Daddy planned well for boon-docking, dry-camping, being off the grid (for all our non-RVer readers, that means no hookups for electric, water, or sewer). We have a 150-gallon water bladder to fill with fresh water and a jumbo size “blue boy” to empty our waste water from the holding tanks for the toilet, shower, and sinks.

Most importantly, Daddy designed and installed our solar system personally. For all you techies: six 6-volt, 305-amp AGM batteries, wired series parallel, giving us a total of 915 amps at 12 volts. These are powered by the sun (three 270-watt, 32-volt solar panels wired in parallel).

Supplemental energy is derived from a wind turbine, which can provide up to 40 kilowatts of power per month. All controlled by a Midnite Classic 150 and a Magnum 2800 watt inverter. He even installed a Trimetric meter that monitors our daily usage and recharging stats. Wow, my head is spinning from all that gobbly-gook jargon!
