Jason,

Looks like it will be functional for the Wilds this weekend.
A few details to finish sorting, but I plan to fill the Keg Tonight and have it ready for "primitive camping"
Come on up and bring a big mug, it looks like free beer Friday.

The 2 things I would recommend to keep things cool with lowest battery use is #1: Chill the beer off a/c power at home first--even dropping a keg several degrees will take quite a bit of energy. #2: Insulate around the refrigerator. I would forgo the beer sleeve--no real need for this if you have a jacket on the frige and this will allow cold penetration into the keg as opposed to cold penetration out of the frige. I made a version before back in the day...

Thanx Davis. I plan to pre chill the keg on ac power. I will give it a go without the glove. I did add an inch of high efficiency great reflective insulation to the top and sides of the aluminum outer case.

I also installed 10" pneumatic casters so I can roll it around the camp site.

And modified the CO2 regulator and line top use a standard air fitting so I can use the 5# tank to air up when the beer is gone.

I think you have raised the stakes over and above anyone with an ARB or Engel!
Truly worthy project!

Kraig, the kegerator worked incredible. Flowed cold craft beer all weekend. Already looking forward to the next event we can use this, hopefully without all the rain and mud....
