Very nice #13
You won't need that at Crystal cove where we met but, Dohney state Beach or some of the other dry camp beaches!

Hi mefly2,

3 x 100 watt panels, BlueSky MPPT controller, and a BlueSky remote control/battery monitor. I also had the battery box made deeper by 2" for future 6V batteries, but for now still running the 2 GR24's which are fairly new.

A little hard to tell by the before and after pictures but you you can see the weld.

Hi,

Funny you mention CC...heading there this weekend...have you been there lately? We have not been to Doheny, but head up to Idyllwild fairly often for dry camping. Nice to finally have my batteries at 100% without dragging my generator to the storage yard before a trip.

That is a very nice looking solar installation. Please keep us posted on the performance as you utilize the system.

AM Solar recently installed 3 panels (325watts), Blue Sky components and 2 6V batteries on our 2014 23D. Lewster rounded it out with a Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power 4645V Multi-Mode Converter/Charger upgrade of the OEM single-mode unit.

We just did 9 days of dry camping, half sunny, half cloudy. We followed that up with a week of shore power.The system never missed a beat.
