Not sure what you mean about portable power station. It could mean extra battery capacity,
portable generator or a battery/inverter pack to produce 120V power.

Here is an article that discusses the latter two: https://www.bestpowerstation.com/best-generator-for-rv/

If you mean batteries, you can change the typical single group 24 battery (about 70 AHs) to a single group 31 and get about 100 amp hours. Or go with two 6V golf cart batteries wired in parallel and get 220 amp hours.

Solar panel article here: https://mailchi.mp/fc579d244794/aluminum-camper-forum-newsletter?e=098d190c6d

Since I wrote it, Victron has come out with a series of MPPT controllers that are priced competitively with quality PWM controllers and I would recommend the Victron.

Hi Graham, will that Honda eu2000i inverter generator be able to power a 1500w hairdryer? How quiet are they? Does that propane conversion kit connect with a snap connector like the ones used for grills? The reason why I ask is, we're thinking of boon docking this summer and my wife has to have a hair dryer.

It might be the late reply, but I'd like to add my twopence.
Honda generator eu2000i operates silently from as low as 48 to 57 dBA which is a lot more quiet than a normal human conversation. the generator able to run from 4 to 9,6 hours on a single fuel tank, depending on the amount of load available. This makes the eu2000i generator for a long time applications like powering up your air conditioner and refrigerator. Source: https://www.bestpowerstation.com/best-generator-for-rv/
You may carry the generator around without having to put too much effort on it. It has a lightweight design which makes it easier for you to carry it around.

In one of the newsletters on the aluminumcamperforum I wrote an article about how to install a portable 100-200 watt solar panel system which should be plenty for most users needs. Note that the article first tries to talk you out of solar by installing bigger batteries first  ;).

Hi David, would you tell me the detail url?

The COSTWAY Compact Refrigerator is our best overall choice because of the numerous features it offers. It doesn't take up too much space. It has a two-door design with a freezer. The shelves are adjustable and it is efficient enough to serve you for a long time.

Try talking to the dealer you bought it from, they should be able to help you.  I had mine in for warranty work, my vinyl flooring wrinkled in my toy hauler and they put a rubber diamond plate in for me.  Maybe It will be covered as well.

CampLite Travel Trailers / windows on 2018 21RBS
« Last post by herb2962 on October 11, 2019, 12:01:44 PM »
I was wondering if anybody has replaced a window pane on the newer models. We own a 2018 21RBS and are very happy with it.
On our last long trip we must have had a rock come up from the road, knocking out a corner on the front driver side window pane.
I'd like to find out where to get a replacement and would appreciate any comments.
