I have solar panels, A wind genny, solar controllers & a 5K inverter on the house. I'll make something Mobile to take on the road, buy two more batteries and add a switch so T.V. does'nt connect to all 3 battery's . Before I broke my neck I was a good Mechanic, still have a brain but work very slowly, just did'nt know how trailers were set up.. Thanks Again RICK

Rick -

Your neck injury sound serious - hope all is well. After being rear ended on the freeway I can relate to the brain working slowly. I can only image what a serious accident/injury would be like.

I'm going to be at the RV show in Pomona too so maybe our paths will cross. I'll be the lady looking at trailers but without any desire to get a different unit.


Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Good idea. I've thought about this and decided to copy Arlee's post to our Forest River FAQ section.

excellent writeup with only one objection, it's a Converter, not an Inverter.

only high end RV's have factory inverters installed but all RV's have converters.

many RV owners install their own inverters but it takes at least two batteries to support the smallest power draws, such as a LCD tv or dvd player.
