    April 30, 2020We have a question. We have read that some people are boondocking with residential refrigerators. How is this possible?:)

      Texas_Nomads April 30, 2020 I have 1200w of solar and 900ah of lithium batteries as my RR  requires only 15amps of DC for inverter to use for the RR 150w AC. plus if no sun for 3 days have 3600w genset to recharge batteries (in 2.5 yrs only needed this twice).

        Jim and Jan Hollis July 17 Sounds reasonable without breaking the bank. So - as someone who’s done it, what would 1600 watts of solar be on a 38 foot Type A with no solar now? We did put in 3 new AGM 2700 series batteries and have a 5500W Onan Marquis generator that we use often ...  more

      Vic and Wendy Johnson April 30, 2020 In our Escapees Boondockers BOF group there are 3 rigs who replaced failed cooling units with the compressor conversions in early 2019.  One couple added an extra panel and a couple batteries, both the other rigs had sufficient solar and batteries to...  more

      John & Linda April 30, 2020 Ok I get it. I have 900w of solar panels and 4-deep water cell house batteries and generator. I have 2003 Allegro Bus is this enough?

        Relentless Vacation May 1, 2020 With those batteries you will probably need to run the generator some

        Robbie & Alice May 1, 2020 John and Linda, my guess is that your 4 batteries are about 200ah.  If you are running a 12v system, you have 800ah which you can use 400ah without damaging the batteries.  Just figure your usage against your bank of amps.

      Relentless Vacation May 1, 2020 I plan on taking out the 12cf Norcold and replacing with an 18cf GE residential, almost exact same outside dimensions.

        WeMustRV May 4, 2020 You will not regret this.  We took out our dead Dometic 12 cubic foot and went to a Kenmore Elite side by side.  Fit in the same space.  It was a little taller so I have to cut down the base some.

      John & Linda May 1, 2020 I have 4 Deka 6 volt batteries at 230AH flooded dep cell and yes I'm running 12v. Does this still work?

        Robbie & Alice May 2, 2020 John & Linda.  230ah x 4 = 920ah/2 to get to 12v = 460/2 (50% of useable ah without hurting batteries) equal 230 ah.  IMO, not enough.
      • John & Linda
        Life is the Adventure May 4, 2020 If you have them connected 2s2p, you have 230AH usable @12v. Have you competed an energy audit? That is the only way you will know for certain. We replaced a Dometic 8cf absorption model with a Furrion 10cf 12vdc compressor model (fit without modification...  more

      Robbie & Alice May 4, 2020 We've had our system 6 years, and as fultimers (boondockers), every penny spent has been well worth our investment.  We never worry about how much electricity we use day or night.
