Awesome day boondocking at amusement park!
Let's just say that after spending many hours getting the solar installed for possible day trips, etc. I was very happy with the results.
18 of us family members went to our local Theme park (Frontier City, OKC) yesterday and all went well. I didn't have to use the noisy genset and we had power to spare.
We watched some football, used DVD player, ran a separate fan, used the Fantistic vent. As much as I tried I couldn't get the batteries below 99% while the sun was shining. It would have been a mistake to put in all that work and not be able to watch my trimetric meter tell me what a great job I did. (For my first install)
After the park closed we all just stayed and ate and enjoyed another hour or two together while the park cleared out. Good times indeed.
We did manage to get the batteries down to 95% after the sun went down.
ps. My wife wasn't completely happy that some of us were just as happy hanging out at the rv as in the park standing in lines. I think after the park closed and we were all forced to the rv she started to see how awesome it was.
240 watts of panels, 400 amp hours of AGM batteries, Tristar and trimetric.
