I am planning on using Lipo batteries, a DC air conditioner http://www.hotspotenergy.com/DC-air-...cs-DC48VRF.pdf and solar panels. I still have quite a few things to figure out ...
Looks Good - will be a Fun trip -
one thing to take into consideration when building
battery box for Lipo is they want to change size --
I thinks it is -
Battery wants to expand on fast discharge -
But box should Not Allow expansion -Strong -
Strong box also helps prevent dents to batteries -
Dents in Lipo is Not good - -
Thanks, I will keep that in mind when building battery box out.
What color is your van? -
I could not see the 2nd pdf -
AC unit looks nice -
Where are you going to mount the AC compressor ?
I'm still not 100% sure where or if I'm using that unit, but would mount it somewhere on the back.
Lots of decisions to make when Mounting solar panels-
things like easy of use and air drag - Heat -
I am going to be traveling where it is
mostly warm to hot and dry - few trees -
short country and stealth camping-
Many Highway miles -
White Van -
with solar panels available now Im going to
use rigid panels on a rack with Inch or so of air gap
between panels and roof-
for panel cooling -
Rack extended slightly forward to act as
brush guard for front edge of panel -
Permanent mount with thermal isolation -
moving panels would get old real quick -
Great ideas, and yes moving panels would get old
The rear swing out mount looks sweet -
How much weight will it hold?
Each side is 100b
How is it mounted to van ?
The roof rack that was on one of the links you posted
from what I could see it looked nice -
Right. I like the ones from Autoclima or IndelB. Much better suited than the one the OP chose.
I have the Autoclima Ugo.
Thanks for the info, where did you purchase your unit if you don't mind me asking? I'm also looking at these http://www.cruisencomfortusa.com the HD-12
