Hybrid works for us

We have decided upon our hybrid combination, in the trailer and tow vehicle, of the following:
- 7.2 kW six BattleBorn GC2 batteries in the trailer
- 10.7 kW EcoFlow Delta Pro battery/inverter system in our Sprinter
- 190W solar panel on trailer roof (hope to be 380W soon)
- 200W Lensun portable solar panels/MPPT connect to trailer
- 400W Lensun solar panels connected to Delta Pro in Sprinter
- Honda EU2200i and EU2200i Companion generators which run off our two 30 lb propane tanks on trailer or single 20 lb propane tank in Sprinter. We usually use only one generator.

When boondocking, we’ve found that the 17.9 kW storage, supplemented by the combination or energy sources, provide the flexibility we like. The biggest daily DC draw is our Isotherm dual-compressor refrigerator. We figure the frig/freezer uses 750-1000W per day.

I think we’ve run the generators 3 or 4 times, primarily when we wanted to run our trailer’s heat pump during the day.

When at an RV park, we connect the trailer to pedestal’s 30A and Sprinter to pedestal’s 20A outlets.

Took us 4 years to develop this combination. Wish you the best on finding what works best for your power consumption and camping locations.
