I'm renovating a 67 globetrotter 20'. I plan on using AC in extreme cases but usually just run lights at night. I do want to boondock quite a bit on weekends and will occasionally travel to events like Burning Man.
I've read quite a bit and am needing some opinions from vets here.
I bought Progressive Dynamics PD 4045 for conversion. Plan on getting 1000 watt inverter along with 2 6 volt batteries and 2000 watt Honda generator. I would rather not lug 2 generators around...
My plan for plumbing is currently use my black tank that I think is 19 gallons along with adding 2 grey with 32 gallon total.
I read somewhere that if I run my 2000 watt generator with power boost from 1000 watt inverter/ 2 6 volt batteries, I can run a 15000 watt AC unit on the occasion I'm out in the desert and need AC, true? Do I need that 2nd 2000 watt generator for AC?
I read on this blog that these two are doing 60 gallons fresh, 120 gallons grey and black for a week without having to dump.. just add fresh a few times from jugs. Boondocking Tips and Tricks for Newbie RVers
So am I on the right track here? I might have to run lights, furnace fan at night and such but that should not be a problem with generator as backup. It's that I want to rarely use AC.
Do I have enough Grey at 32 gallons since it's just me? I have long hair, but I have read up on dry shampoo and also have camped a lot. I'm no sissy girl, can do a good army bath. I'll mostly camp up the north shore of Duluth MN on weekends but it's the rare weekly trips I want to prepare for. Burning Man here I come fall 16!
BTW, I am right on the cusp of doing all this. Have the space rented, tools bought, just need to get my tanks ordered once I take that back end off of her.. Tanks will go just behind the axle as so many have done.. I have a welder next door to my facility to spot weld and can re-enforce where needed. You are so helpful. There is no WAY I would have done this without all your help!
