    1+K led spotlights, lightbar etc

    Re direction of Roo's ... often lights will "startle" them or attract their gaze ... and often it's their own shadow that starts to shift behind them as you approach that causes them to jump *away* from their shadow ... and thus toward the light source. But this is purely conjecture, wildlife...

    Brass Monkey Fridges

    Dometic (Waeco) say 30degrees is OK ... so when used in a boat up on the plane, or a 4wd on a hill (oops I think we've all been past 30 degrees too hah ha) Not that i really care or am advocating one way or another! but 5 degrees is not much angle at all for anything mobile.

    Temperature of portable fridge

    See quick video attached. press and hold up and down temp buttons and A mode will appear. Then use set to select which bin. So a-0 means no offset. A-2 will instruct the fridge that you want to subtract 2degrees from what it thinks is the temp (make warmer)A2 means you want to add 2 degrees...

    Temperature of portable fridge

That said every fridge is different even within the same models on my cfx75dzw you can calibrate the bins against your own themroterr to be sure. I found...

    How thirsty is your fridge.

    Yeh ordinarily I’d have the side windows open and be actively using for camping or pulled up athome in shade but when at work it’s in a sunny car park in inner suburbs so it’s locked up tight.
