Saving power with led battery lights

 To help save battery power we have installed 4 battery operated led lights now which we use on a daily basis.

One in the bathroom so we dont accidentally turn on the light above the sink in the bedroom by mistake. 

One above the bathroom sink.
One in the closet to help pick out your clothes in the dark.
And one above the bed so you don't have to get in bed in the dark or get out of bed to turn the light off.

End of camping season coming soon

 This is a sad time of year for me camping season is coming to a close, we will leave today for one of our last trips and winterize our trailer after that. We could get a over nighter or two after that as long as we don't put water in the system, that way freeze ups are not a problem, but it's almost over. I will have more posts after this trip is done.

Nifty storage idea

My wife wanted more room behind the stove for storage space so she removed the stoves top cover and used this magazine holder for storing boxes of stuff so it was ready to use.

Added a third solar panel

 On our last trip out I added a third solar panel to our set up, our electric usage had almost doubled since I had added the Igloo cooler and we were using our Fantasic breeze fan a lot because of the heat. I had already added the Furrion solar panel plug in before and the Renogy Adventurer 20 amp solar charger before so the job was mostly done already.

I did not have all of the needed wiring on the trip so I used a 20 ft piece of extension cord for the wiring.

And I added the plug in for connecting to the Furrion Solar panel plug.

I plugged in the third panel and we got 14.4 amps charging from all three panels which went along way to replenishing the 40 to almost 60 amps we were using everyday and night.

Camping around squirrels

 On our last trip we had a lot of squirrels around, we found these squirrel cities-stash places.

And I made this video

We also got a little squirrel damage to our outdoor carpet.
