As we get more comfortable in the Little Guy Max, we are starting to test how long we can go using each of the various components (ie, water, propane, solar, tanks). Here is what we found:
Propane: 1 week with heavy use. We used the furnace heavily during a week with temperatures that dipped below 40 degrees each night. In addition, we used the propane for the fridge and stovetop.
Solar: Still working on testing it to its fullest, but we have successfully gone 3 days without having to run a generator or plug in. We have the 100 Watt solar panel on our Little Guy Max and it was enough to provide lights for the evening, engage the water pump, run the radio and kick the furnace on/off.
Water: We filled the tank and have gone 3 days and only used about half of what was in the tank. We were employing strict water conservation (did not run the shower) and limited water while washing dishes & cooking. If employing the same methods, we feel we could go a week.
Black & Gray tanks: We just wrapped up a full week before having to dump the tanks. This is with 2 people using the unit. Again – the shower was not used during this test.
