Since I posted that message, I've done quite a bit of research, and I found a great company that makes RV specific solar equipment that is lighter and smaller than most of the competition, yet produces more power!!
is the name of the company, and I cant say enough about the customer service. I ordered my equipment on Friday and it's supposed to be in tomorrow. I drop the TT off at General RV in Wixom, MI to be installed and I'll post some pictures when the install is finished.
Although everyone I've talked with has said you can do it yourself, I'd rather have it installed professionally and know I have a warranty if anything goes wrong. The extra cost should make up in piece of mind in the long run.
I think I can fit 3 panels on the roof and with a bank of 4 6-volt Glass Mat batteries, I think I should be able to last a few days without having to worry about shore power or charging with the generator. I ordered a 2000watt inverter and the eletrician at General RV said that a 1500 watt unit would run our TT fine, but the price difference was only a few hundred dollars and with a 2000watt unit, I should be able to run the microwave or A/C (Not at the same time) with no worries.
I'll post some pictures when the unit is finished.
We are also planning on upgrading to the 10 cubic foot fridge that Thetford just came out with. It's almost the same size as the Dometic that came in the Sunline, yet adds a full 2 feet of cubic space. I figure that will make a huge difference for our journey
