Pleased to Announce.....

I am super excited to announce that I will be working with Sean and Kristy Michael of the YouTube Channel LongLongHoneymoon to install their SOLAR System. Sean and Kristy have poured their hearts and soaks into helping others learn the basics of RV travel as well as taken many of us “along for the ride” on many of their fabulous trips.
The system will be comprised of:

Victron 12/3000 charger/inverter
Color GX monitor
712 BMV battery monitor
100/50 smart solar controller
400ah of BattleBorn Batteries
400 watts of Renogy Eclipse solar panels
BlueSea switches, fuses and breakers,
And much much more.
I’m like a Kid with a NEW set of LEGO’s
This is going to be FUN!!!

That’s awesome. I was recently watching one of their videos and wondered why they hadn’t jumped on the off grid bandwagon.

Of note, that is nearly the same system I’m installing (sans the 50A dual inverters). Great choices! Here is my wiring diagram.

Cool.. They put stuff to real world testing. Will they/you be sharing the cost numbers also? Hopefully that’s not too nosy.
Thx

Congrats to you, an exciting honor. They could have chosen anyone. I am getting a similar setup, 600 AH of Lifeblue and 800W of solar installed by the Lewster in 2 weeks. Santa thinks we have all been good this year or that we need to be away from it all!

GMFL, that’s some serious gear, thanks for sharing. Is that a 3000 watt inverter / charger combo? Looking forward to seeing the finished install.

Sorry for late reply. I have a spread sheet that will lay out total cost as anyone could purchase through various suppliers.
I will do my best to break down the cost for every crimp, bolt and screw.
HINT......it’s a big system!

Here is a rough diagram that shows the basic concept of their install. Nothing in stone as I will not fully know what we got until we dive in.
I have been in the trailer with the purpose of getting an idea on the install but.... until it’s install time no final decisions have been made.

Sean and Kristy are my favorite Airstreamers- cant wait to see how they like solar compared to their generator.

Why arent they Ambassadors?
