Part four of a complete solar panel and power system installation on a
i hope you are enjoying yourself when are you headed back
You rippa , I’m the first to give this video what it deserves. A BIG THUMBS
DOWN FOR TROY THE CLOWN …
troy your title says part 4 and the description says its the third video. i
think the description may be wrong. possibly.
that cig lighter plug wire is about the size I used on the solar fridge.
you’ll see it anyway.
Another thumbs up on this project. Once again, thanks for sharing install
concepts with us. Like the bench/box design, because it can also be done
outdoors by incorporating weather proofing, if there’s no space available
in a sheltered location. Instead of a flat top, slanting one to shed rain.
Wire entrances & exits can be done with suitable waterproof exterior outlet
box covers. And/or underneath with applicable gaskets. Naturally
ventilation/insulation would be taken into consideration based on climate
No fuse on the Cigarette outlet, any reason for this
Did it start raining towards the end, got massive static ?
I the trolls act fast…. :/
Any update on the camper? The north east has been getting hit hard while
you are in aussyland.
Yes as i see it it looks ok. to me
- Light charged need fuse for sure
- AC outlet should not be on the floor. a bit water on the floor..and you
have dead person..
- Fuse should be always first switch after but well i suppose you could
- That ac/dc converter looked a bit loose there. I hope you did something
- Still i didn’t see any went for hot and cold air. two wents to be exact
with proper grils on them so ( you don’t want any visitor there ) .
- Ac should have fuse as well.
- Now i’m not sure about this or about regulation. But here you can’t put
any equipment(or outlets) on flammable surface (wood for example) there
always must be something that flames will not touch.
- I’m not sure about quality of that inverter and what it will do when it
is overheated but well i suppose you know what you got there :)
Nice. I would suggest a thick gauge screen (or a metal plate) over the
hole you cut (to keep out mice, etc). Also some fans with thermal sensors
(thermal switch or thermostat) to bring in outside air and vent internal
air for cooling. The owner might consider this some time in the future.
Also, some sort flame resistant (fire/heat block) material between the
components and the flammable material (i.e.; the box).
You dont need to fuse your solar panels. But you do want to fuse the
battery. put the fuse a few inches away from the pos post. going to the
controller. No need to fuse the solar panel.
well done over all…pretty much the plan for my setup…waiting for a
couple of bus bars with fuses to arive to connect my panels to before going
into the controller
just a few suggestion.
1) as i remember the fuse for the inverter is 60 amps….that 12volt socket
should have a separate fuse on it rated around 10 amps….as troy
said…the socket already getting warm at 6 amp use
2) place a block of wood that extends beyond the 12v socket mount to
protect the socket from being bumped .
3) since unit is outside maybe staple a flap of plastic/leather over top of
socket to act as a rain shield
Hy Troy, I miss a fuse 20 amps in the ligter poitive, in case of a short
you will frie the thin wire!,also miising a fuse in the positive lead from
battery to solar regulator. In my opinion the fridge you are useing drawes
a lot of amps, a compressor type will draw a lot less, also available on 12
and 24 volts.., its what we do here often on the boats.
What you should of done is wire the 12v Socket to the controller [20A Load
This way the Controller can Prevent the Battery from being overdrawn due
the controller will cut the power if battery’s get too low
Controller will also act as a self resetting 20A fuse So when there is a
overdraw of AMPs it will isolate the 12v socket
Nice going Troy. I agree with the others, I would only run 120w continuous,
and fuse the lighter socket. Take care Buddy, miss you at home! lol
Listening to the rain and then seeing the power strip sitting on the cement
I was curious if that could be attached to the side of the wood box to keep
water off of it.
This project turned out very well. It will help me if I ever set up my own.
Things are changing for the worse back home…more corporate assaults on
your right to NOT pay corporations for things you don’t use.
Basically, they’re trying to say that you MUST be hooked into the grid in
some way, so you MUST pay for it…even if you don’t use it.
Troy I really wish that these people that have this huge crush on you would
give it up and move on. They obviously don’t know how to express themselves
properly. I myself just enjoy watching and learning and seeing places I
wouldn’t otherwise. Well Troy be safe.
Very well done Troy Keep up the hard and good quality work.
Troy,Is this something that they will be using all the time,or just in a
emergency ?Looks like it came out good.
Hi! Have you ever tried – Maxim Earth 4 Energy (Have a quick look on google
cant remember the website now)? Ive heard some awesome things about it and
my BF got excellent returns with it.
