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.

Added a 12 volt plug in to a cabinet in the kitchen

 I added a 12 volt plug in for our fantastic breeze fan and our igloo cooler in the kitchen.


I made this install easier by using a piece of extension cord for the wiring making that easier to install and zip tying it in place.


I then wired it into the battery compartment with a inline fuse.

Another camping trip in the bag

 We just returned from a 3 night trip to Yellowtail Lake outside of Lovell WY, it was hot in the 90's during the day but we made it through without firing up the generator.




We camped here to try a different spot than at the canyon where we would normally go, we wanted to be on the water, it was a little buggy in the evening and the wind howled and rocked us good one night.
