How do we add our 'yes' to the RSVP page?

Also, we are planning on leaving Monday. Will it be difficult to get out before the rally ends?

Please PM me your email address and I'll send you the sign up sheet - you may come and go as you like, so leaving early is not a problem - other than we will miss you.

This is really Jim asking, How long will my battery last with limited light and pump usage, How long can we except the battery to last. It's Rv deep cell like I use in my boat. Would a solar panel help. I saw a 12"x 24" solar panel at Harbor Freight for about $20.00. would this help?

How long your battery lasts depends on it's size, state of charge, and how many loads you put on it. If you have the room I would try and install 2 batteries. If you have room for only one, try and get the biggest size possible, a size 27 or size 31. Don't bother with a size 24, unless that's all the room you have. As for a solar panel helping out. Yes, absolutely, but you need at least 100 watts of panel. The one you cited is only good for a trickle charge and is really not worth buying.

For what it's worth....we purchased the Coleman (camping) solar set up from Costco for $199. It has three small-ish panels, provides 55w and comes with everything you need, inverter, stand, etc. We used it for all our energy needs recently at Mesa Verde Nat'l Park. Well, the generator had to be started for the regular coffee pot....good luck and look forward to seeing you at the Fiesta!

Hey, Ken, I was trying (unsuccessfully) to remember when you want the balance-due checks. Was it in July?

to Mello Mike & Silver Pal - thanks so much for the guidance. I'll be on the hunt for solar panels that won't break the bank, and stashing an extra battery in the bed of the truck. Looking forward to meeting fellow Streamers in Albuquerque, but not wishing the summer away!
