When I installed the new protective cover I tested it for cooling rate and cold retention. Running indoors at 75 F on the 120V converter, the unit (with no divider) cooled to zero degrees in a little over an hour. Using it in my vehicle, it uses much less energy to maintain 30F temperature, even when the vehicle is parked and locked at 85 F. The product is also well designed and rugged looking so it should satisfy our needs for years. Very happy we bought it!
The cover appears to be well made and fits well. I haven't been able to put it to use in warm weather yet. But I believe it will provide some additional insulation and will protect the outside of the fridge/freezer.
Cover is decent. While it does the job of protecting the unit, its have some flaws. Main complaint is the zipper. Considering that besides wearing a hole in the fabric, the main lid zipper will be the main point of failure. It's a generic basic zipper. It needs to have an upgraded type, like one found on suitcase luggage or good duffel bags, since youll be using it most times you open the lid. While it is 'insulated', it likely has the R-value of 3/8 inch foil bubble wrap. It keeps the sun & dirt off but is mediocre for extra insulation.
Pros: fits well, vented areas work, small compartment for wires, reinforced bottom for durability, clear view for control window.
Cons: pricey for what you get, cheap zipper.
Needs: better zipper, more reasonable price, possibly velcro or magnets to attach fabric cover to lid, so it folds up & down with lid each time.
Glad I bought it but not the best value for money.
I requested for a cover soon after i have used the cooler and seapower said that they are working on it and will let me know, sure enough received an email and purchased it with no regrets - fit and finish is fantastic and the cooler runs less saving power when using my bluetti power box. did not expect the performance and quality of the insulated cover. the only regret is that i did not get the larger RV60D
Nice snug fit. Openings line up nicely with handles, power cord port, controls and vents.
