Generator vs. Solar Panels
We are planning a trip on the Gibb River Road next summer in one of Britz's 4WD campers. We would like to bush camp as much as possible but are not sure how to do this and keep the fridge cool. According to Britz, we need to connect to power every two days to charge the battery that runs the fridge... but there are few powered sites along the Gibb River Road! So, I was wondering:
- Do we need to take a generator to charge the battery for the fridge?
- Could we get enough power if we rented some solar panels?
Thanks so much for your help.
