I picked up a 17' bigfoot
last year for a good price. It's in pretty good shape but I have a few things to figure out.
1) The furnace
doesn't seem to be working, just blows cold
, my system is likely going to be ~200-300 Watts and 200-230 Amp Hr with a small inverter to charge devices and run basics like coffee grinder. I am struggling through figure out which components to buy and how to wire it.
Things I have learned (not just through building a trailer, but in life and with bicycles (avid cyclist)).
1) RV places generally provide crap service and sell you garbage.
2) wiring a brake controller is easy if you take some time to learn and you will end up with something better for less money.
3) There is an epic number of options in solar
and deciding what is best for you is challenging.
Hope to learn lots on this forum and contribute what I learn back into the community. I've learned from many years of membership on other forums that people come and go and the ones who have learned the most recently as the most eager to give back. It's a resource that needs to continually cycle information from person to person as the old timers get tired and stop contributing. I know because I am an old timer on the classic bike scene and rarely check in there anymore. Cheers.
