        Placas solares sobre o teto do caminhão ajudam da recarga do banco de baterias, correto?

        Ok so how long can you run pulling a constant 8000 volts before having to recharge? And how are you going to recharge the batteries should you run out during an event?


        I will not be pulling the full 8000 Watts. My system will use about 4K Watts max and that is if everything is on and AC which is the biggest draw will be off unless really hot outside. I over sized the inverter and battery bank so I would always only use 50% max. I will buy a big enough smart charger to charge overnight.

              Something about solar or wind power connected to the engine to recharge the battery bank...and why can't Angelo post a link. Something like that.

                  Augusto...iniciar su propio hilo sobre el camión blanco con los lunares. que es linda.

                  (Start another thread about the cute white truck with polka dots...in the video).

                  La comida se ve muy bien.

                  The food looks great.

                        I think he's saying "Solar plates above the roof of the truck helps to recover the battery bank, correct?"

                                No plywood on the ceiling although I should have gone that route but that would have taken up more room and the more height in the truck, the better. I put 2x4s up against the horizontal ceiling beams and I insulated the ceiling with R8 and some parts foam and I screwed the FRP to the aluminum beams and to the 2x4s.

                                    Outside of the wall. When I got the truck it already had insulation and plywood up and I left it in place. I am using the gray electrical PVC pipe. There are pictures in this thread of the surface wiring.

                                      have you gotten a chance to test the batteries yet ? I'm proably going to buy mine next week, as some lady hit my generator and now it runs weird so i am just waiting for the claim to be finalized

                                        I have all the 0 gauge wires made and all my parts but I need more 4 gauge wire to go from the distribution block to the fuses to the inverter and once I get and crimp those, I will set it all up.

                                                Does anyone know what these latches are called? Look at the door being held up, what is the name of this type of latch?

                                                    Hello everyone. Thanks for this thread, I tried to read it all because I want to start the same project. Thanks for all the valuable information. I'm doing the budget and I Want to ask  reese77, how much money have you spent so far? How could last me a gas cylinder of 100 pounds (50kg)? maybe a month or less? Thanks for your answers and sorry for my English.

                                                        100lb tank lasts me approx 6 days, running approx 6 hrs a day.
                                                        All depends on how much equipment your running, and for how long each day.

                                                          That's about right . To fill the 100 lb tank it's between 80 to 100 dollars in my area. So about 17 dollars a day .
