RV Solar Panels

RV solar panels are a wonderful way to extend the amount of time that can possibly be spent camping in an RV. By utilizing solar power, the normal energy options may be greatly supplemented or entirely supplanted. With solar panels, you can rely far less on generators and batteries. There are several RV solar kits on the market today. Consider the following factors when searching for RV solar kits:

• How much power are you using? Are you a weekend RV camper or do you live in your recreational vehicle for extended periods of time? There are different sizes and capacities of RV solar kits. The average solar kits run from 50 watts to around 440 watts.
• What do you run in your RV? Are you just using basic lighting and water, or are you powering a microwave, TV, furnace and other amenities? The more power you need, the more solar panels and watts you will require.
• How is the local weather? Plenty of sunlight will be needed to charge up your solar panels. Using an inverter with a built-in charger will make it possible to charge up your batteries for use when it gets stormy. For those who only have a DC system and no generator, you will be out of power during bad weather.

Most RV owners install their own RV solar kits. Many of these kits come with solar panels, a charge controller, mounting structures, output wiring, fuses, and intermodule cables. Check with your individual vendor or reseller for the specifics of their kits’ contents. More solar panels may easily be added as energy needs increase. For those not up to the challenge, there are installation centers available in many states. Regardless of who installs it, you will certainly enjoy staying in your recreational vehicle longer with the help of solar energy.
