My major job will be to start my 12VDC battery upgrade for my OFF-ROAD POPUP trailer. My 85AH Interstates installed in 2008 are nearing the end of life and will not make it thru this season. Out of the four I started with I am down to two now. That is not enough to do our normal off-road camping and make it thru the night. The plan is to put two 82lb 150AH 12VDC batteries on the trailer tongue and then two more 82lb 150AH 12VDC batteries in the back of my truck. This will give me 300AHs for both trailer and truck to support their battery needs for camping off the power grid as well as running my emergency radio operations from both units when separated. When camping together then both systems can be connected together giving me a big total of 600Ahs battery capacity which should produce around 12VDC at 20AMPs for a published total of 18 hours or at least a realistic total of 9-12 hours before re-charging....
The other project that has my attention is to prove out my HYDRONIC Hot water heater mod for possible replacement of the OEM propane furnace system.
Another smaller project will be to get my three-inch triangle folding aluminum tower setup on the rear bumper to get me a center height of at least 15-feet above the trailer to support my off-center-fed windom HF wire antenna for better radio comms.
I have been stocking parts for these mods for a couple of years now - time to implement
All it takes is a little money haha...
My final acceptance testing will be done up in the George Washington Natl Forest on the VA/WVA mountain state line WSW of Harrisonburg VA near the forest service road FLAGPOLE KNOB area for at least a weeks outing camping off the power grid...
