2007 Solar Toyota Tundra , now gets 4 MPD
Here it is, the first solar powered Toyota Tundra Crewman. A 300 watt solar panel and complete solar system with 60 amp charge controller, 300 psw inverter & 100 ah Calb lithium batteries should get me approximately 1,500 to 1,800 watts per day on the best sunny summer day. That would translate into approximately 4 MPD - miles per day. LOL , this puts the total amount of solar for OverTheTopCargoTrailer at around 2,800 watts. I'm a little worried because I hear that Roadtrek 190 Van is trying to catch up with my by using 750+ watts in panels and 700 AH of lithium batteries to run their AC. Psst don't tell them when I'm all done I'll have one 2,000 Ah of Lithium batteries on board.
