The line is about 1/2 inch line, would not fill too fast, but I may put a hose connection on it and pressure fill rather than gravity, except I will not have a way to vent fill pressure. Gotta think this one through. Thanks for the thought.

Solar Panel Project

Hello All,

I was about to start cleaning the roof of our 2017 Windsport 29M when I was surprised by a delivery of a Renogy 200 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel Kit!! (It was an early birthday present to myself...LOL). I am not going to share all the links to the products and materials used, they can be found on amazon, but I will share pictures. There are endless videos on solar panels and how to install them. For us 29M owners, I had to get creative when mounting the MPPT Charge Controller. If you decide to pull the trigger on a solar project, do your homework and plan, plan, plan!!!!

Once I tidy the wiring and give the sealant a chance to cure, I will clean the roof!!

Nice work Dino. I was installing the wiring for my inverter today in a 27.2 ACE, and found the solar wires in the bed cabinet where the charger/converter is. The solar controller will be easy, but getting wires out of there to the battery is tough. I’ll figure something out. Nice not to have to mess much with the wiring on the roof in these “pre wired” ones.

Why not tap into the battery wires at the charger / converter since the solar wires are near that area?

I saw a YouTube video of someone doing that way.

Or you could replace you acid batteries with lithium and keep then under the bed with all of the other gear! It's only money right

Spent 4 days cruising the Nile, 5 days in Cairo touring many amazing places including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Hard to believe what was accomplished 7,000 years ago with no metal tools, we can’t do these things now with our “modern” technology!!!

Outstanding Dave! My late wife, Dawn, and I did the same trip back in the mid 80's when we were stationed in Greece! We had an amazing adventure too!!

I just traded my Forest River 23' for a Thor 27.2. Today I ordered the Hellwig links (one pair only) to do the CHF in the front, as well as a SafeTPlus unit with bracket and the SuperSteer Track bar for the rear.

I don't want to tie you up with an all day job, would like advice and maybe help if you're not too busy. PM me at rpgmdinc@aol.com. Cell is 949-351-4248.
Hope all is well with you guys. I have most of the tools I believe.

best,

Rich
Before you add all that stuff get it Alligned ! I thought our 17 Challenger 37 TB needed all that, as it was White Knuckle, Constant Steering Inputs, I had it Alligned prior to getting a Steering Stabiliser installed.
Now it Tracks Straight down the Lane Hands Off ! Still haven't gotten the Steering Stabiliser.

I’m sure a lot has changed since you were last there. Security, Police, and military are everywhere, you can’t go 6 blocks without seeing someone with a gun. We had a Government Tourist Police Officer carrying a pistol and a machine gun with us everywhere we went. People were exceptionally nice and we never felt unsafe anywhere!

Funny story: The President of Egypt said “we have a drug problem here and we’re going to fix it.” Possession of drugs is now a Mandatory 25 years in prison, selling drugs is a Mandatory death sentence. Egypt doesn’t have a drug problem anymore!!! And the people love it!!!

Our best to you and Angie
