Hello, my custom steel tube frame is complete and the subfloor is in place for running the electrical wiring and also propane lines. I am ready for the electrical challenge, which to me is pretty substantial. I will have both 12v and 120v wiring. I have no idea as to how large the 12v storage battery should be for this trailer. The trailer will have these items for electrical usage: a galley with lights, refrigerator and 120v and 12v sources of power . 12-v items: lights -12 total, galley receptacle, interior and exterior light, overhead fan, electrical brakes. 120v lights and switches -4, receptacle for galley, shore light receptacles-2 I was advised to use the Intellipower 4000 unit. 60 amp. Is it possible to set up for my trucks electrical system to recharge the 12v systems battery?
The trailer is 60" high by 66" wide by 108" long. Exterior size and shape was mandated by an aeronautical engineer with respect to my 4 x 4's shape, which will be the tow vehicle. The unit will have off road capability with ten inches of ground clearance. Trailer has 3,500 pd axle, springs, brakes and full sized tires. I bought a near new popup camper with its roof torn off and am incorporating most items from that unit into my trailer.
I have been informed that a solar panel here in NM would be a good idea. There is no set time limit on this build, and I will be building only one of these by myself, so ideas from outside sources are very welcome.
Thanks, in advance,
