I don't do that sort of camping anymore, but if I did and was serious about it, I'd lean more toward Sidecarflips' way of doing it, especially with how effective and available solar charging/inverters are, and the charging equipment is affordable now. Good luck and remember that Dry Ice isn't expensive!
    The Dometic Cool box has a Danfoss compressor. Unlike a conventional fridge, the Danfoss runs on what is called a duty cycle and they are extremely efficient too. My Cool Box pulls 45 watts cooling down do whatever I set it is (all digital) and then drops off 20 20 watts and only runs when it need to maintain the interior temperature 200 watts of solar and 2 flooded cell batteries and you are good do go.

    .... and Yeti's are made in China as well. Made there imported here and branded Yeti. I wouldn't have one either. If I didn't have the Cool Box, I'd have a Coleman.

    Maybe the OP don't have a Yeti????
