[tcb] Re: Question About Dual Battery Set-Up And Solar Panels

  But how many days? 3? Assuming 3, do you suppose 3 trickle chargers would be 
cheaper than a 45 watt panel and converter? Just a thought.

If you park the bus for a long period of time (in the sun) a trickle charger 
will help keep the batteries charged.  But you are talking about output in 
Milliamps, this will take days to charge a depleted battery

  And I was actually just wondering if just a little trickle charger panel 
would help much. They're so cheap I might just try one. 

  Thanks again for your time. Kelly

The only solar panels I have seen are the ones that were handed out for free at 
shows or a raffle or door prizes. They can be used as a trickle charges. If you 
are looking for a second battery, go to a battery rebuilder’s shop and buy a 
rebuilt one for $50-$60.

  Hello. I need to get a deep cycle RV battery for my Westfalia Campmobile. I'm 
seeing about a gazillion types with vastly varying prices. ($120-$600!)  Is it 
really all that complicated or can I just get the cheap Sears Marine/RV 
battery?  ($120) 

  Also, I have noticed a lot of Westies with solar panels. Why? If they have a 
campsite with electrical hook-up the battery can charge itself. If not, the 
alternator will charge it during a short drive. I don't get it. Why would 
anybody want to drop $400 for a solar panel? (Tell me it isn't just to be 
"green".) 

  Thanks for your time,...  )< (- (_ (_ `(
