Inverters really have nothing to do with the solar system. You could have an inverter in a camper without a solar panel at all. They just convert the 12 volts DC power into 120 volt AC power.

I SAW THE QUOTE, so I know exactly what is included. Is that enough for these inquiring minds? After all, I had no idea this was to become a legal proceeding.

I figured that. Lew is well known and respected in solar RV circles, especially in Oregon, so I expected he heard about it. It just means he is connected, not a co-conspirator.

We are all unindicted co-conspirators.

Thats all we inquiring minds wanted to know. didn't know if it was a guess or what. Now the legal proceeding and law suits can be canceled. and no photon torpedoes (resently installed, instead of solar panels) don't have to be used

plus I love a good conspiracy

Ya know Gene, you're right. Anyway I'm gonna say one thing off topic and then I promise to stop. I would've bet my bottom dollar for years that Pat Buchanan was Deepthroat. I'm done. I am in secret negotiations with Lew for a solar installation this summer. I have the gens but like Bob (or was that Ron Popeil) says "set and forget".

As far as I know - Lewster is the most competent and knowledgable Airstream solar guy I know - if he installs it, it will be great - he's not a hobbist, he is a degreed engineer whos knows how to do it right - yea you could go the Harbour Freight route, but if you are seriously using your Airstream, it will be more hassle than its worth. Solar is not cheap - but it sure is nice. If you are needing 400 watts, you need a serious system. I've seen a set up that Lewster did and it is AMAZING!

As long as it powers the disco ball, that should suffice.

Actually, the solar is CHEAP compared to the price of a good disco ball.
