Might be too late to order some of the stuff but alot of people make their own http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic.php?f=280&t=33842
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Used one of these for 3 years out there with good results in a Kodiak tent.

If you can't build your own, there are these, but they are pricy.

They will need to plan on having extra water and of course power to run it.

One big help is to use ziplock bags to put your ice in and save your ice melt for stuff like this.
