Boondocker BD-1275-C battery charger

Well the Boondocker BD-1275-C 75 amp battery charger I installed for our batteries worked great, after 2 days and nights I fired up the generator and plugged the Boondocker into it and according to the Trimetric monitor I installed it jumped right to 57+ amps,  which is way battery then the 30 amp car battery charger that I was using and way better then the stock converter would do. It cut way down on the charging time.

Rubber mat for trailer blocking

We picked up a 3/4" thick rubber stall mat from a local western ranch and I cut 2 strips 8"x48" and we used them to help level the trailer on our last trip and they really made it easy to drive up on the 2x6 blocks.

Landing gear & stabilizer pads

I picked up these pads from Walmart and tried them for the landing gear one was bending under the pressure so I will only use them for the stabilizers now , they are just to thin.

August camping trip in the Bighorn Mtns in Wyoming

Well we are back from our second trip of the season, we went to the Bighorn Mtns for the cool weather we camped on rd 124 off of hwy 14a at 9138 ft elev,  it was in the 70's in the day and high 40's-mid 50's at night. We had a few nights of rain but the spot I chose is covered in decomposed granite so no mud issues. Our battery system did great we used a average of 7% of our battery capacity a day so we had no problems staying above the 80% mark on our batteries and we only used what was left in our 3 gal tank on our generator from the last trip I didn't add any fuel for for the 4 days we were there. The Bighorns were full of people as usual. There were only 3 other campers on this road and we never saw 2 of them, we did have a overnighter camp near us 1 night.

Tri-Metric TM2030 RV Battery Monitor

I installed a Tri-Metric TM 2030-RV battery monitor to help keep track of the
battery bank, I still have more settings to get it set up right but with just the basics
I know battery volts, amps being used & amps charging to the batteries.

 The lights look like they are all on but that was just the flash.

 Much better then the stock monitors low, full, good & charging lights.
