OK so everyone is looking but no answers, well today was the day the 4 panels were installed on the roof, yes we took Brian's advice (that he gave me over the weekend) to use the wire chase behind the shelf's between the kitchen and the living room, took 5 hrs to get most of the work done, just have the inverter and controller to wire, about 2 more hours. I need to thank the staff at "Discount Solar" for there help, fantastic people.

How long will they supply electricity? How well do they travel?

Our hats are off to you! Wish we could do that also, but after being a fultimer for six months, we don't do enough dry camping to justify the costs. Heck we've only put 10 hours on our Generator. Normally we're hooked up to shore power.

The solar panels will supply power for as long as the sun is shining, panels are warrantied for 25yrs. We have never boon docked for any length of time, but now westay a site for extended lengths of time having to pay for power at rate of $.19 per kw, cost us last month 90 bucks, now we won't have that bill any more. Now have to replace all the halogen bulbs.

I purchased led light from heroledstore.com last year been using them for a year now.
Large lights lb-sg4-9t. They are 20 W and use 1.8 watts
Small lights lb-sg4-6t.They are 12 W and use 1.2 W of energy
So far they are the best price of anyone, if you order hundred $150 they will arrive within a week.
I ordered soft white and I find them like the original 20 W bulbs that were originally in here.
They have some 30 W bulbs but I don't know if it will fit the lights you could try them.

Thanks for the tip on heroled.com. They do seem to have good prices and good reviews. I will be buying some very soon.

I searched for those 'lb-sg4-9t' and 'lb-sg4-6t' bulbs at heroledstore.com but came up with nothing??? I have not yet removed (or looked at) the OEM halogen bulbs so I have no idea what the bulb base looks like.Please confirm the specs on the LED replacement bulbs. Thanks!
