Airstream Life – Our Oregon Solar Install Trip – Part 2

We finally get back into the Airstream after the solar install and we hit the road for the trip back from Oregon to Tucson. Check out the adventures along the way and what we decided on for our solar system. Next week’s video will be a solar show and tell of all our components and where they were installed.

We had an amazing experience with AM Solar. If you are thinking of getting solar installed or looking to buy a solar package to install yourself we highly recommend them.

Friday Favorites – Putting up the Lights – Battery Operated LED String Lights

Occasionally on Friday’s we’d like to share with you some of our Favorite Things. These can be products, websites, or anything else that we love. Note we will ALWAYS say whether we are sponsored in any form from the companies we are sharing and these videos will ALWAYS reflect our true opinions. These are the things that bring us joy and we hope they can become your favorites as well.

This week’s Friday Favorite is our HAHOME Battery Operated LED String Lights. As you will see in the video we love these things. We have 4 strands: one in cool white, one in warm white, and 2 that are multi-colored.  The strands each have 50 tiny LEDs that are super bright and are made of wire so they can formed to almost anything. We keep the white strings up year-round in the Airstream and use the multi-colored for Christmas to make things more festive. For less than $10 a piece (at the time of publishing) plus 3 AA batteries we have a bright and festive Airstream.

Airstream Life – Our Oregon Solar Install Trip – Part 1

We’re on our way to AM Solar in Oregon to get our solar installed! Join us as we drive all the way from Tucson AZ to Springfield OR all 1500 miles in 3 days. We learn some lessons along the way too…like what to check if the Airstream’s brakes suddenly lock up, to look for truck stops with RV lanes!, and that Steve is a great Airstream driver in all sorts of weather. We finally get to AM Solar and start deciding what system we want…. We’ll show you what we decided and our trip back in the next video.

We had an amazing experience with AM Solar. If you are thinking of getting solar installed or looking to buy a solar package to install yourself we highly recommend them.

Friday Favorites – Doubling our Gray Tank – Valterra Shut Off Waste Valve

Occasionally on Friday’s we’d like to share with you some of our Favorite Things. These can be products, websites, or anything else that we love. Note we will ALWAYS say whether we are sponsored in any form from the companies we are sharing and these videos will ALWAYS reflect our true opinions. These are the things that bring us joy and we hope they can become your favorites as well.

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Valterra Shut Off Waste Valve. We mentioned this product in our Tuesday Talk where we discussed our Must Have’s and Nice to Have’s for your first night RVing but we like it so much we thought it deserves it’s own episode! With this valve we double our waste water capacity by equalizing between our gray and black water tanks allowing us to boondock longer. It’s super easy to use and makes Steve’s outdoor tasks a little less shitty 😉
