I made the mistake of running my power too low. Then the clouds moved in and I was unable to get enough solar power to use my laptop. After two and a half weeks off-grid in the National Forest, it was bound to happen. Finally, but noon the next day there was enough sunshine to fire up the computer and get some on-line work done.
Fortunately, I'd left enough power in the batteries to run my c-pap. At least I was able to get a good night's sleep. It was cutting it close as the voltage was pretty low by morning. Also, I had enough charge left in the phone for emergencies.
In a couple days we'll be back on-grid at a private campground. I'll make sure all my batteries are topped off from the grid while we are there.
Right now my big power draw is the 12 volt cooler. I was really tempted to get a much more efficient one, but my lovely wife had an eye on the budget. We are making do with the one we have.
The oil and coolant are topped off in the van. The diesel tank and full and I topped off the veggie tank with grease. We are ready to hit the road.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
