So young man for that board. 

What is the BEST Solar Panel for a 12volt Solar Battery Chargers.  Or the Best 12 volt solar panel charger unit out there at this time.  I have two top quality gas generator but looks at a solar unit for 12 volt batterys.

Yes, the top of the line would be the 110 watt panel bt Shell, it has a little higher voltage output than the 100 or 75 watt panel, the next is the BP brand, but no matter which brand you go with, make sure it's a mono crystal, single cut crystal.
Stay away from multi crystal, or thin film crap.
And most of all, don't buy a Chinese copy, they look good, but their mono cells are crap.

Heres what you want to look for, a panel that looks like this one.

Here is a mono, or single cut crystal cell.

How expensive is Solar power?

How expensive is Solar power?
It has gone up since Husien got involved, but as soon as he's gone, prices will plummet.
I'm thinking about buying up inventory when it crashes, then wait a couple of years for prices to level out, an pull a profit.

It will never be an investment to put them on your roof and sell back to the utility.
But it is perfect for living remotely or charging batteries when you break down.
I used to keep one in my truck for just such an event.

To me the 5 most impotent things you need to survive almost any thing are
#1 clean drinking water
#2 Food
#3 Firewood
#4 Weapons
#5 Lots of Ammo
With all the above you should be able to Survive almost anything

bamboo...thats right folks, you heard crazy ol' Billy...Bamboo.
 
It will grow anywhere, you can eat parts of it. It is resistient to termites, properly preserved (Soaked in salt water) or shellaked it will last longer than wood, stronger than wood.
 
You can make anything from it, furniture, a house/shack, cages or traps for animals or fish... WEAPONS. ;)   You can even build a boat THAT WILL NOT SINK from it.
 
It grows anywhere even in the cold. Just plant some shoots and forget about it, it will take over any other forest or vacant lot, field.

As a RV'er I've found that 6v battery cart batteries are superior to 12v for storage. Yes, they have to be wired in series instead of parallel. My so called 4 season class C MH wouldn't last a night at 22 degrees f with two 12v batteries but does quite well with 4 6v batteries. TG I have room on the battery tray for four 6v batteries. Have spent the night at 15 degrees f and 25 mph winds with no problem.

Just a tip for those who want to use solar electric and an inverter to run small appliances.

If you like the T-220, you'll love the L-16, it has the same footprint as the golf cart battery, but three times the capacity.
If you have the head room in the battery box, I highly recommend the Trojan L-16.
They cost quite a bit more, but they don't drink near as much water and last nearly twice as long.
I have sold both and found the L-16 just takes a beating better.
If you buy the H series, it has a full 100% 7 year guarantee free replacement.

You can buy Universal for about 20% less, they are an OK battery too.

Post by: Possumpoint on April 02, 2011, 11:16:36 AM
Unfortunately I don't have the head room. Tray might fit another two 6v's but I'm not sure it would handle the weight. The 4 I have do the job for me now.

How tall is that battery in the picture?
Title: Re: New Forum, Survival Tips
Post by: Solar on April 02, 2011, 11:34:34 AM
If I remember correctly, it's like 15' tall, sadly most RVs are designed for the D-8 or T-220 type deepcycle.
I retrofitted my RV to handle them, but lost a bench seat in the process.
I had to though, I  lived in mine for three years. :o

That was a very cramped three years by the way.
Title: Re: New Forum, Survival Tips
Post by: Possumpoint on April 02, 2011, 12:44:32 PM
I'll bet it was cramped. Our C is only 25' long. Most time spent in it has been one month. Two or three months would be pushing it.

We have a 30' 5th wheel with 2 12v now and we stay out sometimes 6 to 9 months with no problems.  But I also have a 3000 wt generator if needed.  Also a little 700 wt for just the batteries in the 5er or truck if needed.   When I need new batteries I will be changing over to 6v that will be wired in series instead of parallel.   But then again we are home for the bad winter months.   ;D

Yeah, it was a 28' Winnebago knockoff, nice RV for a week at a time, even a month if you wanted, but like you said, two or three months is pushing it.
I built a small 12X12' building just so I could have a place to put my TV so I wasn't bumping my nose against the screen. :))

When I first bought my property back in 89, we had 6 straight weeks of heavy snow, I was trapped inside with my Wolf and German Shepard, I don't remember how many times I tripped over them in the night trying to get to the bathroom.

Three years later, I sold it for a song, I just wanted it out of here.
Now I've got the bug for another. ::)

Not that I'm going to get rid of mine but the price of gas and 8 mpg is becoming a limiting factor with the RV.

Thats not that bad of mileage, Mine did OK as long as it was downhill with a serious tail wind. :D
I think I probably got the same, I just hated pulling into stations with the behemoth, filling one 50 gallon tank, then having to turn around and fill the other side.

Crap, I just realized, that would be nearly $400.00 today. :o
Can't blame ya for keeping it parked. You just made me rethink my decision about getting another.
I'll pull a trailer instead maybe...

If you don't have land, then reliable transportation is key......this means stocking up on fuel as well, this for generators and other things of course.

This is my only advice, well......the advice I can give the average person.

Something else I recently ran across that might be imperative for the person without a truck.
Would be to have one of those roof cargo carriers stocked with non perishables that are light, so in the even of an emergency, you could drag it out of the garage and be gone.

This is even good in the event of a fire.
You never know whats going to happen, and the last thing you want to do, is to be looking for underwear and tooth paste. :D

Exactly! I used to tell my son ( a once die hard lib) all the time, "You'll look great with a chain collar hoeing my garden" Ten years later, he says, "God Dad, I am becoming like you" Graduating and moving to Alaska has been the best wake up call he has ever had!

Nut the list should be:

1. Water
2. Ammo
3. Weapons
4. Firewood
5. Food Stock

Weapons & ammo are not only for safety and security, but are probably the best currency that you can count on in chaos.

You should gladly have more than you need of both.  What you don't need is food or medicine or whatever you need......in the bank.

It could easily get down to buying other stuff with a handful of rounds.  A gun could get you a shelter or an animal.

Guns would be a must have for currency in chaos. Also organs. If you could come up with a portable freezing system, you could take the organs from those killed by the currency guns, and then sell them on the chaos market to those wounded but not killed by the chaos guns. Of course you would be selling/trading the organs on the chaos market for either more ammo, or food, unless you ate the organs, in which case I think we should have some preset chaos rules of no cannibalism unless absolutely necessary.

Not sure what I was saying here - "What you don't need is food or medicine or whatever you need......in the bank".

Musta been posting under the influence lol.  I'm pretty sure that I was saying medicine, food, weapons, ammo, won't be gotten after the problems hit, with a bunch of cash or gold.  Either have enough of all of them, or have enough of any of them to barter for the rest.

And you'd be my bank organ, instead of freezing your parts, I'd just barely keep you alive until I need something to barter with.
Though, based on your post, I have to assume your liver will be of no use due to drug abuse.
Then there is the question of STD seeing how you most likely engage farm animals, so the rest is obviously contaminated.
Ah Hell, turns out you're probably absolutely worthless, so I'll just use you as target practice.
Start running ass hole, you got to the count of 10. 1...2....11, BANG... damn, never really could count.
