Re: Kind Of Off Topic Tailgating Advice

Buy a Honda generator/ inverter write it off the day job? get a big one and trade power for goods at the T. G.?

Or remove a couple of batteries from the fleet of equipment for energy storage, remember the big screen will need less power under an awning lowering the ambient light levels.....

Install a chimney pipe on the truck/RV and hook up to the cigarette lighter, start and run the vehicle as needed to prevent discharged car battery......timer app on phone?

Re: Kind Of Off Topic Tailgating Advice

I ran it all day long with the one battery and the 100w solar panel it ran fine. The charge controller showed the battery never went below 65% (not real sure how accurate that was). My reasoning for not taking a generator is that it's a large parking lot. It has security but generators are the #1 thing targeted to be stolen. Especially red ones.

Roof mount the Genny? Paint it black or some "cheap" color......

Video camera inside the RV POINTED at the valuables

Back up video in friends vehicle(s).

Don't let the barbarians force you to live in their 'Jungle' of uncivilization.

Maybe a Semi tractor UPS?
