Thanks
For me they fit best into the current space, as I have side by side, fridge and freezer that currently use 17 amps an hour (for Rick B, that's 204 watts) PLUS 3 (40 watts) for the Inverter.

Either of these (both use Danfoss BF35 Compressors) at max use 8.4 amps or should average around 5 amps, 60 watts.
So 244 watts vs 60 watts, or 1/4 the power consumption. This would virtually eliminate my need to run the gen while anchored.
