Hope this gets traction in this corner of the house.....
This is, as far as I know, outside the box. I've had those ideas before. Some worked, very well. Some, eh.....you know.
So the battery is too small in the camper to power lights/furnace/fridge (residential) through the night. Also, the inverter ONLY powers the fridge. I need whole house AC. (Yes I know..... and I know how to do the math and install ammeters). So, shove in a bank of batteries, chemistry du jour, an inverter, charger, condition monitor and all that. Been there, done that.
But.... Sometimes we go somewhere for one night, like a friend's driveway, and then the Castle won't fit. So, we've used a truck camper for that in the past and plan to do so again. This would need inverter/batt power even more as it will probably not have a genny, and not all my friends have an outlet in their yard....
Then it struck me. PUT THE WHOLE SHOW IN THE TRUCK BED. Up front, LiFePO4 to keep the weight down, nice inverter and then a 120VAC cable to the fiver or TC. Or whatever appliance I am operating in the middle of a field. It happens.
So...... some questions swirling in my convoluted brain:
Charging while driving..... B2B
Charging in freezing temperatures. (We do the north south thing several times per winter....) Need to heat the box.
Charging with shore power
And more to come.....
