    Great , you make it seem so easy!!!
    Now, I like to use a similar system to run a small 12V AC system with its
    compressor, its motor and its fan but don’t know how to figure out the size
    of the solar panels for all of that. What do you suggest?

    never seen a little ice maker…awesome..santa just brought me a 1000watt
    pure sine wave a 85w and 100watt panel on my 2 battery
    system….gotta try this out…when i find an ice maker…

    Someone that knows what they are doing can add a ‘starter coil’ (really
    more like a condenser on a car motor) that stores enough juice to get you
    past the initial spike of starting up. Full size A/C units use them
    routinely. Even on my motor coach roof units.

    Add a start capacitor so hard start kit to the compressor on the Ice
    machine, it will drop you watts.

    Where is my offgrid snow cone?

    Excellent – pair this up with a home made cooler box and you’ve got a
    fridge & freezer running for free.

    Impressive setup, how much was the total Solar Panel unit cost? Solar
    Panel, Inverter, Batteries. As you mentioned, would one 90W solar panel
    would be enough for this type of setup?

    You are awesome, and great video!

  18. Jarod Morris says:

    Add this to your ice chest air conditioner system and you’ve got all
    aspects of an air conditioning system from the sun. Love it.

  20. sethmeistergee says:

    Cool! Can you show the wiring diagram and part numbers involved so we can
    duplicate your setup?

  22. whosu1 says:

    Are you making enough solar power to run a fridge/freezer?

    instead of water could you add lemon juice and water or a banana and water
    mix for a frozen smoothie on the road
