Using Altrnative Energy to Create a Far More efficient RV

My handle is “Free Energy”
Since I could not find an energy efficient RV (they all seemed designed to need a huge electrical umbilical or a gasoline pipeline to function) anywhere, I have been designing RV energy systems and even entire super-insulated (space age thin non flammable super-insulation) RVs that use solar and other free for the taking alternative energy and require little or no generator use to provide free energy while parked.
I have been perfecting this over several years and now produce an excess energy even on the winter solstice.
I have also developed methods to make deep cycle batteries last many years longer by removing existing sulfation build-up.
I am also working with ultra-capacitors to avoid the inefficiency penalty of trying to charge batteries with extremely expensive generator runs.
Running a generator continuously to charge batteries is only about 5% efficient in terms of BTU content in the fuel converted to useful energy actually stored in the battery. With super-capacitors this could be increased to up to the 30-35% efficiency limit of an engine generator, thus reducing run times and gas consumption, since the engine would no longer need to run continuously. The generator would run briefly to charge the super capacitors occasionally, then shut down. Meanwhile the charged super-capacitors would then continue to charge the battery banks with the generator engine stopped!
Is there interest in your group for this RV free for the taking energy technology?

Best Regards
FREE ENERGY

Remember: A BTU reused is a BTU for free!

I've gotta say I'm intrigued! If I get a chance tomorrow, I'm gonna check out the links on yer generator post. I've done some small (extremely) scale tinkering with capacitance charging systems myself, and think it has great potential. Thanx for the additional info!

I'm interested. Where can we buy? and How much?

Plotting the next project now. Looking for a clean diesel pusher with low rust/miles. Identical plans with plumming and biodiesel added :)

Heck yes, I'm interested!

Hi, all - I'm new here and just in the dreaming phases of a conversion. But I know I want to go as energy-independent and self-sufficient as possible - especially with fuel prices so uncertain in the long term.

FreeEnergy, it sounds like you've done some amazing work. Would love to hear about it if you're willing to share.

Very glad to have found this site and forum - looking forward to checking out all the threads.

Cheers,
Lightning
