Thanks for the reply, It works great. I hooked it up to a solar charger and it keeps my three batteries charged at all times.

Solar power - definately the way to go, as I've got one maybe 12" by 36" in my mighty diesel van to keep the batteries fully charged, and that panal (plus regulator) works like a champ !!
Maybe it's 10" x 28" but it's nothing major, and it will power reasonably sized 12 volt devices too :)

Okay. It's settled then. I have now read enough that I''m ready to go ahead and get the panels I need and couple extra batteries. Good thing I didn't finish my interior before I decided. Guess I wont be getting that motorcycle now. =(

I've found the set up I have is great for everyday use. I guess it all depends on what you plan on running and wattage /hours. my batteries are never low, in the past I have woke up in the middle of the night to the low power alarm going off.

Care to elaborate on your setup and wattage hours?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $5.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $5.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $5.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $5.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
