Ummmm...I think it's a 'Mexican thing' Ron. At least my wife, who was born in Puerto Vallarta thinks so.

Tacos are trendy here on the Island. I was amazed at how many sushi places there were in the Kootneys last summer though.

Also, is it safe there to leave your rig while you're gone? What type of hitch lock do you have?
At 9:40 this morning, the Morningstar solar controller panel showed the batteries being "bulk" charged at 13.6 volts with solar charging at 17.2 amps, 233 watts...battery temps at 71 F. The sun was at an angle to the panels that early and the solar power was slowly building as the sun moved higher and more directly south during the day...and the NovaKool refer was at 6 F freezer and 33 F refer when I last looked. Man, beer is really good when it's that cold!

Steve,

Please more on your Solar. Could you detail your Daily AMP HR consumption and what you are using ( duty cycle of Novacool, blender etc. ) Do you get to 100% charge on most day's. I believe you have 350 watts of panel @ 17volts, with 40 amp MPPT controller and 4 six volt batteries ? And of course, what is amp hrs needed to prepare a dish of Poutine?
