Solar works very well when your parked in the sun but what happens when boondocking in the trees? Trees,clouds,angle and amount of daylight hours all factors in efficiency.
Great information. While I was watching this, I was wondering if there is an option for wind power. I assume that setting up wind power would be more time consuming and maybe less energy created. Obviously, I don't have a clue on it.
did you bring your generator if so why not use it
This is the beauty of living in the desert! In the summer you can take the boil a pouch food on your car or the dirt & it'll be ready in about 20 minutes lol… You can fry an egg on your car out here. Storage capacity is huge!
Very interesting about the solar panels being in series and needing full sun without obstruction. Didn't know that. Good info.
Good video and warning about solar. People need to understand this. I have seen RV roofs loaded up with solar panels.At my house, I get less than 20% of my capacity during winter months as compared to the summer months. My system was planned with that reality, so, over the year, we get close to 100% of our usage.
Well sounds like movable panels are the way to go now don't it? Where the heck are you? Looks like the Kangamagus… Great information, thanks for sharing…
Very true on Solar energy, I found out that Solar LED's for simple yard and awning lighting would fail early if overcast sky or the panels were facing wrong, cant imagine anything above an LED making it much longer.
I have a small panel (portable) that I use when backpacking, and you're absolutely right on, the time of year (angle of the sun) or even a light haze of cloudiness can sure alter it's efficiency. Btw, which State are you in? The fall colors are incredible! Most of the campgrounds here in Oregon close up come mid October, unfortunately :(
great to see wish i could be doing that right now …you rock buddy.
Good to know !
still love the "crispy" picture you get from that camera… or is it your phone?
Great information, thanks! Subscribed.
