Wheels.6

From Rags to Restoration

--------

{Wheels.6.10}: '85 VW Vanagon; '89 Mazda 323 {patrice} Tue, 24 Feb 2004 23:39:49 CST (13 lines)

Nope-- I only run them when I'm running the engine, though.  Then I
plug an inverter into wherever I'm parked with the appliance plug
attached. When I'm away from a plug-in camping for any length of time
I plan on no refrigeration and a small wood fire to heat water.

I do have to remember to unplug things from the cigarette lighter
when I turn the van off, though-- unlikethe Mazda the cigarette
lighter is active when the key is out of the ignition.

I checked out a solar panel for the roof and extra battery...but with
all the accessories and such taking up space--ack.  Coolers and
heating elements really suck up the jiuce and I'd need heavy deep
cycle batteries and 2 panels at least-- rather rough it.
