Hello from Oregon

Well, hello to all, just getting started with this...Im not very good with blogs etc. Our beautiful '96 Beaver Patriot is oiur new full time home, both retired and looking to discover more of the country.
My biggest deasl now is finding the solar charge controller ...1996 Beaver Patriot Trenton 37ft.

I am a DIYer and do enjoy mods etc that work. So will be active here I hope, you all seem to have much to contribute to the benefit of all us RVers...I look forward to this forum.

Welcome From another traveling Oregonian!
I cant be sure of the layout on your coach Mine is a 03 Marquis and a somewhat different animal but the original controller was installed in the holding tank bay on the back of the cover to the tanks, Passenger side. Not sure that's much help but maybe. My suggestion would be to find it and replace it .. its pretty old tech.
I might also suggest you look at the Beaver Ambassador Club BAC for coach specific info. they are a group in the FMCA. They have a public page to view ( google them )and it costs to be a member and post to Member only sections but its the best $ I've spent and found information on these older coaches very helpful.
Good luck in your travels and adventures!

Welcome, from yet another Oregonian. We're all over the place, it seems!

Happy and safe travels!

Don't forget to see Oregon as you travel.

We have a lot to see close by before we head out to other parts of the NW, followed by regional travel, then onto nationwide travel.

Well done! Another Patriot owner here! Look up! The solar controller on our coach is screwed to the ceiling of a basement compartment, as is the inverter, and transfer switch. When in doubt, look up!

And we're almost from Oregon-Butte Co, south of Redding; out in the sticks (the way we like it!)
