Hi! We are Michael + Jenny Justus. We post videos on our life of alternative + sustainable + healthy living. Our desire to live a more meaningful life led us to concoct a crazy plan: Downsize our belongings, ditch the “9-5,” and move full-time into a solar-powered, self-sustainable tiny home on wheels with our two dogs, Chase + Roni. Taking this leap into the unknown has completely transformed our future, so be sure to hit that SUBSCRIBE button, join the Justus League, and follow along to see where the journey take us!

    What happened to the closed captions?

  7. Bill Anderson says:

    Seasons Greetings to you both. I hope you have a wonderful Xmas, and stay in one place for a few days so that Santa can find you lol. I have enjoyed watching your journey since the beginning and look forward to even more videos in the New Year. Thanks for sharing.

    I want to say thankyou for helping me with the valve stems on the dually wheels I bought them on amazon

  11. 1dpandy says:

    When are you going to get on the road again?

  12. Blackbirds Photography says:

    Awesome Vid!! Did you use a 30 Amp fuse for each incoming solar panel?

  13. Idaho Rider says:

    You did a great job. Thanks for the video.

  14. Taka Yama says:

    Duet, you and Steve of More we Explore, are the only people I have ever heard call what electricians have always called junction box, a combiner box. Hen da yo. 変だよ。

  15. Darrell Wampler says:

    That combiner box is great idea. Especially the buss bars. That make adding more panels easier. 👍

  16. East Coast Granny says:

    So are you for hire for full install? As much as I would like to comprehend, this old gal still has trouble besides physically I am a mess. I am sure you are helping others very much! Love your channel

  17. Richard M says:

    Why didn't you take full advantage of your MPPT controller by wiring at least two panels in series. Then the current running from the combiner box to the charge controller is less (higher voltage, lower current = less resistive loss). Concerned about shading? Just curious.
