Beverage Storage

We like to keep a stock of cold water bottles while we travel, this poses a problem as they take up a lot of fridge space. How do you keep beverages cold with out sacrificing much needed space in the fridge?

They are not cold when we buy them, so one or two out of the fridge, add the same back in.

We purchased an Engel Fridge Freezer MT45. We always keep the liquids(Pop, Beer, Wine) in the Engel. Rest stays in the fridge. We us the 12 Volt plug when traveling, it runs off the engine battery. When parked it kicks into 110 V.

The Engel is awesome as we like liquids real cold.

gunnerwoody,
I apologize for the post readers that do not look at member profiles (darn it)
I suspect your 30 ft RV may not have room for basement fridge.
Best wishes.

We keep maybe a dozen bottles of different drinks in the fridge. Anything more than that we store under one of the bench seats that go with the kitchen table.

Our neighbors like to have plenty of cold water with them. On summer trips, he keeps a bunch in an ice chest in a storage bay. They will usually stay cold for a couple of days and are easily accessible when outside.

For water in bottles freeze them at home and toss in a cooler.

The water ice bottles will kep other things cold.

Toss in some ice too.

I'm wondering. How much stuff is in the refrigerator, that you can't fit a few bottles of water in it?

Cases of water and soda in a storage bay. Bring inside to the refrigerator a day or two supply at a time.

Coleman 12V cooler/heater holds our bottled drinks. We keep it in the hallway of the RV when traveling, when parked it's outside under the RV.

FWIW, we bought the Coleman 12V cooler at a yard sale for $20, somewhere in Florida.

We keep a large cooler with ice, full of beverages for long trips. Free's up the fridge for food items and the drinks are ice cold!

We keep inside when we're traveling during the day. Works great.
