This Thetford N112 refrigerator is a great little fridge that works perfectly with three power sources. You can cool this this fridge on 12 volt DC power from your vehicle cable while you are towing with your car. Once your caravan is parked up and plugged into the site’s 240 volt AC ‘lecce’ to operate from the mains. Or if you are off grid it will work perfectly by its self with only a propane or butane gas supply. It does NOT need any other AC or DC input for the fridge to work to 100% efficiency. But you probably will want to connect a low wattage 12 volt supply to power the interior LED light to see inside your fridge when the door opens. It’s located under the ice box!
As you can see the fridge is very tidy and mainly in very good condition, but the only thing I would like to draw to your attention is on photo No. 7 of 17 there are a couple of screw holes being covered up by grey tape by the door locking mechanism. Whilst here there is a plastic locking arm that pops out and keeps the fridge door slightly ajar which I never knew about. You can just see it on picture No. 2 of 17 top left and it links into the slot on picture No. 7 of 17.
This little used Thetford N112 was removed from a 2005 Hobby caravan. The video below shows four settings on the control panel and the simple gas operation and ignition of the fridge, demonstrating that it is in fine working order and ready to be fitted into your motor home or caravan.
It has been tested on all three power sources and is in excellent working condition. As you can see the refrigerator has a stepped base to fit over the caravan road wheel. It goes without saying that this needs to be fitted by a registered and competent caravan gas fitter as a Co2 baffle also needs to be installed to keep poisonous Co2 gasses from entering the caravan living space.
