    Does this tweet from EM today mean we are getting power for the cooler up to 48 hrs when parked?

    That is the way I interpret it.

    PS - I went with the ARB 37 and love it. It is super durable (meaning once I am at my destination, it handles anything I throw at it). It is super easy to maintain (washes out easily), use, and store (the fact that the lid completely removes with ease means you can store it without worry of mold, etc from the top being sealed). All around, great product!

    Initially had a koolatron p75. It works well and fits almost flush level with the back seats. However I wanted a real freezer instead. Debated between the cfx-40w and the Engel mt45f-u1 and ultimately decided to pay a bit more for the Engel. It is narrower than the cfx-40w and a bit higher. It is a good armrest for the back seats. I will try and update when I've had it going for a bit. Engel is discontinuing this model for the identically sized platinum version with a bit more tech.

    CF3 looks sweet! My parents got the NEW cheaper version that:
    Dometic CC 40 - Electric Cooler
    Much lighter! Only Refrige - No freezing options. Maybe less efficient and not as durable, but way cheaper.

    I would review all manual WxHxD dimensions. Make cardboard boxes for the one you are thinking about and see how it fits.

    That's what i did and it seems to fit but very tight. Difficult to judge with all the rounding edges of both the dometic and the tesla hood.

    Did you try to fit it in yourself?
