Adventure Location: Lake Amistad, Texas
There is a well-known blogger that made a brag in a comment on another blog about using generators in the no generator area of a National Park.
“Well, we can't camp for a week without using a generator... no RV can.”
Well he is flat wrong. He may not be able to but there are plenty of us that do not need a generator to function. The Castle has been running on the solar panels for over two years now without need for a generator or shore power. Yes we have used shore power when it is paid for in the rent but we did not need it. The only things in the Castle that have to have shore power to run are the microwave and the AC. The microwave could run off the batts easily if the OFM would spend the cash for a larger inverter, but he does not see it as a requirement because the Castle has a stove.
AC is the only thing the OFM has not been able to figure a way to reasonably provide by solar power from his RV. The weight of the batts would be horrible.
Meanwhile the news on the Truck is that the alternator is worn out after only 208000 miles. The bad news is that the Truck has a heavy duty towing package which includes an alternator that is not stocked locally. The dealer is getting one shipped in for install tomorrow. The plan is to have the Truck back in good condition before closing tomorrow.
The overcast conditions today made for some very dreary pictures of a walk taken this morning. The pictures were all deleted because the area is not as bad as it appeared and the OFM likes truthful information on his blog. A nice bike ride was made and the OFM has tired legs after all the walking and biking today.
Tomorrow will be interesting as we attempt to try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
