Handy Mod to Keep Truck Starter Batteries Charged Up When Parked
In this video, I use a spare solar controller to help cobble a system together to keep my truck batteries topped up. I utilized an existing 100W solar panel I have previously mounted on a toolbox and a 12VDC port in the truck bed.
This mod is desirable since I'm now running multiple surveillance cameras in and on the truck while parked. The extra recharge while the suns out will help keep the truck batteries charged and extend their life.
I can also use this new truck solar system to charge other batteries and even add more solar panels for faster charging up to 40 amps via a portable ground array.

Mod Version 2.0! Truck Tool Box Power System
This video shows how I have modded up a solar-powered battery and inverter installation in one of my truck tool boxes. Mostly I did it to power my Thinkware dash cams parking survivance mode power. But it will also be handy for other things like nighttime campsite rodent deterrent lights.
