King Quest Directv receiver.

Used a A B switch to switch between tripod dish or rooftop tracking Quest.

Works great.

Champion 2000 watt inverter generator. Enough to charge the battery for now, well probably added a second one and parallel kit later.

the manufacturer is http://en.calb.cn/ (note: their US office is in L.A. area, but the website calibpower.com does not work, the phone no. works. weird). there are quite a number of sellers here around the country. their li cells are very popular in ev community.
you can find its spec here EVTV Motor Verks Store: CALB CA100FI 100Ah LiFePo4 Cell, Lithium Battery Cells, ca100fi

funny thing - spec says 3.2v each cell, but i measured all of them were 3.35v when i got them, even better.

I thought what if that was a refrigerator. I know it is clumsy, but I definitely use mine regularly now. Even if I am only staying overnight.
I have two surge guards, one built in and one external with a locking clasp. I use them everywhere, even at my home with a correctly cried 50 amps. You just never know when mayhem will strike but I want to be protected.

Cut the power cord to the RV and installed new ends on the cord so I can keep the surge protector locked in the RV. Are surge protectors necessary? I say yes after losing an air conditioner, lucky it could be repaired but endured a week of uncomfortable living.

Wow--that was a big investment! Glad you found a deal and a good alignment guy.. Both are difficult to find!

Bought a new plug, air and fuel filters for the generator in my 31C, to go along with the new carburetor (which got it running) that went on it a week or so ago.
