John, I like what you did. Is it a complicated task? I am going to look into that solution. I think it would be just what I am looking for! Just not too handy with electrical
wiring is all. Obviously, with my advanced grasp on all things electrical
, I might end up electrocuting myself or worse, messing up the whole electrical
system on the trailer.
Bob, I am confused, hence the confusion. Well, as I said, I do have one of those TV converters that I do use to charge my IPAD and IPHONE...but at least with our TV, it only works while the motor is on as in driving. SO, my problem is: I don't want to run my truck just to charge my devices when we are boon docking in the middle of nowhere. SO, if you don't use your TV to go anywhere for days on end how do you charge your devices? Do people just run their TV's to charge their devices? Some poster said one of their vehicles doesn't need to be running to charge theirs but ours does.
I do appreciate all the ideas coming my way. I am trying to get a handle on all things DC vs AC120, solar vs generator
, batteries, shore power, etc. etc.....sometimes, I think I will figure lots more once I am out there and doing it....and perhaps meeting some face to face campers along the way as well. But it helps to have some preliminary concepts down....
Why this is so hard for me to grasp, is that first, I always found electrical stuff confusing, and secondly, I am not looking at it. I need to be able to see stuff and right now, the escape
pod is up here in the COLD FROZEN north, under wraps, so until she gets herself to Texas next week, I won't be able to really sit down and figure things out by looking/touching, etc..which is how my brain works.
So in the meantime, asking questions, reading posts, going to the links provided, etc....
