We bought 2 midsized from ALDI's last year. One was a small Yeti look alike.
The other was a slightly larger powered unit. 12vdc or 110v AC. It got mauled by a bear, top was seperated from base by a good 30 feet. Top (where the fan and electronics are) was filled with mud.
So I hosed it out, took it apart, finished cleaning, wiped blades, everything inside is absolutely soaked. So I bagged the small parts taped to outside of cooler, and stashed it in the Jeep to dry for 3 weeks.
Reassembled, and be danged if it did not run, both 12v and 110.
Learned my lesson.
A I knew those hot dogs were going bad Plus there was a pound of bacon in paper. Irresistible to bear.
B under the trailer is not secure enough. Not sure inside the jeep would have been.
C My dog who barks about everything apparently has a deal with bears. Not a whimper.
Prices on both were very reasonable.
Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
