Great report, enjoyed the photos! When I lived in Ontario, we used to ski tour up in Stanley and Idaho City. I always said Idaho is the best kept secret. A lot of beauty there.

Nice trip!
Do you have the inflatable kayak because you don't want to put a hard-side kayak on the roof?

We use the InstaPot several times every trip. Since there are only two of us, we use the Mini size, which makes enough for one dinner, with leftovers for another meal.

It is powered off the 200 amp hour batteries through the 2000W inverter. Depending on the meal, it uses 20-30% of the battery capacity. We are usually at full charge when we cook dinner, so the battery usage isnít a problem.

ooo. Do you mind sharing your power setup? what batteries do you use etc,,,? thanks for the new ideas. Love the hotspring hunting portion. It's gotten out of control out there. Glad you found some quieter ones

Here is a summary of the electrical system:

> 4 - 100 watt solar panels
> 2 - 100 amp-hour LiFePO4 batteries
> 2000 watt inverter
> 12V 130L fridge
> Webasto Petro Heater
> 2.6 gal HW heater with 12 volt heating element
- The hot water is automatically energized when the battery capacity hits 100%, so most of the time it is heated with "excessive solar" power.

This is the link to my build thread. The electrical system starts around post 122.
