Wind turbine?

Solar is common, has anyone thought about a wind turbine?

A small turbine can put out close to 600 watts.
That would be 6 solar panels.

.... Or am I way out in left field?

Generally sounds good. I think, however, you can count on Sun more than wind, or enough wind to generate power. Post anything you find on this.

The breeze is better in left field so.....

Seriously though I think the biggest issue would be location. I know for us one of the places we stay at the beach it would work wonders but not atone of th h ed places in the mountains. Interesting thought though for boondockers for sure!

Location would have to be a huge consideration for wind power to be effective.
Here is a nice marine type unit that would be ideal for RV use if parked in the right spot.

I don't have one myself, but I have seen the odd one mounted to a mast mounted to the rear ladder on some rigs while walking though various campgrounds. So there are people that use them.
