Trailer: Boler 13 ft 1976
Posts: 1
I have a 1976 13 foot boler and want to install a 12V deep cycle batter to run the inside lights and an inverter for my computer.

I do not want to connect it to the car battery. I eventuall will want solar panels to charge it. I will charge it with a battery charger for now.

Can anyone help me?

thanks

Firstly, why not connect to the vehicle battery? You get the biggest bang for your charging dollar. Then get a medium power automatic battery charger (multi stage)for charge maintenance, where power is available. Solar units, from what I've seen, are very expensive, for what you get out of them, not very pretty, and delicate. Is your computer a laptop? If so, can you not get a DC apapter to correct the voltage and run it direct off your trailer battery? Inverters, unless you buy a really good one, tend to cause problems with computers, because their output is not 'clean' sinewave.
