Going camping next weekend and wanted to add something new to test for this trip...

Mocked up the solar panel and installed charging ports in the tent.

I wanted to add some led light strips but ran out of time.

That is a pretty sweet addition. Good shit
We had to run the fan all the way down last time and it limited placement. I need to find a nicer way to mount the panel but options are quite limited this little nook in the middle seems to work the best since it is there when opened and closed.

As far as solar I found a phone app that tells you optimal panel angle for where you are and includes a tool to let you use your phone to set the angle. Then just point the panel true south and #profit!

I'm struggling for where to mount the large panel anywhere on the trailer.... Also I'd like to park the trailer in the shade when possible so for now mobile panels are likely gonna be the answer. I could add a second smaller fixed panel to trailer to maximize input and get the best of both worlds. Its a 100watt panel and I can take up to 120 watts in. And I'll likely never see 100% efficiency so overlap is good.
