    Questions about truck camper setup

    It came down to availability of the systems I want to run and the cost of those systems in 12v vs 24v. It’s possible I could’ve made it all happen for around the same price. In all likelihood, an induction cooktop is the only significant AC load I’ll ever have on the system.

    Questions about truck camper setup

    One thing not pencilling out for me. If say, I go with a 300ah chins or ampertime with a 200a bms and I hook it to a 2000w 12v inverter that peaks at 4000w. For whatever reason, the stars align and I hit peak while the wife is using a hot plate and I'm outside using a power tool and every DC...

    Questions about truck camper setup

    I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I am ever so close to pulling the trigger on the battery portion of my setup and here’s where I’m at: I don’t need low temp protection. My batteries will be in the conditioned space of the camper. As an additional safeguard, I can use a temp sensor of a...

    Questions about truck camper setup

    We plan on being gone for 5 or so hours at a time on mountain bike rides or something similar. Plenty of time to snag some panels. I guess worst case scenario, they’re making off with less than $300 worth of gear. But still…

    Questions about truck camper setup

    I think I have a simple solution. I’ll use a single pole double throw switch, such as this 30a Leviton: Pole one will be wired to the load side (AC output) of the inverter. Pole two will be wired to the line side (AC input) of the inverter and the shore plug wiring. The line terminal of the...

    Questions about truck camper setup

    I agree. We have a 1 year old rv with all the goodies that we could take if visiting the hotter climates/SW. Some places are inaccessible with it due to size though, hence the truck camper build. I believe the RTX pulls 19a in eco mode. So in theory, the 4800 wh should be able to maintain...

    Questions about truck camper setup

    Fridge is an iceco 12v dc. Water heater will be diesel and I’m planning on doing hydronic heat with that. The camper is an empty shell and I’m building the entire thing out to maximize space, but I get what you are saying by pumping the brakes on purchases. I’ve been 3d modeling the components...

    Questions about truck camper setup

    I bought a truck camper that will be here in May. In the meantime, I’m buying things to go into/onto the camper; currently working on the solar setup. Renogy was having a sale so I bought the 50a dc-to-dc charger/mppt and their 2000w inverter charger. I also ordered four 100w Renogy black...

    Not off grid, just 100% offset for my energy requirements. I just played with that website. Mine was very close to yours on average for 10kW. I used $.28kWh. My off peak, where the large majority of my consumption is, is $.20. My peak is $.49kWh.

    Doing some basic math: 42,000/5=8400. So I guess I’ll need a 8.4kWh array. That sound about right?

    Hey All, I’m looking to install a ground mount on my property. My usage was about 12 kWh/day until I bought an EV. Now it’s roughly 42kWh/day, due to my 120 mile/day commute. In other words, I’m looking to produce about 1200kWh per month. Looking forward to picking everyone’s brains here...
