    New member and new to RVing - just bought a '21 GD Imagine XLS 21BHE

    Hello -

    My family (wife and 7 year old daughter) is new to RVing. I grew up tent camping. We've been feeling cooped up and wanted to get out and experience the great outdoors - so we tried tent camping. My wife and daughter said they liked it, but want some modern conveniences, so we decided that RVing made the most sense. I look forward to getting into the forum and learning all of your tricks. My current project is adding solar panels to the 'Solar ready' system.

    Cheers,

    Bill, Jamie and Evie

    Welcome. Adventure awaits. Hope you did lots of research on solar power. Biggest mistake most folks make is to use to small wiring - DC has a lot more line loss.

    Welcome to the family! You can create a signature block with your RV and tow vehicle information (see mine below). That way you won't have to repeat that information whenever you post or ask a question. You can create a signature by going to:

    Forum Actions (on menu bar) -> Edit Profile -> Edit Signature (under My Settings on the left)

    Happy camping!

    Welcome
    The solar wiring GD installs really is inadequate in gauge and may just be a good entry point to put in REAL solar wiring. Essentially GD using the solar plug as a gimmick to make you think it’s solar ready with 25 dollars in parts.

    Plenty of very knowledgeable solar people on the forums
