What could be done to help them "green up" their act? Coachmen, a large company which builds RV's, has two technologies in mind. The first is to power the diesel engine with biodiesel. A good first step, right? The second is to add solar panels to the roof of the vehicle to charge the on-board batteries which power accessories. At this time, a portable generator is the preferred method of battery charging. Sounds like a pretty good second step. As the writer points out, these technologies are already proven effective, so, why would Coachmen need to do a "tremendous amount of testing" before implementing them? Oh well, we can hope that the testing takes place in a timely fashion.
