The Systems

PURPOSE

The mobile office has very powerful systems that make it self-reliant. With a 960 amp-hr battery bank,a 3000 watt inverter/charger, a 3000 watt pure sine inverter, 50 Amp service and a 6500 watt generator; it has a lot of power! For re-charging, the truck has a battery isolator to charge the batteries and a solar panel keeps the batteries charged year around. The 65 gallon fresh water tank supports week-end escapes while on the road for extended periods.
