My battery & charging upgrades
We've always had problems lasting more than a few days and then charging the normal dealer installed Interstate Dual Purpose group 24 battery with the generator became a 2x/day chore until we went home. At home, it's plugged in 24/7 so it's always fully charged when we leave for the next trip.
I've been on a mission to upgrade my electrical system to extend our dry camping time. We camp in the woods a lot so solar wouldn't be the "best" option for us and we have a pair of Champion 2K invertor genny's with parallel kit to use as needed.
With this knowledge, I've changed over to a pair of 6v GC batt's (230AH total), so I've almost tripled my battery capacity. I've replaced the factory generic 55A WFCO charger with a 75A Powermax Boondocker (PM4B-75 MBA) and, almost as important, I replaced all of the crappy crimped on ring connectors that the factory put on with proper tinned battery lugs because 3 of the 4 that I've replaced so far I've been able to pull off the end of the wire with my pliers ... meaning they had a very poor connection for charging!
BTW: all lights are LED, we have no inverter (so no 120VAC things) and we try to be very conscious of the power we use.
What do y'all think?
