^Just 5 amps? What is your battery setup?

I just have a single blue-top myself. I'm trying to keep weight down so that's about all that I want to carry. I do have a couple of battery powered fans.

My trailer fully loaded is only 1500lbs. The trailer battery will run everything in the trailer for about 3 days except for the a\c and the built in tv\dvd. The tv and a\c take 110v power. I have solar power to recharge battery.

Im planning on installing more solar panels, 2 more larger batteries, and a converter for the a\c and the tv!!!

^You've got a cool plan going! Keep us up-to-date on it.

Well my trailer is a new thing and so is having auxiliary power. It's about 1100#s. So far I'm pretty much using the battery to charge my MacBook, iPad, camera batteries, etc., with an inverter. I did buy a Lightforce handheld light that I hooked directly to the battery (so I can communicate with UFOs and hunt big foot ).

And since this is a picture thread I guess I should post another picture! This is in my trailer thread but it's recent. It's my tree house on wheels.

Early days on my trailer build.

This is from last week - lights have been added and the fenders will go on tomorrow. Pull out kitchen and solar power plant this weekend.

16" rims / 33" tires (have to upgrade the JK to match)

Well, you guys are giving me a ideas about fixing up my M416 into a hauler. I was thinking about selling it and use the money for a couple of other projects. Nothing like decisions.
