    It was supposed to start happening by now. I'm not sure he's happy with the frame he has, although there's a newer one available. It really shouldn't take all that much to mount it. The camper already has all the tanks self-contained. I told him to just strap it down and send it.

    all taken into account in the initial cost/purchase, and never used again for operation, as usual, perpetuating misinformation of Russian trolling to keep oil demand up

    Pretty much what we're going to do...

    Not sure now. There's a new face in the collectors office that hasn't gotten to know us yet.

    I guess the point is because they could? The function is a 24HP picnic table that can transport seven people and a driver plus beverages around the campground while enjoying the latest playlist via Bluetooth. If you look closely you may be able to see the recycled snow-mo tracks around the rear tires. In the winter, the front tires get replaced by skis.

    Looking at this currently: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07RFQVB...v_ov_lig_dp_it

    200W seems like a good amount to recharge the portable battery and even the trailer battery in a decent amount of time in good sunlight. I like that this unit seems to have a good carrying case, included controller for the trailer battery (would bypass for the portable), and sturdy adjustable kickstand legs.

    That's tempting... wonder if it'd fit into my side storage bin... where's my tape measure?!

    Re: Micro Toy Haulers

    That's pretty nifty. Anything against permanently mounting it?
    I've been using Renogy and don't have a single complaint - if it fits your needs, go for it. They have great customer service that you should seldom need!

    Permanent mounting is still an option. As a noob it seems the portable solar can be better positioned to collect more sunlight; for example, I can be parked in the shade but have the panels in sunlight and reposition throughout the day. Aside from that, I see advantages to use a portable setup at home should the power go out for an extended period, or if I just want to take the Jeep camping without the trailer. Oh, and when I did my little trail ride to this campsite I added custom pinstriping so I'd feel the portable would at least be protected inside. But maybe permanent is way more practical? Not sure...

    I'm still planning to add a platform on the roof rack so I can sit up there. It would be nice to add permanent solar.

    Re: Micro Toy Haulers

    Down the line I'd consider a roof mounted permanent setup, but I've got other things that I want to tackle before then like a BIRD, updated power converter, etc. In the near term that portable setup looks handy for when I'm not at Loudon and don't want to run the generator to top the batts off.

    I'd just buy the new instead of save $80. I think that is renogy proper - you could call and see if they will still honor a warranty.

    Re: Micro Toy Haulers

    Been using the trailer a lot. Took it up to Sonoma Raceway for Yamaha day.



    Went to Big Bear and found a dispersed campsite. The ground clearance and small size was great.



    Then went to the Kern River and ran the AC for the dog but she preferred to sleep under the trailer in the 100 degree heat while we floated the river. At least the freezer and ice maker didn't have to work so hard! Also got to use the new leveling blocks. I don't know why I screwed around with rocks before



    Added bonus is we've been going into town for a nice meal while camping and leaving the trailer behind is a great camp-saver.

    I also finally installed my battery monitor after losing power one night. Apparently you need to charge these things! Luckily I had my generator, but now that I have this monitor I'm amazed I let it sit in the box for so long. Just did a temp install between trips with some spare foam, will do something a bit more refined.
