New solar panels

We picked up or new solar panels this weekend 5 100 watt Renogy RNG-100D-R-BK panels that each put out up to 6.1 amp they will max out my 30 amp controller under full light. I have to get wiring and mounts yet so will be awhile before install, I did unbox and test each panel to be sure they worked., pub-8605095673859667, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Starting on solar set up.

I have a Trimetric TM-2030RV monitor installed in my trailer now. It gives me currant volts, percent of power still in the battery bank and how many amps the batteries are being charged at.

I have already purchased a Trimetric SC-2030 solar charger to add to the system it will talk to the TM-2030RV via a phone line.
And I just ordered 5 Renogy RNG-100D-R-BK-BC 100 watt monocrystalline solar panels

So now I have a start on my solar system just need to get wiring, a junction box or 2 and mounts, hope to have it all done before winter is over., pub-8605095673859667, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Water lines and winterizing

I blew out the water lines with 40 psi air pressure and added RV anti freeze to the p-traps and black and grey water tanks. I do not add antifreeze to the fresh water tank or the water lines, I don't want even biodegradable antifreeze in the tank or lines I may drink out of and I don't care if they say it is safe. Even biodegradable soap will contaminate the ground if it is dumped in the same place often enough., pub-8605095673859667, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Camping season

Well it looks like the camping season may be over, the pickup went to the shop for a new transmission & clutch after the last trip we had lost 5th gear 60 miles from home and now the snow has come to the high mtns leaving only the lower elevations. I have to put 500 miles and two weeks driving on before I can tow a trailer to let the clutch and transmission settle in., pub-8605095673859667, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0, pub-8605095673859667, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0
