Solar Panel Update

Recommended Posts

We have been off the grid for well over seventy days now, boondocking in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, above 10 K elevation, so I thought I would give a update on how the solar panels are doing. Our generator is run so infrequently that it's starter battery doesn't stay up ! Now, I sure do like that trick little wireless remote start and stop feature, so I have rigged a quick disconnect jumper cable to charge the generator's battery. That way should Betty need to use the microwave for something, I won't have to go outside to pull the manual starter rope. Here is a video look at the jumper set up:
