I have not even come close to using 25% of the battery bank yet as my trailer is pretty efficient, even after several days boon docking. Next I'm adding LED flat panel lights which I haven't seen anyone else use on here yet so that will help too. On the Sovereign
(33') I'm doing next I'll install a larger variant much like you are discussing no question. As an added bonus the Isotherm is a beautiful piece of kit unlike the RV appliances I checked out.
I am close to getting a 4.2 cu foot Truckfridge
. I currently have only 1 12V
battery (˜100 AH) and 200W of solar panels on the roof. I'd rather not add a bunch more of either and typically camp in the southwest with good sun. All my lights are LED and I don't have an inverter since we don't use any 110V appliances while camping. Do you think I'd be all right for boondocking or should I go for the dual golf cart battery and/or more solar power?
