Has anyone tried a Sundanzer? I have yet to read a review complaining about efficiency.

OP: Let me put a shameless plug in for having a little Honda EU2000i as a backup for your solar system. Caca Happens. When it's been three days without sun, and the XYL wants to blow-dry her hair, you'll be a hero. Greatest little things since sliced bread. Toss a gallon of gas at it and it'll run 12 hours charging batteries. Very quiet. And perfectly happy running out of gas, so you don't need to baby-sit it. Plug. Pull. Go away. Come back to a full charge and firm ice cream.

Yamaha makes a very good inverter genny too, but my fav is the Honda. YMMV.

You're in signals? Extra class ham here. PM me if you want to yak on 40 meters some time. BTW: your ham ticket gets you some amazing pricing (and free shipping) on an EU2000i from Call 'em and introduce yourself.

I absolutely agree. I used the same 2kw gen running a 1500 watt hammer drill for 10-12 hrs a day when I worked construction. Best generator hands down I've ever used... Totally worth the slightly higher price tag.

I've been researching solar - there is a blog; gentleman there has links to decide how many watts and panels you need - check it out...

Thanks again to all of you! I have to say the response was more than I expected with a somewhat vague question.

I decided to leave it alone and look at other things for the bus for about a week or so. Luckily enough I was on yt and found an awesome link that cleared it all up for me. This may be common sense in these parts and I apologize if it is but it was a resource for a noob like me so it may help someone else.

Well, sorry that didn't exactly hit the nail on the head. It seems that the Sundanzer is not a popular choice in this crowd. Without a link there's a few choices about what that could be. It's power related based on responses? It's a Sundanzer awning? Inverter? Ohh... gettng a headach. Not enough data.

Oddly enough it seems there are a lot of veterans with buses. Once you get used to being mobile you can't go back.
This is exactly how I feel. I am a navy brat and medically retired navy vet myself and if I am anywhere for more than two years I go nuts! Cannot wait for these next two years of conversion to pass by so we can get out of here! Five years is too long!
