Thanks for all the replies.
We just came off a cruising sailboat where we used solar
and 12 volts to live by.
I am really more concerned with putting in battery and rewiring since this thing had no pre-existing power source other than the tugs battery or plug in to campsite power. We need to figure out how to seperate the systems so outside trailer lights
run on plug to car and interior lights, etc run off new house battery we will be installing
Once we get all that going we want to add a solar panel. We had three Siemens 75's on the boat but don't plan to use refrigeration in the tiny trailer so we think we' ll be good with one good deep cycle and a properly sized panel.
components on the Compact II we got are pretty minimal 2 120V lights and a couple of outlets and 3 12 V lights and a tiny water pump. No heater AC or fridge
. We don't plan to add TV or stereo. Maybe a boom box. Laptop and cellphone recharging may be our big draws.
We are really looking forward to getting out on our first camp outs and see how it goes. We just love that the trailer is so light
. That and the large bed were the real selling points for us
Hope to meet you " out there" soon!
