In this video I tested out a few different options for a portable shower.  In the video I used the Ozark Trail Shower/Utility Tent, the Reliance Hydro Roller 8 Gallon Water Tank, Helio Pressure Shower, and the Innovative Outdoor Gear 12 Volt Turbo Shower.  The 12 volt shower pumps approximately 1 gallon of water per minute.

This is the Renogy 100 Watt Solar Briefcase. It comes with a basic PWM 10 amp charge controller with LCD display. I added my own MC4 connectors to the panel so I can daisy chain it together with my other panels. I currently own three of these 100 watt briefcase panels. Altogether with my other panels I have a total of 700 watts but I am still shopping around for a proper MPPT charge controller to run it all safely.

Nice article by Zoe at Xojane.com about going solar. Please check out the full article at the link below.
