We have the most beautiful site in a wooded campground. It has (or had) electric but unfortunately it was never hooked up properly - a former seasonal site holder paid to have it hooked up as that's how it works in this campground, if you have a non-electric site and want it hooked up, you have to pay a licenced electrical contractor to hook it up for you. Because it was never hooked up properly, it's causing issues for everyone else up the line, so they are disconnecting our electrical service.
I believe we were given the site last season because my husband is a licenced electrical contractor, and they knew the electrical at the site was wonky. He is full time military but this is his (legal) side job, just for kicks, he actually loses money at it.
The only reason I point that out is because we can't afford to put out $$ for parts (over $700 in parts alone, possibly a lot more if the wire has to be run back to the main panel...) on the chance we could be posted away any time.
So we are debating on just renting the site as non-serviced. It's about 1/3 less per year, which would help offset some of the costs of extra propane etc.
The only concern I have is keeping the trailer cool when it's really hot outside. We have two young children so I would like to keep them reasonably comfortable at night so they can sleep (and it would be nice for the adults too!). Is there any reasonable way to run the A/C without 110V power running to the unit? We are considering a decent solar powered system, only because (unlike paying for parts to upgrade the site) we can take it with us when we get posted out.
Other than finding a way to run the A/C, are there any good ways to keep cool without 110V hookup? I find the fans just don't cut it.
