just a side note...the 12volt freezer that I have is an Engel freezer. It plugs into a 12volt cigarette plug and keeps things frozen rock hard. I have the one thats the same size as your typical 12volt 40qt cooler. I think I've had that for about 3 years now running 24/7 and it still runs perfectly and with lower power draw than the 12volt coolers. Its very expensive at almost $900 but if it saves you only $5 a day(I probably save close to $10-15 a day) over meals eaten at restaurants then it will pay for itself in 6 months. You wont find them at the truck stops or stores so you have to order online.

I use two lunchbox stoves during dinner (one for the meat and one for the vegetables). Over the years I've tried all three brands, RoadPro, Burton and Tracker. RoadPro is absolutely worthless, everything they make is crap. I wouldnt even buy a pencil from that brand if they made them. Every 12volt RoadPro appliance I have bought lasts a couple of weeks. Burton is much better and supposedly the cream of the crop but I find that Tracker works better than Burton. Its gotten much harder to find Tracker 12volt stoves nowadays since Pilot took over FlyingJ but I recently saw them at the Petro in Joplin. My Tracker stove has been working for probably 2 years with almost daily use(minus hometime of course).

:lol: Should I take that to mean you don't like that brand?!?!

I love my Burton but the handle is broken and I'll keep a lookout for the Tracker. Good review. Thanks!

I'm with ya, dude! Thanks for the tip. Hate to waste line 5 time on lukewarm beer.
