Deck boards still need to be screwed in but you get the idea..
I've hit a snag with the solar panel.. still crunching numbers because the quote from NAWS was more than twice my budget. I think by reducing some of our power needs and a little shopping around I can hopefully get the system down to $1500 or less, but it looks like theres no way I can run the fridge and pump with only 1 panel. Right now I'm looking at 2 135watt panels (IMP 7.63A) running DC to a single 212AH 12v AGM sealed deep cycle battery w/ a prostar 30amp charge controller.
Fridge pulls 5.4A @12v = 64.8watts x 8 hours (est. when compressor is actually going) x 7 days/ 7days = 518.4w
12v pump pulls 5A @ 12v = 60watts x .5 hours x 7 days/ 7days = 30w
Total watt-hr per day: 548.4 x 1.25 load correction factor = 685.5 watts
Battery: 212AH x 12v = 2544 watts / 2 = 1272 watts (50% battery power)
135watt Panel: IMP 7.6A x 5hr (avg. hours of daylight) = 38.15A x 12v = 457.8watts << thus I'll need 2 panels to get the battery charged to 685.5w right?????
Any input on that math would be appreciated
