Electric Frig/Freezer

Has anyone added a slide out fridge/freezer to their basement? The more I see these, the more I think I need to dump a few coolers and ice maker and just go to something like this.

Whynter 65 qt. Portable Fridge/Freezer-FM-65G - The Home Depot

My factory outside TV would interfere, but I could go out the other side. Actually I would like a full slide tray. Anyone installed one of those in the basement? Wonder what I would be drilling into.

Brad ~ I'm looking seriously at a MORyde full width slide tray. They make all sizes but the ones that interest me are 20" or 26" wide. Not sure whether I would do a full width 90" or maybe a 48" and only come out 1 side. I've got to re-measure the left side doors in the basement but I think the 26" may JUST make it through the door

We had a small version of that frig (about the size of a large cooler) & it worked off 12 volt or 110 & worked great. Left it with our son as his rv only had the small refrigerator.

I was just looking at the Morryde. I would be nervous about mounting it, as I know what is under there

I was thinking the full length tray, or the cooler one and have it come out on the curb side.

That wood on the floor is 3/4 inch plywood so as long as you use screws no longer than 3/4 inch you'll be fine. I had a few 1/2 screws in mine without an issue.

ah cool, thanks. I assume there are 2" trusses under that before you hit the tank?

Thats good to know Danny. I had a small inexpensive 12V that didn't work well at all, but I think it was different technology. These may actually be refrigerant, although I hadn't heard of that brand before. They are a little cheaper than Dometic.

I wouldn't count on the trusses because I think their 24" on center. I looked under mine and from my perspective it looked like the wood was real close to the tanks.

Dave, have you ever put in one of those trays? Do you know if they require bolts up through the bottom or will they hold with just some screws down into the wood? I imagine they produce a little weight when extended to the limit out one side or the other.
