10/4/17 – 2016 Newmar Essex, 45’

This client’s rig came to us equipped with both a residential fridge, and an AC/DC freezer.  They also had a 3000W Xantrex inverter (previously installed), and a battery bank consisting of eight 6V Discover AGM batteries providing 414Ah of usable battery capacity.  We installed 1400W of solar power on their roof, mixing five SF180W solar power kits with 5 SP100W solar power kits.  On average, the solar power generated by this system will restore about 350Ah a day to their batteries.  We also installed a Victron 150/100 charge controller with built-in Bluetooth capability, a Victron BMV-702 battery monitor, and a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart Dongle so they can easily and accurately monitor their battery bank’s state of charge.
