Fresh design with soft-touch controls and a digital display – these are the hallmarks of the Dometic TropiCool series. What’s more, the popular high-tech coolers feature a lot of inner values: intelligent
power-save circuit, individually adjustable temperature, cooling performance up to 30 °C below the ambient temperature. If desired, the convenient units can also take care of keeping food
warm: activating the heating function supplies temperatures of up to +65 °C.

Dometic Tropicool TCX 35 is a thermoelectric cooler from the TCX range. Suitable for use on 12/24 volts DC and 230 volts AC. Volume: approximately 35 litres.

What is the difference between the cooling technologies?


Details of distinguishing features:

  • Gas-powered cooling independent of electricity
  • Three way cooling – Gas, 12 volts DC or 230 volts AC
  • Silent operation
  • Cooling performance depending on the ambient temperature

The Technical Bit

A concentrated ammonia solution is heated in a boiler and expelled as vapour. The pressurised ammonia gas is then liquefied in a condenser. Supplied with hydrogen, it evaporates and in the process extracts heat from the storage container. The ammonia gas then enters the absorber where it is reabsorbed in a weak solution of ammonia. Finally, the saturated solution flows back to the boiler where the whole cycle starts again.


Details of distinguishing features:

  • 12 / 24 / 230 Volt
  • Independent of inclination
  • Lightweight and low-cost
  • Cooling performance depending on the ambient temperature

The Technical Bit

The thermoelectric principle was discovered by J. C. A. Peltier, which is why the temperature generating parts of thermoelectric systems are referred to as Peltier elements. Thermoelectrics are based on the fact that cold or heat energy (depending on the polarity) is generated when a DC current is conducted between different types of metal. The heating or cooling capacity is further enhanced by heat exchangers and air fans. Ideal for low and medium cooling volumes.


Details of distinguishing features:

  • Excellent cooling performance even at extreme ambient temperatures
  • Refrigeration and deep-freezing
  • 12 / 24 / 100 – 240 volts
  • Low power consumption – suitable for solar operation
  • Battery protection
  • Quiet operation with little vibration
  • Independent of inclination

The Technical Bit

Compressor units operate using a refrigerant that changes from liquid to gaseous state in the evaporator. The evaporation extracts heat from the interior of the cooling unit – the temperature drops. The compressor draws in the refrigerant, compresses it and passes it on to the condenser. Here, the absorbed heat is released to the atmosphere. The refrigerant liquefies again and flows to the evaporator, where the cycle begins again.

My new Tropicool

by George Dixon (22 Jul 2016)
5 star review(5/5)
Recently arrived back from my trip to West Wales in my Motorhome and the weather was really hot. Just wanted to leave a review as my new TCX35 performed really well and would recommend it.
