Solar Parts

A number of people have been asking me about what I have in the way of parts for the solar setup in my truck, so I figured I’d list the major components here for easy reference.  I’ve ditched the idea of building a custom solar generator in the truck for a few reasons – the main reason being, it’s a LOT easier to carry a Bluetti unit around and place it where I need to use it with no hassle.  The other reason is that I’ll be permanently mounting the solar gear in the camper trailer, where I plan on using it the most.  I can move the ARB fridge from the truck to the camper and back as I need to, and I can plug it into a power source other than my truck to keep it running – critical to being outdoors in the Texas heat – even in October and March.
