Nice pics PH! Glad you had a good thanksgiving. Family came over... my job is to eat all the left overs and there are a lot of them!
Thanks for posting. 4 - 12volt in the hand is better than 4 6 volters in the bush.
Thank goodness the wife loves it, nice job PH! 100 gallons in a day and a half! Your job if you choose to accept it (ha) is to take a water management class
If battery storage works like water usage, you will have to add more roof to handle the panels
. I thought 200W would do it for me, but maybe 300W.
Inverters get pricey, but I would figure out how to run the 'things' that can tolerate it on square wave and the picky things on true or pure sine wave. First you have to get a handle on how much DC you are going to need. Get a good inverter or inverters when you do. I would like at least 2000W inverter. I'm not the solar expert, but my thoughts would be to have a true sine wave and a square wave inverter, if that is feasible.
I have added reflectix under the floor under the garage. I could tell a slight difference, but no hard data to prove anything. It still will need 2 to 3 times more heating BTUs. If you consistently camp at low 40s, I would add a Wave8 in the garage and another one in the "kitchen".
Sound insulation around the genny. Suggest using the high dollar HushMat; maybe look into sitting on thicker/betterr rubber mounts and muffulate the heck out of it.
We must have different sinks, mine is a 40 / 60 split with two bowls.
I would like another tele, as well.
