Linda gets close to a cool barrel cactus.

Setting up the solar panel to power the Engel fridge! (It worked awesome!)
The Brunton Solaris 52 was able to run the Engel fridge for 5-6 hours by itself. Nice to know if you are stranded with an Engel fridge and a solar panel you can still have cold beers.
It is also powerful enough to trickle charge the car battery at the same time.
Bob and Diesel
