AFFILIATE LINK DISCLOSURE: Friends, making a quality Loloho video is kind of like making sausage – only slightly more violent. It’s a ridiculous amount of work that typically involves high dollar camera drops, blue-screen-of-death computer crashes, and at least one angry shotgun wielding old man shouting, “Hey! Get the hell outta here!” Once the final video is posted, rewards here on YouTube are few and far between (unless you are a masochist who enjoys being verbally abused by anonymous trolls). One saving grace is our affiliate links. JUST CLICKING THESE LINKS HELPS TO SUPPORT OUR LITTLE SHOW. Think of this clicking as like tipping – except that it doesn’t cost you anything extra! If you eventually make a purchase via one of our affiliate links, we will receive a few pennies (and Sean typically invests these pennies in duct tape and video gear). Again, it doesn’t cost you anything to click these links, and it’s a great help to us. As always, safe travels, happy camping, and THANK YOU!

    Does the converter/inverter charger and battery system under the bed create unwanted heat when sleeping? We like a cool bedroom so we're concerned about this if we decide to do what you did.

    Those lead acid battery's that come with RV's are dual purpose, no really deep cycle battery's. A deep cycle will allow 50% discharge and last a while. Those Interstates won't last.

    I want to do exactly what you are doing, but do not own a Air Stream or have an Air Stream Solar Install expert. Would you know where to start a reputable solar installer for an RV since it is obviously a different animal that a brick & mortar home? Thank You.

    Wonder when mfrs are going to include full solar systems in RVs? It'll be expensive for sure. I like the idea of doing my own- custom and sized right for my rig/needs.

    I love your videos..I learn A LOT. I just bought a used RV and am adding accessories to it… so your advice is always considered.. I do have one question….. I was told it is very easy to break into a RV because they ALL have the very same key… there are no different keys.. they are all the same … is that really true ??

    Don't forget battle born batteries can not be charged below freezing temps or you kill the battery. Make sure you install a heating duck in your battery compartment if it doesn't have one.

    We are on the fence between installing onboard Onan generator and doing solar and Battle Born. Looking forward to your upcoming videos.

    Really happy for you adding some solar.. my a/c is not powered by solar but everything else is pretty well covered.. glad you found some help…seems like more shops and preppers are needed in the SE now that solar can power some a/c's at least for awhile.. congrats on your new system!

    Really looking forward to your solar panel installation. Glad you went with Renogy as opposed to the more expensive brands.

    People only complain about FLA battery because they don't know how to charge them properly.

    Congrats on your long overdue membership in the Solar Club! I installed 2,000 Watts of solar and 14.4kWh of Lithium in our fifth wheel when we went full time. On our recent trip, we stayed in Everglades NP for 5 nights with no hookups. The batteries dipped as low as 43% on the 4th day (not a problem with Lithium). There was no better feeling after the 5th day, which was perfectly clear from sunrise to sunset, and seeing the batteries FULLY topped off at 100% in one day. We have a 4,000 Watt inverter, and while we COULD run one air conditioner, we choose not to. We do however have a 18CF residential refrigerator, a 3CF mini fridge, and a Dometic chest freezer, which all run on the inverter.

    Although its none of our business will you be discussing cost ? We've talked about adding solar to our 5th wheel but haven't looked into it because of cost vs usage.

    Yes, I'll get to putting solar on our trailer but,,,, I will NOT be buying those battleborn batteries at the just stupid price of a grand each!!! Will probably end up with 6V deep cycle batteries.. Yes the lithium is better in all ways, but way too much money for them!!.. Thanks for the intro, will be looking forward to your project, always enjoy your videos!!!

    Airstream needs to make a Toyhauler or do they ? I’ve never seen one .I had a Weekend Warrior for 13 years and now have upgraded to a Attitude toyhauler . The reason I like toyhaulers are of course #1 hauling my toys with me but also #2 on board generator that is quieter then portable generators also on board fuel station that supplies the generator without having to fill it up . and is also used for fueling up toys and #3 my new rig also has solar . What a difference. Keeps house batteries charged for boondocking Also has USB ports to charge phones and stuff without running the generator. Love the videos keep them coming. Happy trails .

    I think this just devolved into a XXX video 🤣🤣

    Great information…I’m a WD-40 fan, how is T-9 different? Other than it dices & slices unlike WD-40.
