Zip, I went over to the Coleman web-site and although I didn't have your particular model #, all of the replacement fans ran around $23-25. Like I said earlier Wally Mart has them and I have also seen the fans at many truck stops. Petro comes to mind. Good luck. I'm sure your wanting to get it back up to speed.

My Coleman did the same thing but it lasted about 6 months, I sent it back to Coleman and they sent me a new one. You coulld call that number on thier website.


I guess rule #1 whenever you buy a cooler or anything to use in your truck is to keep the recipt and packaging.

Are you guys talking about the gray Coleman cooler that opens like a mini fridge?

Yeah I, too, had a couple of those Coleman 12volt coolers. I eventually got sick of them not keeping drinks and food cold in the summer so I bought a 12v REFRIGERATOR. truckfridge.com One for a Century class costs $550. It is a great investment. Even keeps ice cream frozen.

If I end up buying the truck I'm driving from my company, I'll go the way of a 12v refrigerator as well.

I've got a Coleman too that the fan bearings went out on. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Finally went to BestBuy and got a 80mm computer cooling fan, it was just a little smaller than the original, but it still fit OK with just 2 screws and the cooler will still freeze the moisture that accumulates in there.

I am getting ready to buy a fridge. I have an APU/GEN so I can run 120v. I woul really have a hard time forking over $600 for a 2.5cf fridge when you can get a 5.0 cubic foot and run a dedicated inline invertor for less than $200.

If you can not do the invertor thing then your choices are greatly reduced.

Not a problem Creek. CAD resident DOT/FMCSA/CMV beverage specialist Golfhobo should be able to answer any questions that you may have.

In the meantime, for interim guidance............see below

Good stuff, Gary...keep it coming!

Don't get me wrong, I agree with most of what Hobo says...but I have issues with people who refuse to admit they were wrong about something....opcorn:
