Troop 41 Goes Solar

The Troop is now harnessing the sun to power our campouts.  Finding anything in the trailer used to be a precarious flashlight hunt during campouts because there was just a dim glow from the dome lights that worked only when powered by the truck towing the trailer.  But not anymore!

Many thanks to Troop Committee members Mr. Liu, Mr. Schramm, and Mr. Hauge whom installed the solar panel on the trailer rooftop along with new LED strip lighting, 12v and USB outlets for supplying power and charging inside the trailer.
