Solar Panels


Charging a battery bank in an RV, and offsetting the utility power consumption of a building are two very different uses for solar panels.  The operating conditions and system demands are nothing alike.  Mass produced grid-tied panels aren’t designed for the unique challenges of the RV environment. 

Solar panels for RVs need operating voltages high enough to overcome losses from high cell temperatures and long cable runs, yet low enough to efficiently charge 12 volt battery banks.  The panels need to be able to connect to each other in parallel and not drag down the entire system when exposed to partial shading.  Unique mounting conditions, road vibrations and freeway speed winds dictate that the panels should have a small footprint with narrow dimensions to avoid roof obstructions like refrigerator and air conditioner vents. Our solar panels are designed specifically to meet these needs with the RVer mind.

BEFORE YOU BUY:  Know that a solar panel alone will not give you usable power.  You will need mounts, cables, a combiner box, a charge controller, fuses/breakers, lugs, batteries and sometimes an inverter system.  Also, most installations require several solar panels.  For example, to offset a residential refrigerator we recommend a minimum of three solar panels.  Unless you are familiar with the technology and its capabilities please read through the DIY Instructions portion of our website to determine if this is the solution you are looking for, and don’t be afraid to contact our Tech Support team.
