Exactly! Just continuity.

This specific model is DC only, but there are 120V variations.

I decided to do it myself after seing that exact same add!

From what I’ve read, it’s better not to play with compressor speed for a few reasons (wear, duty cycle, power draw)
These compressors are really widespread, so You have to imagine that the manufacturer tweeks the speed just right with the resistor, for each fridge size application.

I saw a thread regarding showers today, so I thought I could share what I have come up with

So my shower system is quite simple, it's a waterproof vinyl textile (heavy weight) "tub" that measures 24" wide x 36" long x 24" high (makes it quite comfortable to sit down or kneel in the tub).

All along the upper edge, there is a sewn loop that allows to insert a 3/4" PVC pipe that makes up the frame of the tub. The corners are 3-way corner fittings and then 4 vertical pipes to hold it up. Nothing is glued on the pipes, it's just a dry fit to allow break-down.

I just heat up some water on the stove, and mix with cold water in the Helio Nemo shower. Pump it up and just for it. I can usally shower with 1 Gallon of water. This is then easily dumped outside, or scooped up with a bowl and dumped in my sink when I'm in the city.

I just saw a picture on another thread where they make a drain that goes through the kick plate of the sliding door step. I think I'll make something like this and just add a "through-hull" fitting in the bottom of my tub and it will make draining easier.

When I'm finished, this thing rolls-up with the pipes and all, to an 8" diameter roll x 36".
I would do the same thing again if I had to.

Very nice, Luc! Can I ask if you made or bought this "tub"?

I had a local shop fabricate it for me. I just brought him the PVC pipe frame. Seams are sewn and glued. It's a supplier that makes medical lifting apparatus, and awnings and stuff like that.
