Update: April, 27, 2017. I checked the batteries after having 5 days of cloud coverage and very little sunshine. The system was in float charge at 13.2 volts and producing 0.8 amps under cloud coverage. The batteries were at 12.5 volts on the day of install two weeks ago. I still have not had the opportunity to check amperage under direct sunshine. So far, I am pleased with the results.

little Improvements

been away for a period of time but still working on many things to do. RV stays inside in the winter in a heated building which allows me to do many items and stay warm.

Rear stone guard is going on this weekend..

We have the driver and passenger window tinted with Home tint and last time out I was amazed at the reduction of sun and heat...this is more of a heat reduction tint than a dark tint.

Added a mini frig in the side compartment....now nice and filled and keeps me out of the inside..

Added battery operated lights in all the compartments with out lighting...makes a big difference at night..

Thanks
I see some folks have done something with a steering stabilizer, however, my 2015 Legacy handles great without it, been on many mountain roads and some wicked wind. I'm very happy with the chassis as it is. Just my two cents.

I found a nice little organizer on Amazon. Put one on the wall near dinette for TV remotes and the other on the wall near driver's seat to put all my "stuff" when traveling.

We are leaving for a bluegrass festival in Southern Ca in a few minutes, our solar system will be working hard over the next week or so.
