DH and I have been both interested in solar
for years. I do have a basic lack of comprehension of the subject, and so does he. For instance, neither of us have been able to understand why we couldn't just open a portal doooor and hook an unrolled solar
mat/opened lightweight suitcase to the existing battery
in our LS.
True, I can see some problem with a/c leaking out, the denizens of the insect worlds wanting to come investigate, and keeping the cats in place,(the 2 cabinet doors leading to the cat haven underbed storage of our Lil Snoozy
were removed for our convenience.
If I can understand the particulars about how and why this isn't done, I think it would be a great thing for both of us.
BTW I printed a worksheet from an RV solar
conversion form. It made me a little frustrated. # of incandescent lightbulbs 25 or 50 wattsHalogen bulbs, # of fluorescent & at 15 or 30 watts. #Watts for the following appliances- ac refrigerator
, fans (500 cfm, 750 cfm, 1000 cfm) , stereo, computer, B/W or Color TV at 9, or 13 inches, stereo, [/COLOR="Sienna}water pump[/COLOR]e B receiver, Satellite receiver, forced air furnace
, vent and range hood, [/COLOR Sienna]DC compressor refrigerator[[/COLOR]e, 3 way refrig on 12V
, Blender, B/I vacuum, electric broom, hair dryer, I am going to try to highlight which of those things above we may have. I noticed LED bulbs were conspicuous by their absence and I have always used them even when they were first on the market at $119 apiece.Also have the following-[COLOR="cyan"
Edited to add, we do have water pump,12 volt small truckfridge,
]200 watt and 1000/1500 watt space heater, toaster oven, 2 burner induction cooktop, [/COLOR]Airconditioner, truckfridge builtin 12V fridge/freezer, electric kettle, 1 qt crockpot,7 LED lights
All these are to be multiplied x hours of use daily.
You notice even slides are conspicuouse by their absence? This Conversion business doesn't have any marking closed or out of business but their worksheet definitely needs a revision if still open.
