Re: Solar package with 2x 6 volt or 2 x 12 volt AGM batteries
From our experience, the panels work great, even in the forest. Last summer we boondocked in a thick cedar forest, where there was little, if any direct sunlight. We spent a lot of time searching for tiny sunbeams to sit in to drink our coffee! We never worried about using our lights (LEDs) and we even used the shower. Each day the batteries would rebound, in the shade. We did this for two weeks. We have had the same experience camping in Jasper, Alberta, where the furnace kicks in throughout the night as the temperature drops below freezing. I have made this point before on the forum, so forgive me, but we just are so happy with our panels. It was the best option for us. We run two six volt batteries, mounted on our rear bumper.
Just returned from our 26 day run down the Washington, Oregon and Northern California coast, then into Lassen Park, and finally to Folsum Lake neat Sacramento. What a great trip!
