One day ultimately I would like to have batteries, some solar panels, a generator, and electricity throughout the bus as you would expect to see in a small bus-home, as this is our goal. By the end of the summer I would like to have a set-up in place that would allow me to upgrade to this without a lot of hassle.
For now, however, and to get us through next winter, we would like to have something in place that would allow us to run a space heater from a campground electrical set-up. That is the main goal, and if that is all we figured out how to do by the end of this summer, we would be okay with that. A couple outlets for some lamps would be nice, and if we had the ability to have a couple outlets for an RV fridge and a 5 cubic foot freezer, running all at the same time, that would be ideal, but if we had to unplug the freezer and fridge to run the space heater, we could live with that for this winter.
When I get a chance I will post some pictures of our little unit. We threw some stuff together very quickly during a couple long weeks at the end of last summer, and in my hast (and before discovering this site) I have done some things that of course should have been done differently, or in a different order.
