THOR #5906
We recently purchased a Challenger 37tb and just did our first long dry camping with it to the desert for Thanksgiving. Before we even left the lot to bring it home we added 2 Lifeline batteries to replace the junk batteries that come with the coach. Added 2 160w solar panels. This was our true test as we were dry camping for 4 nights and running the heater at night. Also during the day was little sun to help with the solar charging. I have found to leave the fridge on the lowest settings both for the freezer and fridge areas. Also I am now looking into a solar panel tilt kit to help get as much as the sun as possible. When the panels are mounted flat on the roof they do get some power but if they were tilted I could get alot more. Since we were dry camped for 4 days the tilt option would have been great. I have learned alot just on this one trip. Plan on adding one more panel and 2 more batteries to the bank as well as the tilt kit.
