Default Haier Kegerator

I purchased a used Haier Kegerator and a new three tap draft tower for it.

Before I install this draft tower, I want to know if there are any must do mods.

For instance, the tower came with installed 5ft beverage lines. Should go ahead and switch these out for 10ft lines?

Also, the tower is isunlated with styrofoam. What should I do to more effectively insulate it. Do I want to add a fan? Do I want replace the styrofoam with more effective insulation?

Sounds like the same one we got. No mods needed. The tower insulation will be fine. Are you sure you can fit three kegs into the fridge??? What size is it??? We can fit 2 cornies or two 1/6 bbls. The door won't close on anymore. Curious how you are fitting three kegs in!

As for the beverage line.......10 ft is not at all necessary......5 ft should be fine.......unless someone can justify longer???!?!

Nope, I would just replace them with brand new lines so you aren't running with the used ones.

What size? How much did you pay for it?

I'm looking at Haier and Avanti right now.

What size kegerator? I am not sure. It is a basic haier with a stainless door. It holds three cornies.
