Talking OFF-ROAD Battery Bank setup

Welcome back luckydad71.... I have been sidetracked here for a couple of season of doing any off-road camping but looking like I should be getting back on the trails this upcoming season. My 2008 StarCraft OFF-ROAD Popup camper is still in tact...

Will be supporting a new OFF-ROAD Battery Bank setup with solar battery charger panels mounted on the battery case slide off lid...

The battery bank is one of these Metal boxes with slide off lid. This one only show one small solar panel but mine will have two to support my two groups of 6VDC GC2 battery banks...

Will be replacing this original battery bank setup on my 2008 trailer tongue area...

I am not into RV TRAVEL but more of just camping OFF-GRID locally around Virginia with a few trips to maybe Gatlinburg or Myrtle Beach/Outer Banks for family outings/gettogethers...

It is amazing how all the support things wander off when you park the trailer for a couple of seasons haha... I still am looking and digging around for all my camping support items... Probably best to just go to WALMART/LOWES or order more from AMAZON hehe...

Looking forward to start playing with toys again back in the woods somewhere Creekside or up along Skyline Drive/Blue Ridge Parkway/Virginia-West Virginia wooded state line high country... That's all I need to keep me going for awhile longer...

My love is playing with Emergency Comms and Ham Radio ops back off-grid--- Pretty neat to be able to support all of this with my OFF-GRID modes and stay connected to the world haha...

Looks like you got a real nice setup for some road trips... Been seeing a lot of road trip camper setup coming into the local WALMART here in King George... Folks stocking up for their extended trips hehe...

NOTE: It appears JAYCOOWNERS Forums made a different post out of this which is fine with me. It was originally posted in reply to a post made by luckydad71
