DML, Nick and I started to discuss this in the Chat room this morning but 86Neoplan
screwed up the board and nothing got settled.
Once we got used to the Chat Room and can get a group discussion going I believe it'll all work out OK. For the most part those of us who've been there a while seem to, while it's not intended, set the others off to the side. WE DON"T MEAN TO GUYS!
My MC5 has a 12.5 Kohler w/2 roof airs. The generator is too big and too heavy! I don't want to run that monster for just one roof air and the refrigerator while were traveling down the road with the sun in my eyes. I'd as soon have a 2-3KW inverter and let that big 24v Alternator handle the load. The generator is run by a 4 cylinder Perkins and while it's a sweet running genny...it's too heavy! A little 8KW Kubota would be all I need. That being said....
The only items I have on 12VDC are the CB radio and the Halogen headlights (and I don't drive at night) so I could meld my (3) GRP 31 batteries and the generator Battery into a large 24V bank and do a tap for the CB and the headlamps. Oh, the Jakes will be 12V too but for the little I'll use them they'd be OK on the same 12V tap. I'm really wishing to get rid of the (2) 8D starting batteries...more weight to haul around.
We're primarily going to be a post bus. I'll let the next guy worry about how he wants to configure HIS bus after he buys it!
I'm in the process of removing the bus air...the compressor will come out this week. I'll keep the blower bit remove the evaporator and the condenser..and perhaps gain a bit more basement room.
I just can't see hauling around extra weight that isn't paying it's way.
