Traveling around Alaska in an RV rental is one of the best ways to spend your summer months. One of the perks of traveling in an RV is that you don’t have to forego amenities, including a refrigerator. However, keeping your RV fridge cold while you travel from campground to campground can be a little challenging. As a trusted rental center, A&M RV Center knows how to keep your perishables cold, even when you’re not powering your unit. Here are several tips we’d like to pass along to you.

3 Tips to Keep Your RV Fridge Cold

1. Use Ice Packs and Cubes

Using your propane tank or generator while you’re driving around in your RV might not be efficient. That’s why we suggest your stop for ice, or use ice packs, in your fridge and freezer to keep things cold. This is an inexpensive way to keep drinks, perishables, and leftovers cold for a short period of time between stops. You can even use the ice cubes later when you need some for your refreshments.

2. Keep the Door Closed

This one might be harder when you’re traveling with children, but one of the surest ways to keep things cold in your RV fridge while you’re on the road is to keep the door closed at all times. If you have children, make sure they get what they need or want from the icebox before you start driving. You might also consider keeping a small cooler accessible for snacks and drinks while you travel. 

3. Use the Lowest Settings

If you plan on hitting the open road the next day, make sure you set your RV fridge to its lowest setting the night before. This will ensure that your food stays colder longer, once you turn off the power source and hit the road. The insulation of the unit will trap the bitter cold inside the fridge, maintaining the proper temperature to prevent foods from spoiling.
