Default Coolers ... ?

What are you guys using for a cooler to keep your food in ?

I have a Coleman with the little 12v heat exchanger in it....it was perfect for

about 45 days and now its useless...it hardly even cools now.

What to do ?... really like carrying my own food while OTR

If I melt dry ice, can I swim without getting wet?

Zip it is probably the fan. They carry replacements at Wally Mart if it is not under warranty. Very easy to replace. 5 minutes tops. You'll have your beer ice cold again in no time. Oooooopsss, sorry Zip, I mean your Pepsi.
I drifted for a second and thought that I was conversing with golfhobo. :twisted:

I also use the Coleman. Someone told me it seems to have a longer life if you stand it on end w/the fan at the top...

7 months and it still cools great!
