  1. i want to runs a small window unit ac during the day time here in florida….i know an electrical engineer but he cant be bothered to give me help

    I really like this system! Do you think adding a 2nd battery on that same cart would be simple to accomplish? I would imagine it takes up the remaining space on top of the truck, just curious if it would make hard to move around. I like how much cheaper it is! I've been thinking about getting the Ice chest looking system where the panels slide out from inside the unit. But your build is soooo much cheaper!!

  3. I enjoy your videos.

  4. I had almost this exact same setup a few years ago. But I out grew the dolly! Good Video!

    Desert Prep, more power to you. Pls make more videos like this one because it is not only so educational it is also super fun to watch and you nailed it brother, if all the youtube videos are like this one, we will be building a lot solar panels system all over the world and get rid of old, inefficient form of power generation that is not only dirty but expensive, thank you.

  6. Jacques B says:

    use maintenance free battery maybe even a lithium

  7. Steve Allen says:

    I really liked your video, clear concise manner in your delivery. I am designing a 2000 +/- system. I like your choice for solar panel's and charge controller. Am debating what I want for my batteries, I actually want 2 batteries. The trickle charge is a plus.I have subscribed to your Channel.

  8. I'm just trying to figure out what I need or how big of a system I need to live off grid with all the normal every day Life things being used

  9. Bang Stick says:

    I wouldn't be too much harder to add solar tracker and mount the panels on a rotating frame. Tie the cart using stakes to keep the wind from blowing it over

  10. K G says:

    My friend said that if you find an appropriate telescoping dolly you may be able to avoid removing the battery when transporting by car.

  11. S Ve says:

    Excellent presentation. I'd go with a 4 wheel cart to avoid tipping over the hand cart.

  12. you must have some sort of military background, your presentation was just like some that I've attended. Kuddos to you! I want to use something similar to run my entire RV one day. Great video and will look at you next video.

  13. I use Edison base three watt l.e.d.s. Two of my solar systems has one of theses bulbs burning constantly. Not much demand. I do not like glass mat batteries. One mistake and they are toast. A good li ion ought to go 2,000 cycles making them in line. Good information and well worth doing thanks!

  14. Never thought of doing this but I have a 2000 watt inverter, unused good battery, power bars, and solar panels. Just need a couple items. New project! Good stuff!

  15. One other note I am ditching my lead acid batteries in favor of li ion. Check out eBay for killer prices. With li ion you could lay the cart over no problem.

  16. I like your set up. Just one note I always install a small lamp connected directly to the battery. That way I have light I can use to find all of the other features of the solar system. It is tough to find controls in pitch darkness.

  17. Emmy Ann says:

    Awesome video thanks for the advice I'll build one like yours .

  18. guided one says:

    I have a question isn't two panels too much for One battery I thought two panels would charge three batteries like that

  19. Andy Grayson says:

    great video, makes it a lot easier to get the basics, being basic!

  20. Robert Lewis says:

    THANK VIDEO AS GREAT DETAIL HOW DID THAT AS LIVING AUSTRALIA BUSH THAT LOOK INTO THIS MY SELF

  21. fleshTH says:

    Wow.. I just came here because it looked interesting. Most of the time people say "affordable", but it's still more than i'm willing to spend. But this is actually fantastic. Plus, it can be a modular design. Allowing for incremental upgrades while keeping costs low. for example swapping out the battery for something other than lead acid.

  22. Look into replacing the lead battery with Lithium or something similar that is lighter and has a larger capacity.

  23. Would your outstanding unit not be better served with a Lipo battery in place of the lead acid one you used?

  24. Zippy says:

    Nice setup! I take it everything is fused? It's just that I couldn't see any fuses!

  25. The video has another voice disturbing the explanation.  I'll just have to find this info from a dealer.

  26. David Piper says:

    I think an AGM battery may be better, spill proof. Nice unit, well done.
