We have one of these in our fifth wheel camper. It's occurred to me this would be wonderful in the GH. Temperature controlled -you tell it how hot it can get inside before it opens. Closes if it rains or gets too windy,

Not cheap -- but maybe a camper dealer would have some used. It's 12 volt. My husband is thinking about a solar charged 12 volt battery.

That's a great appliance, and well suited for a greenhouse. Do you know how much it costs new?

It costs over $250. My question is how do you wire the thing? I would certainly need a 120V-12V converter to start with. The rain-closure function would be of no use whatsoever, since I would mount the vents on the ends, not the top of the greenhouses.

My husband says use a small 12 Volt motorcycle battery (or lawn mower) and a solar charger. Wire it up -- that's what he says. Of course, I'll need to get it for a LOT less than the $250 price we see on line. Am going to check with my local RV dealer and see if they ever have any used ones.
