Thanks for the question OP.
I'm in the same boat.
So far I've looked at Renogy, Goal Zero, and Jackery.
Heard good things about Rockpals too.
Recently, a friend of mine bought a Lion Energy kit from Costco w/ the battery and 3 panels.
Even though it was on sale it was still pretty pricey $$.
Nice choice w/ the 710. One of the reasons I went with it too is lack of touchscreen. A few years ago we went snowmobiling in Island Park, ID. One night it got down to -20 or so. The aftermarket head unit in my Land Cruiser was essentially worthless until it warmed up and the touchscreen worked...
Ok, got a question for those of you that run a radio with a separate operation panel and a TX/RX unit.
In checking the cable situation out it appears that RT Systems requires the cable be plugged into the TX/RX unit to program the radio.
Since the TX/RX unit is inside the rear PS cargo panel...
Bought the mounting plate and attached it to the Front Runner rack a few years ago.
Add a couple extensions and it holds 8 gallons.
I've never had a problem with the locks but usually don't leave them up there unless it's a long trip.
But maybe that's because we live in a desert. Anyway...
Finally got it installed - now the question is, what's the best/easiest way to program it?
RT Systems for Kenwood TM-D710G or Kenwood's Memory Control Program for TM-D710G?
Any feedback and/or recommendations?
