Ultimate Rialta Fridge Upgrade
I love my Rialta however hated the efficiency of my Fridge.
It took 8 hours to cool down on AC Power plugged in and would drain a battery before you knew it.
Didn’t want to bother with the propane feature or routine cleaning required of burner.
Researching I found out there was not a new fridge available to fit the area.
I have a high quality portable fridge for my work van that I’ve used for years.
It uses a Danfoss BD35 compressor for cooling. It’s quite efficient.
Never has caused a problem plugged into my start battery even on 95 degree days.
I found a cooling unit easy to modify my existing Rialta fridge using the same technology.
Adler/Barbour CS-NC-15 Super Compact cooling kit . Normal Refrigeration Capacity: 8.8 cubic feet
Easy to install. Just cut a 8 X 12 rectangle in back of old fridge and fasten with 6 screws. You’re done.
The cooling unit is inside of fridge ( about 2 inches deep ) and compressor is outside ( back of fridge).
I cut off all the pipes and old cooling apparatus. The new unit uses the old switches and fuse.
Within 30 miniutes it cools down to fridge temps. Within a hour it gets to freezing.
$700 for unit
