To give you an idea of the size of mine. It's only an 18quart. Perfect for one person. As you can see from the soy sauce bottle (whoda thought it won't freeze lol) it's not large at all.. one of the smallest that Domestic makes. It is fairly deep on the left side though. And that divider will also lay flat separating​ the deeper compartment for ???

Why do you put your soy sauce in the freezer?

Lol, it doesn't freeze and the bottle has been opened.. if one reads the label, it should be refrigerated after opening.

When I was still looking for a fridge I found a decent one at Home depot for 4ish I think and it had pretty good reviews (not as good as truckfridge.com) but not as expensive either... don't even bother with the truck stop thermoelectric coolers.. save your money for a fridge.

Soy sauce doesn't freeze easily because of its high sodium content. Same reason road crews salt or brine (salt water) roads. It lowers the freezing point.

I've used the the thermoelectric cooler for almost 2 years. It works good for me because I keep the truck pretty cold. The only problem I've had was I burned out a fan that I replaced with a computer fan and it works even better now lol. If I had an inverter I would probably get a fridge but this works for me.

Susan D, could you please post the model of Dometic you have. I've been through every kind of cooler and fed up.

Also, if you shut down for a 34, do you empty it? I'm now running regional and get home every week, but usually just for a day, sometimes the weekend.

Thanks!

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

I only empty it when I'm home as I cut the power to my truck during that time. It's so quiet you don't hear it running, uses very little power, and can be used as either a freezer or a refrigerator. I love it. Domestic is the go-to brand for Prevost RVs/Busses, marine use, and other high end rvs.

It keeps all my goodies frozen rock solid, regardless of the temperature inside my truck. I typically keep shrimp, ,chicken breasts, fish filets, mini meatloaves, frozen veggies. tonight, I made orange chicken, with snow peas, mushrooms, served with rice. On Easter I cooked a tiny pork tenderloin with baby Yukon gold potatoes and carrots. For most cooking I use an Aroma steamer/slow cooker/pressure cooker and a tackle box sized portable propane grill when the weather allows it's use.Domestic Personal Size Freezer

Susans picture appears to be the Dometic CF18. I used the same one when I was driving OTR. I used mine as a refrigerator as opposed to a freezer. I paid around $350.00 on Amazon. Definitely worth the investment. Btw... it is Dometic, not Domestic.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
