It transfers power at 60hz cycles, which will cause radio & headlight interference. You need the special winding of the ARB cord for the 120hz wavelength.

Will the Slee upgraded headlight harness fix this issue?

Probably going to need one of these. A bargain at $519.98. Available at Best Buy. (This is for real).

On a related topic, does anyone else's arb fridge have a pretty distinctive clunk inside the compressor when driving over bumps or picking it up and moving it around? (Seriously).

When I asked arb and sent them a video they said it was normal but its fairly annoying.

To stay on topic, it makes the noise even if plugged in with a proper 110v arb fridge cord

John has the 60quart and it clunks. ARB said that is the swing compressor and something about it using the vehicle motion to power the fridge (not joking). I have the 42quart and mine doesn't clunk like his does.

What percentage of moly do I need for refrigerator grease?

Interesting! I have the 50. I wonder if the bigger ones have a different compressor? I wonder if the fridge will break or if I'll go crazy first

All of the ARB fridges have the same style Danfoss compressor, only the older ARB (rebadged Engel models) had the Sawafuji swing motor. Fwiw.
