Two battery holder bases with straps
Solar controller
Battery disconnect
Power monitor
120v charger

120v in and out connections
Cooling fan
50 amp circuit breaker for crane

You have outdone yourself now ! Are there solar panels on the roof of the trailer or are you feeding the trailer batteries from the truck ? If the trailer has panels you can drop the trailer and it still be self contained up to a point .

I dont get out much but what or who is on the black flag on the trailer is it HUGH HEFNER ? or LARRY FLYNT ? The more i think about this there is a fortune to be made .You deilver the military cabana's up and down the beach for a set amount of time /for a set fee just think of spring break alone and you add a few amenities cooler a little mattress ! You will need me just to count all the money ! Start buying more trailers now !

Just a single 30w keeps it topped off. It's on a section of conduit (same material as the flag poles). Keep in mind the truck will be fully covered with solar up top. The panel is mounted on this (was jut going to be mockup but it's proven to be sturdy enough).

I actually did that for 20 years at a business I owned before I "went to real work"
*basically got too old to bang the employees so I finally put my two computer degrees to work

Two locations on the beach rented Hobbie Cats, jetSkis, windsurfers, chairs, umbrellas, floats. The location in the marina rented paddle boats, Aqua Cycles, little putt-putt boats, bumper boats, two-seat jet boats, Wave Runners, and a bunch of other water toys over the years.

It was tough. The only guys I hired were the Hobbie instructors/captains and the chase boat/rescue operators.

The rest were all high school and college chicks.

True story: every girl that applied for the job was required to do so in a swim suit. And their raises were earned....

Lot of fond memories.
