wow, looking back on this old thread made me realize how long I have had the ARB Fridge. I am still running the exact same setup though with some service along the way.
Fridge is still running like a champ. One of the hinges broke, ARB sent me two at no cost, no questions asked.
Replacing the clogged lines fixed the compressor. working like a champ again.
So, tip for compressor with tank....let out all the air or it turns into moisture and rust out the lines.
don’t know if this was in the manual or not, since I tend to glance over those most of the time.....
new braided lines on the way along with a prevention tip from ARB.
In order to prevent this, make sure all of the air is released from the system when you're done using it.
Keep in mind I have the portable version so I have the little alum tank with braided lines. it is the braided lines that...
Update: finally got around to checking hoses.
Hose from compressor to tank - completely clogged
Hose from tank to quick connect - 75% clogged
I don’t know what the clog material is, but ARB knew to have me look for it.
Requested new hoses from ARB, will update again once put back together.
Keep in mind I have been running this setup for years now with single battery, stock cables.
I did get some additional feedback from ARB “the hose from the tank to the compressor is likely clogged” so I am going to check this next.
This may be the culprit as the pressure switch had some...
looking for forum experience/input since ARB has not been very helpful. they sent me a pressure switch, but there has been no further support or technical assistance. “edit”, ARB has continued to assist just took some time.
I have had this unit in my vehicle for a few years now using to air...
a great tent and an excellent price. I miss mine.
Running a turtle back now, but I really had my oztent set up dialed in. It had many years of hard use and had been in all kinds of weather. I never had to worry about it. I passed it on to a firefighter and his son for more years of use and...
I’ve never noticed any problems. I usually keep it between 30-34. I use the arb plug and connector directly to a solar powered battery. Has worked very well for about three years now. Just turn it on when I need it.
However, I have never tried using it during our hot summer months in Phoenix...
I tried them on my roof rack a few years back. It was a warm day, around 80 degrees and they swelled up horribly. So much so that I had a heck of a time even getting them off to vent them.
Never carried them again.
I do however use the water version all the time.
for fuel I just use...
Picked up a cheap Cricket 22 Rifle to convert it to a packing rifle with the Ruta Locura PRK kit. I have had this for a few years now and serves its role well.
Skeletonized Stock PRK Specifications:
-19oz total weight for converted rifle with kit
-32 Inch over all length when assembled
Also came from an Xterra pro 4x. Been watching the ZR2 for a couple of years now and picked the diesel up in May.
Also adding a Turtleback trailer this year so most of my gear is moving to the trailer for use between vehicles.
Other than the dealer REV cover and tool box, I am keeping the...
