Added solar panel

Ok, added another solar panel and a 2000 watt nature power sine wave inverter. Hopefully other than a few necessities we are done with add ons unless anyone can think of something we totally missed. If so please chime in. Thanks to everyone

Shop still has it but as soon as I rescue it pics will follow. IF of course I can figure out how to post in this forum??? lol. I know nothing about URL's. Usually I can just browse and pick one from lightroom or my other pics but here... something about a URL.
I've heard of it but have no idea how to do it.

There is a lot of info here---
http://www.crossroadsowners.com/foru...sics-7131.html

This should help with posting pics.

How to add photos to a post
  • Click reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
  • Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 800 x 600 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 400K is recommended. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.

About attachment storage limits

When you upload a copy of an image file (or other attachment) it is stored on our servers. We highly recommend that you reduce file sizes before uploading them to posts and threads.

Test to show pic of the truck. Yay, It worked. Thanks Lloyd!

Here is a summary of the modifications of our 5ver up to this point.
2000 inverter as noted above.
2 150 watt solar panels
5500 generator
Backup camera
Surge protector or regulator from Progressive Industries
Water pressure valve 50 psi

Still won't get the unit till next week but these changes were made primarily so I would have enough power to keep a C pap machine going all night in case we go boondocking. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Good looking truck Jay! Glad you got that picture posting down.
Don't know if you are aware of it or not, but they now have portable battery packs for those C pap machines.

Anyway, it sounds like you are good to tackle just about anything with that new rig. I'm jealous.

Now, I'll test you again.
See if you can place the make, model, and year of your camper in your sig.
You can also add your truck if you want to.
