Eastern Tennessee Egg Student

Hello everyone,

Obligatory shout out to good folk here. In the market for an egg, doing diligence very familiar to you all: new verses used, batteries, solar/wind power, grey water conversion, how much electricity I waste, waste, mattresses, marine heaters, WiFi, what I can live without, tax deductions, etcetera. Heck of a lot of fun.

Welcome the opportunity to chat, learn. Thinking about making a trip to NC and see Chandler's operation. Would like to find a deal, but then again, ya'll know that already too.

Hi Stan, to FiberglassRV. We're glad you're here!

Yep, heard those stories before. But that's okay, it's new to you and we're here to answer questions you may have.

Best of luck on the egg hunt!

Chandler makes a nice caravan. Im very happy with the way it tow's behind my Rav4. The anti-sway bar made the difference when its windy out...I should have grabbed it from Hary when I bought it...better late then never.

Yeah take a ride down and talk to him...think about what options are most important to you. If you boondock, just a suggestion... get batteries larger then the 55amp hour ones. I would love something with twice the capacity because you can go longer before recharging.

Np Stan... yeah forums can really help. Im planning on adding some solar power towards the end of the summer which would help alot to resolve the problem (I have a yamaha generator and when camping out with the furnace running at night I will run it for 2 hours to top the batteries off a bit but would be nice to have the sun do that lol)

If you go with the vented marine heater you wont have that problem since the fan is really only needed for getting the draft going and its lower btu's so goes through less propane as well.

Deryk,

I agree with you, vented marine heat seems the logical path forward, especially trying to consider all options lowering propane dependence and consumption. Fortunate for me, I've spend years on liveaboards.
