I dont think San Marcos feels like it has 50,000 people in it, they must be including the college kids. To me it feels like a city of 35-40,000.

Does anyone know anything about Trident Enterprises? According to the internet, they are opening a solar plant in San Marcos and doing mass hiring. Is this legitimate?

San Marcos isn't "Bible Belt conservative" -- it is fairly moderate/liberal and the Republicans are mainly of the business or libertarian variety rather than evangelical. It's the Democratic vote hub of Hays County, in part because of the Texas State student population and the Hispanic population. I loved living there for 4 years. It is a college town but not a small town. It was close enough to Austin for me to feel part of Austin too.

Haven't been to San MArcos in years. There are mom and pop restaurants you just have to hunt for them or check out Urban Spoon or Yelp and type in San Marcos in search and you may pull something up.Not sure what sort of jobs are available in HVAC .You might check with the college or even the school district.I work for the Schertz school district down the road from New Braunfels and we have an HVAC guy or two. In the past the place was known as a party town for the college kids and back in the 50s was "bible belt" conservative.Of course things change over time. People have moved there from Houston Austin San Antonio and elsewhere.
