Another beautiful 75° day in Denver. A little rain shower in the afternoon but just enough to give the flowers a drink.
I dug out one of my old wireless rearview cameras this morning with the thought of possibly mounting it on the rear of the slide in pop-up camper. If you recall I couldn't get these cameras to work on the Arctic Fox because the wireless signal was so erratic, so I put them away thinking I would find a use for them sometime later, and now maybe I have. This is a good example of why it's so hard for me to get rid of anything. It looks like it will be a fairly easy project and since the camera and monitor would be so close together I believe this time it could actually work.
I've been studying on some solar panels for the pop-up and have already made a couple of decisions. Decision number one is to try and make as few decisions as possible because I don't like making decisions, making a decision limits my options.
Decision number two is to keep this solar project as simple and as inexpensive as possible. I didn't mind putting a fair amount of money into the solar system for the Arctic Fox because it's my home and having quality and reliable electricity for my home is very important to me. But the Palomino Bronco is just my Summer home, so having a lot of electricity available is more of a convenience than a necessity.
I'm probably going to buy a solar kit which is the panels the solar controller and all the accessories included in one package deal. I don't know if it's cheaper to buy it that way and I kind of doubt that it is, but it is more simple and convenient which is important to me at this point in time so I might go that way.
I'm also probably going to buy a more inexpensive brand such as Renogy because it's readily available on Amazon, Home Depot, and Walmart Internet sales, It has a decent reputation, and there again it's for my Summer home so if it fails it's not the end of the world.
I'm going to keep the two new AGM 6 volt batteries that are in the pop-up now and buy a solar system that's suitable for those two batteries. Which means I'll probably only have 2 or 3 one hundred watt panels on the roof. And since this is a pop up camper I'm very limited as to how much weight can be put on the roof.
