RE: solar

Running a residential fridge in an RV while dry camping takes planning.

RE: solar

Henry, a 100 watt solar panel under ideal conditions will produce 5.6 amps per hour...nominal 12 volts. Solar is great but you can’t do much with one 100 watt panel. You need adequate panels, batteries, a controller and large size wire...all based on an energy survey.

RE: solar

Is your fridge 12 volt or 120 volt? How many amps does the fridge use when running? How efficient is your inverter? How many amp hours will your batteries hold? Are you sure the fridge is all you want the batteries to power? Better approach is to do an energy survey to determine your needs...then times 1.5.

RE: Cab over Camper shell?

They were very popular in the 70s. Not so much now. Beaver made 3 or 4 different models.

RE: Group 27 deep cycle battery + 2000W inverter

A group 27 with how many amp hours fully charged? A 12 volt or120 volt fridge? A full size fridge that uses how many amps when running? If a 120 volt fridge, how efficient is the inverter?

RE: Reservations in California

Some California State Parks are open for day use but none are open for camping. Likewise all National Forests in California are closed to camping. Monterey city and county campgrounds are closed for instance. What the future holds is speculation.

RE: CA Hwy 1

Caltrans says not advised for trailers but not prohibited. See the YouTube video. I take Hwy. 20.

RE: Anyone Installed a Bigger TV?

It’s easy! Measure carefully and get the biggest one that will fit. If you dry camp, compare watts however.

Ten years is fabulous. Buy a new one of the same type.

RE: 13'5" clearance

Assumed “fudge factors” have caused a lot of damage to RVs, bridges and truck cargo.

RE: Wall mount electric heater

My 22 foot TT keeps warm with a portable electric heater set at 750 watts....when I’m plugged in...which is rare.

time2roll’s first suggestion is good. I call those a “bus.”
