> What makes you think it's near the end of its functional life?
Is there something wrong with it or are you speculating based solely on its age?
Mine is the original from 1989 and works fine. The ONLY reason I would consider replacing while it still works is that I spend 2-4 day weekends on the hook so power management is always top of mind and the new units are more efficient. Other than that, I'll hang on to the original until it caughs up its last ice cube! I also find the electronics on newer fridges and air conditioners fail much too easily. All it takes is poor line voltage for one reason or another and failure is imminent.

The Detroit Boat Show is next month so I will start looking at replacement units then.
