Hope he has lots of fun with it. I bet he's glad to be back on the road. Is this the 24hr AC runtime unit that Jim said could be built by October if he got a buyer or a different unit all together?

I guess I don't understand the point of an article that essentially tells you nothing, other than they let this guy help them build his RV.

Pretty teasy,especially with no pics. I wonder ho long Roadtrek will be able to continue the super secret, bleeding edge, routine before folks start to get immune to it?

Don't need pictures or technical details as I can understand Roadtreks desire to hang on to their trade secrets for as long as possible. But how about just telling us what capabilities this supposed "secret" system has. I've already concluded that the main advances in RV electrics for the future will involve higher voltage DC system. Either 24, 36 or even 48 volt DC systems will improve efficiencies, reduce weight and cost of the systems involved. The SAE has long had a 40 volt DC initiative for automotive applications, but it was pretty much rendered obsolete by the move to high voltage hybrid cars. My Prius has a 300+ volt main battery and a little tiny 12 volt battery for the minimal automotive systems like ignition, lights and ventilation. The 12V battery is kept charged by a simple DC-to-DC converter. There is no 12V alternator on a Prius. All electricity is generated at the high voltage.

Speaking of hybrids, I just came across this article on Daimler/Freightliner hybrid electric trucks. I hope these engines hit the RV market in a big way.

Still no mention of the new capabilities, under cover of a non-disclosure agreement. This is all just market hype by Roadtrek. Smart approach as it gets lots of interest.
