wind and water generators???? is this something we need???
we park our 5th wheel at the colorado river in the spring and fall, i have 560 watts of solar on the roof with (4) 6v batteries. we can pretty much run what we want during the day, but for some reason we don't seem to hold the charge that well at night, we run 3.5 volt swampcooler when we go to bed and watch a little TV, maybe a couple of hours, the TV consumes 55 watts and the dish dvr receiver consumes 50 watts. we have everything on timers so they are not left on all night. the batteries are 1 year old and have been properly maintained. i have heard that there are small water generators that we could perhaps set in the river to help increase our power at night, it would have to be something very small. we are also interested in setting up a small wind generator, again something small and portable. i know nothing about either wind or water generators and was wondering if anyone out there knows a bit about them, again we would be looking for something small and portable that we could tie into our existing system. thank you!
