This complete power system charges a single lithium battery with three different sources: solar, alternator and shore power. All charging and discharging systems are automatically regulated to optimize battery performance. This system can easily power LEDs, fans and cell phone chargers with DC, and on the AC side, shore power can go directly to the outlets when plugged in or power can be inverted from the battery when dry camping to cover loads like a blender, microwave or coffee pot.

Upgrade or Modification Options:
This complete kit is composed of five subsystems: Solar Charging, Battery Bank/Monitoring, Alternator Charging, AC Input/Output & DC Distribution. These subsystems can be removed or modified based on what you already have or want.
Changing the Panels: The charge controller can support a maximum of 450W, so 270W of solar panels with a similar Vmpp can be added. The easiest add-on would be more 90W panels assuming there is enough roof space. The current kit uses 2x 90W panels but these can be replaced with larger panels. You can also connect panels in series-parallel configurations if you have an even number, or use a larger commercial solar panel as long as you reinforce the mounts and only parallel panels of a similar Vmpp.
Change the Charge Controller: The current charge controller core is rated for 30A and uses 6ga cable. If you plan to use less solar wattage, a smaller core like the 15A might be more economical. Or, if you want more than 450W, check out our 50A charge controller core with 4ga cable.
External Port: An external charging port can be added that would allow for the use of folding panels as long as the charge controller can handle the extra wattage.
AGM Batteries: The standard configuration of this kit comes with a Lithium battery, but it will work with AGM batteries. Check out our various Lifeline AGM battery options 6V 220Ah, 6V 300Ah, 6V 400Ah and 12V 255Ah. All batteries need to be the same make, model and age.
Different Lithium Batteries: The standard configuration includes one 200Ah battery. By adding a some cables, a Lynx distributor and some Mega Fuses, you can add up to three more 200Ah batteries or use different sizes like the 60Ah, 90Ah, 160Ah, or 300Ah. The Lithium Base Kit with the Lynx Distributor can support up to four batteries as long as they are all the same amp-hour rating.
AC and DC Distribution
More DC Outlets: The standard configuration comes with a 6 position fuse block. We have a 12 position block available. You can also get more outlets.
More AC Outlets: We include one AC outlet. If you need more, you can add them to the same breaker or other breakers in the sub panel.
Different Breakers: The standard configuration includes three duplex breakers 30/15, 20/15 & 15/15. There are many options.
Simplify the Inverter: If you don’t need the full 2000VA or a charger, you may be interested in one of our smaller stand alone inverter kits like the 250VA, 500VA, 800VA, or 1200VA. With these kits you also have the option of adding a shore power charger like a Progressive Dynamics 45A or 60A model or a clip on 7A charger.
Upgrade the Inverter: There is only a marginal price difference between the 2000VA and the 3000VA inverter systems. The 3000VA has a different footprint that might be better suited to some installation.
Upgrade the Display: Add a wall mounted MPPT Control to monitor the charge controller or a Victron Color Control GX Monitor to show complete system status on a single animated display.
Plan your build with these components:
When the most experienced RV solar installer demands high performance, a narrow footprint, and accurate ratings, you end up with a 98W solar panel, custom engineered by Zamp, made in Bend Oregon, specifically for AM Solar customers.
Operating Voltage: 19.5V
Size: 42.7" x 19.8" x 1.38" 15.0lbs
Frame: Silver Anodized Aluminum
Connection Type: Zamp
This C-box is for efficiently combining solar panel output cables and sealing off a roof penetration. Its rugged and spacious design make installation and trouble shooting very easy.
Dimensions: H 1.9" x W 5.3" x D 7.4"
Because of Direct Current's tendency to arc when disconnected, special breakers are needed. These DC breakers are ideally used between charge controllers and battery banks and on alternator or small inverter lines.
Dimensions: H 1.8" x W 2.3" x D 3.5"
Battery monitor kit with programmable relay. Measures voltage, current, capacity, and temperature. Can work with any battery type. Built-in Bluetooth. Compatible with the Color Control Monitor.
Monitor Dimensions: H 1.3" x W 2.4" x D 2.4"
Shunt Dimensions: H 1.4" x W 4.8" x D 1.6"
The V4 Lithium Control Board regulates all charging and discharging sources of lithium batteries based on cell temperature and voltage to ensure optimum system performance.
Dimensions: H 0.9" x W 4.1" x D 2.1"
Manually disconnect high current lines. This switch is typically used between a combiner box and a charge controller, or between a battery bank and an inverter.
Dimensions: H 3.4" x W 2.9" x D 2.9"
Protect your batteries from accidental excessive discharge by installing a BP100 between your battery positive and DC distribution buss or fuse box. For loads under 100A.
Dimensions: H 2.5” x W 6.4” x D 1.7”
Includes integrated cell balancing and internal BMS. Batteries can be parallel connected to increase amp hour capacity.
Dimensions: H 11.7" x W 16.7" x D 10.4"
This panel is intended both for Multiplus and Quattro inverter'/chargers. It allows PowerControl and PowerAssist current limit setting for two AC sources: a generator and shore side current for example.
Dimensions: H 1.7" x W 4.7" x D 2.6"
The MultiPlus is a powerful true sine wave inverter, a sophisticated battery charger that features adaptive charge technology and a high-speed AC transfer switch in a single compact enclosure. Rated at 2000VA.
Dimensions: H 5.0" x W 9.9" x D 20.7"
