We have changed the interior around since we were blessed to receive the legal designation of an official "motor home" according to the Alaska DMV. Next step is to build the walls for the bathroom and install my battery bank. The bathroom walls will go behind the driverís seat and will be made of reclaimed wood.
I was able to get two deep cycle electric wheel chair batteries that were going to be thrown away. Iím charging them up and will be wiring them together. I also have a 12 volt truck battery I will use as well. The current plan is to charge all the batteries while at home with a standard car battery charger and take them camping to run our small electronics e.g. cells phones and laptop computer. For now the batteries will be in a plastic tote and mobile, without the ability to recharge while camping, however if the batteries prove to be decent I will get a 100 watt solar panel to recharge them while out camping and an inverter to run more electronics. We donít plan on camping for more than 1 week, so our electrical needs are limited, in the future I would like to get a 12 volt solar fridge.
Thanks for the info, the deep cycles are 12 volts each. They both are taking a charge. Here is a picture of my battery bank, I will not wire them all together since they're differ. I'll connect the two deep cycle batts to an inverter and the other to a seperator system or inverter. Hopefully it will give me enough juice for about a week with limited draw.
