Hey all, My wife and I and our 2 old cats (14 and 16 years old) have been full time since 12/2014 and when we got our 30' 2002 HR Admiral class A
I went kind of crazy with the "off grid" thing.
We had the stove, fridge and Genset removed and replaced with induction top and DC fridge, then we had 5 315 watt 24 volt Solarworld panels put on sliders with 10 paired Renogy 100 watt flex panels under those that were paired so they made 24 volt like the big panels so 2600 watts of panels on top.
and these all fed into 2 TriStar TS-MPPT-60 Charge Controlers.
Then we had a 1000 watt 24 volt Windmax turbine mounted on the rig
because of course night happens.
And then all that feeds into 8 6 volt 250 AH AGM's which are housed in the stock battery bay and the Gen bay and wired for 24 volt which gives me 500 AH.
AND THEN all that goes into an Aims 6000 watt 24 volt split phase inverter/charger with an Aims 5000 watt 24 volt inverter as backup.
And then for communications we have 2 Blurex powered internet antennas
and a Wilson 4G cell phone booster.
So then about 6 months ago all of the Renogy flex panels died and the front Solarworld panel blew off on the freeway and was destroyed
We have since then acquired 2 325 watt 24 volt Solarworld panels which we are using as a movable ground mount so we are back up to 1900 watts on solar or 2900 watts if the wind is cooperating.
In the Arizona sun we are pulling 70 to 80 amps with solar or 90 to 100 amps with wind too and can run both of our roof AC's from 8 or 10 AM to 3 to 5 PM and our computers and the fridge and little stuff like that.
The reason for all this is we don't have a house or anything like that and we run 2 businesses [moderator edit] and the other a clothing business called Nomad Desert Wear so have all kinds of equipment to run no matter where we are, and let's face it I HATE POWER BILLS lol.
So there is our introduction to this Boondocker Forum.
We have been so Blessed by Yahweh and are very thankful for every gift we were given
May He bless you all!!
