Magnum’s additional install and operating instructions:

The user manual supplied with the new DC-50 does cover the basics but does not give great detail when it comes to installing and operating.

For installation we would suggest a direct feed to a leisure battery and not to go via any control unit. The supply cable should be 1mm cross section for every meter of run. So for example a 3m run you would require 6mm cross section cable. We would also suggest a 15amp inline fuse and an isolation switch.


There is no external flus fitting frame available for these fridges, they are designed that you screw through your housing into the side of the fridge through the metal bodywork. Please ensure you do not go more than 10mm into the body of the fridge.
