Solar panel and inverter.. so it begins

Adding solar panel setup to the aframe. Just another crazy idea lol. I am also installing an inverter for some boondocking days. Plan to remove microwave and add two outlets in that area and then one for my blender. Thinking of adding an outside one but not sure yet.

I will post some pics as I go. All of the stuff I have laying around the yard. The goal is being cheap. Later on I will install a pure sine inverter but for now ill use modified as I only have this weekend for the project. No one has a pure sine in stock.

So... lets have some fun and beer lol.

So far built a panel to add dual batteries and removed the pathetic battery/batter box.

Im appalled the wiring is not protected better. The wires are already sun fading. Will address that later when I run new wires.

My first idea for the inverter space but didnt like it. Decided to remove the slide out container and install it there. Drilled two holes for the wiring.

Now to sleep. Tomorrow go to home depot for more conduit.

When it gets done, can we all come over to admire the good work and try out that Margaritaville?
