The trick to understanding a solar set-up is to first identify the kind of RVing you like to do and second, understand how much power is required to maintain that lifestyle. For example, do you enjoy watching TV or running a microwave, and if so, how many batteries do you need to recharge while you are on the road? Solar is an excellent source of power, and if sized correctly, can provide a clean and quiet lifestyle and the ability to travel off the grid.
1. What kind of RVer are you?
Just the Essentials & Battery Maintenance (DC Power only)
Your battery will power lights, fans and other DC appliances. Solar will help to ensure a healthy battery charge and extends battery life up to 50%! Save the cost of shore power and battery replacements.
Short-term or Comfort RVing (AC + DC Power)
Solar and inverter systems provide clean, quiet power enabling you the freedom to camp off-grid with the ability to run TVs, coffee makers and other AC powered devices.
Full-time RVing & Backup Power (AC + DC Power)
Solar and inverter systems allow for long-term, generator-free RVing with all the comforts of home. Don’t be stranded without power!
2. How much power do you need?
How much solar will you need to charge your battery bank? The more solar you have the faster you can re-charge.
What AC devices will you run at the same time? Your largest load will determine what inverter (and system) you will need.
