 24 hours a day. That will give me a total of 14 batteries.
Since the It'll Du has outlived its usefulness its quiet possible that I'll add on to it and the old shower and turn that in to the utility room to keep from having to start from scratch. Of course it will receive a full make over in the process and the old business part (the Pooper) will be removed. ;)
