Hi all,

Today my solar system replaced all the energy I used in the last 24 hours.

It ran:

coffee pot (one pot)
boiled an egg
ran twin cooling fans for the fridge chimney (thermostatically controlled)
ran the indicator light that shows the fridge chimney fans are turned on
ran a fantastic fan roof vent for 10 hours on low
cooked a pork chop in a George Foreman Grill
cooked a wiener in the grill
ran an led light for 2 hours
ran the gas valve in the fridge and the interior light when door was opened
recharged and ran my laptop for six hours
recharged and ran my cell phone (using it as a hot spot) for six hours
serviced the trik-l-start circuit for the chassis battery
powered the inverter (1/2 amp) for six hours
powered the idiot light on the charge wizard
powered the display on the hall effect ammeter

I'm well pleased with these results.

Don

I am seriously looking into solar right now. Up until a few weeks ago I was able to keep my coach plugged in so the fridge etc was always on and we could hit the road at the drop of a hat. Not so now. I discovered the the fridge will not run on LP alone. It must have power too. My coach batteries will not last a week as there are too many things that run in the back ground all of the time. All I need is something that will run the fridge, monitor system, a CO2 sniffer and what ever else I can't unplug or shut off. My biggest fear is drilling holes in the roof to mount the solar panels. It is a one piece fibreglass. Is there anything that I need to watch out for?
