Now trying to rig solar and batts to support a few
replacement items in electric. Have some useful items in mind for use in different weather ( cold or hot), and for cooking soups, eggs etc. and possibly a slightly larger fridge, and replace current water heater.
Also replacing lighting with LEDs everywhere. Any suggestions anywhere would be appreciated.
Starcool models usually have ducting in the SMB cabinets. IIRC the Ford aux air conditioner is a large unit that is mounted inside by the rear wheel well. The air outlets & ducting are different.
The Starcool 110vAC compressor is mounted outside under the vehicle (if you have that model) which takes up space. If the 110v compressor works it could be worth something to somebody. The 12v DC part of the Starcool (fan & condenser) is mounted inside typically under a cabinet. That too would be worth something if it's salvageable. I agree with Brian to make sure it's toast before ripping it out.
So what kind of water heater are you planning to put in?
LED lighting is almost a must. Just find a brightness that works for you. I prefer a softer light at night if I'm lounging around but like a more brilliant white light for cooking. Worth looking into 12 LED dimmers.
