7/22/2016 – 2015 Newmar Dutch Star, 40’

We installed 1,120W of solar through a Victron charge controller on this Class A motorhome.  Routing solar cables through vehicles like this can be especially challenging but we were lucky to find a path through a bathroom cabinet.  Special care had to be taken with the cables and shunt to preserve the functionality of the sliding battery rack.
