Solar and Sun ahead

It's official.  We are going solar.  We ordered 4 - 165 watt solar panels and a solar charge controller and all the switches and things that we need for the install.  We are getting it all shipped to Quartzsite where I am going to do the install.  I have asked Brian Boone of RV Boondocking with Solar to be my consultant.  He is currently doing installs at Quartzsite for a number of his customers.  So far he has been real helpful in confiming what will work best for me.  I would recommend him for your solar needs.  I'm hoping he will come and look at my RV before I start, and go over my plan and pick holes in it, and when I have finished the install, look at it to make sure it is right before I turn on the switch.  We are excited to get started.  Heres what we ordered.


We ordered 4 of these

We already have the following Xantrex Inverter/Charger in our Motorhome now along with 4 - 225AH 6 volt Interstate deep cycle batteries.  We may add 2 more batteries depending on how we manage with 4.



Make sure to follow us along when we do the install.  We hope to start around January 11th after we get to Quartzsite.

We headed back to the Casino Del Sol for supper and an evening of entertainment.  This is the casino we stayed overnight at earlier in our Tucson visit. We met Rowdy and Missy there and had a great night.  After a bit of successful gambling we came home with a few extra bucks.


Tomorrow is moving day again.  We look forward to a new view out our window.
