My Zinger stays at a campground permanently. I only make it to the campground on weekends so it's unused 5 days out of the week. My question is I would like to save some power on electricity. Is it feasible to use solar power + a battery conditioner to trickle charge a bank of batteries to remove myself from the grid?
Does the standard inverter that comes with the trailer power everything inside the trailer when running off battery power?
How many batteries would I need for 2 days of average usage?
The trailers come with a converter. Converts 120v a-c to 12 volt dc to run lights, furnace, refrige on gas, and water heater on gas and charge battery. Does not supply power for air conditioner, microwave, wall receptacles or anything else that needs 120v a-c.

Gotcha, so I would need a relatively powerfultrue sine wave inverter as part of this setup. This project would get costly quick with 6 marine batteries, inverter, solar panels, charger. Not to mention the various wiring. Oh well, thanks for the quick reply though, Maybe I'm just better off saving some money on the electric bill by switching the fridge over to gas.
