On a brighter note we had some upgrades done on our Tiny house in preparation for our upcoming spring and summer adventures.
We replaced our 1000 watt smart inverter/charger with a Victron 2000 watt smart inverter/charger and rewired the rig so that all outlets inside and outside are now inverted to battery power. We also had to replaced our solar monitor since the original monitor didn’t have a setting for lithium batteries.
We can now run the microwave off the house batteries and charge our Ebikes with the house batteries, and MaryAnn can use her coffeemaker without being plugged into AC shore-power as well. This is huge for us since I had to ban the high voltage coffeemaker from use whenever we were not plugged into AC shore-power at an RV parking lot.
We have 400 watts of solar on the roof and a diesel generator underneath our rig. Now we are ready for serious wilderness camping completely unplugged from the world!
In April we are leading a group of 24 people on a 12 day tour of southern Arizona and in May we start a 2-3 month tour of Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana. Everyone is invited to come along with us on this epic adventure! See you on the Barber Road…
