DC130-X review

published

The Fridge was easy to install in our Caravan. Work well in high heat conditions. Doesn’t use to much power. A 120 watt solar panel seems to be able to keep the Batteries charged.



Purchased in February 2021 for $1,299.00.

Does Exactly what it's suposed to do

published

Used as main caravan fridge and free camping. Keeps a very stable constant temp and the compressor cycles a lot but seems low stress and trues consumes a lot less power than our old competitor brand compressor fridge. Quality is exceptional and the valy=ue for money was unbelievable.

easy to fit into same location as old fridge with minor cabinet work. works great in the heat with very little current draw, it also allows me to travel long distances and keep the fridge running on the move keeping things nice and cold.

great upgrade

published

replaced 3 way dometic with dc130-x minor cabinet adjustments to fit but well worth the effort. Low power draw and impressive performance even on a day with internal van temperature of 45 degrees on setting 3 sits pretty much on 3 - 4 degrees. Freezer is small but use a 40ltr Engel as a freezer so is no concern

Replacement for 12V/240V

published

So far this fridge has been outstanding. Power consumption is just over half of our previous caravan compressor fridge. Climate since purchase has been mild, so can’t comment on QLD summer temps yet, but so far so good.

perfect and reliable

published

bought for caravan. temp range on last holiday was 2c to 36c outside. it didn t waiver. set temp to 3.5 and food remained beautiful. even to say the bagged lettuce lasted for 5 days... it has heaps of room including freezer room. door space is useful. had 2 waeco/dometics and they are useless compared to this one.
cant fault it.. hope it lasts

Bushman DC130-X

published

Purchased as a replacement for another brand fridge in our camper that we were not happy with. Bushman power consumption is considerably less and it cycles less. Would prefer two crisper trays to make it easier to access them with a partially open door. A latch which allowed the door to be left partially ajar would also be useful for ventilation when stored. Otherwise great product.

Very quiet and efficient

published

This fridge is much quieter and more efficient than the fridge we previously had in our camper trailer.

The only issue I have with it is a design one - I would prefer two small crisper bins instead of the single large crisper bin this fridge has so that I don't have to open the fridge all the way to pull out a crisper bin. Our previous fridge had two small crisper bins which meant it was possible to pull out one (and slide the other over to pull it out if necessary) without having to fully open the door.

Apart from that (and the fact we can't store our magnetic pot mats or magnetic stubby holders on the fridge door anymore) my husband and I are very happy with this fridge and have had no hesitation in recommending it.

Great bunch of guys at Bushman, helped me on a one to one base. The fridge is working in the caravan, and doing a great job, very pleased with the performance in cooling and freezing. We use it for keeping our Milk, Butter, some soft drinks and a few Beers.I am very impress with the Fridge, a great 12v. system.

Plastic clip together was connected to the fridge and male plug was supplied to connect to your battery.

Yes there are 2 male spade connectors. You can use these or cut them off and solder, or use your preferred plug / socket combination.

I have a Dometic 150l 3 way fridge (RM2553) in my caravan.

Will this fridge fit in the same cut out as a direct replacement? If not is there something more suitable in your range?

Hi Berocca,
Based on the dimensions I can find online, it should definitely fit.
But the best thing to do before you buy a fridges, is to slide your current fridge out a few inches and measure the cavity dimensions so you can be 100% sure.
Thanks, Tom.

Agree with Tom.
In my case it fitted in the space of the 90l Dometic 3-way
