The other thing I have done is bought a new TV for the motorhome.  It is a Kogan 24” 12 volt Smart TV that connects to the internet so we are able to watch our favourite movies on the likes of Binge, Youtube and Netflix.

Was quite excited to find it connects to the stereo via Bluetooth so we get good sound from it.


Watched three episodes of the new season of The Crown last night on Netflix.  Very happy with the new Motorhome TV.  Nice to be able to watch our favourite shows when away.

By the way, if you haven’t seen it yet, it seems ther new episodes of The Crown may be somewhat boring. 🙄

Additionally checked my data usage and on low resolution only used 2.5 gig of data for the three hours.  Happy with that

We had lights on from dark till we went to bed, TV and stereo for three hours watching TV.  When I went to bed the screen for the battery was showing 87.5% state of charge (SOC).

Woke up to showers and overcast and when I looked at it around 9.30 was already showing 100% SOC.

Think I will just ignore it now and let it do it’s own thing.  Grin Grin

Here we are at at 9.30 and 100% full batteries.  Solar put is still sitting around 10amps as it tapers off to float.

I know I said I was going to ignore it but couldn’t resist.   Grin Grin Grin Grin

No point of having the technology and not using it. Smiley

I plan on going away for a few days and testing my new batteries. The batteries are only the small part of the test though as I have made a few major modifications to our camper.

Apart from the coffee machine have been running the motorhome off the solar ever since we got here.

Today is our first fully overcast day with the threat of rain and at 8.30 am I took these two pics.

As you can see battery is at 85% SOC and 13.39 volts.  Even with full cloud cover the solar is still managing to input 3.23 amps.

Once again all I can say is I am content with the system.

Took this photo just after I started up for the return trip home yesterday.

This is the DC2DC charger throwing in 29.66amps.  Not bad fir a 30 amp charger.
