We finally had a chance to use our trailer since we installed our AM Solar system. We boondocked on the street in front of a friends home when they had a Marti Gras party a couple of weekends ago. We ran the lights for a long time (LEDs) and the gas heater all night with the temp set a 65 degrees, so that created a good drain on the batteries. We discharged ~20% of our battery storage (we have 2 Lifeline 6 volt with 220 amp hours). We were fully charged back to 100% capacity by about 3:00 the next afternoon (~98% by noon).The system worked great. We were in direct sun with no shade except in the early morning. I can't wait to go out for a long weekend boondocking to see how it holds up in the real world. Uwe at Area63 did a great job installing our solar system. I would not hesitate to have them do more work on our AS.
