These clients came to us wanting to have a small amount of solar power installed with the potential to install more at a later date. We installed one SF180 solar panel with a 50A charge controller and wired the rig with 4-gauge cable from the battery bank to the roof. The 50A charge controller is powerful enough for them to install three more SF180 panels. By installing the oversized charge controller now, we eliminated the need for them to install a new charge controller (saving them some money) when they expand in the future. The roof C-Box was also installed with expansion in mind.
This client just text messaged me and said he has been dry camping for the last 18 days without turning on his generator. We installed 640W of solar power along with a 600Ah AGM battery bank. We set up the system with future expansion in mind, which could include another 480W of solar panels on the existing charge controller. We also incorporated a portable solar panel, which uses a separate Bluetooth capable charge controller.
This client scheduled a troubleshoot because his old Heliotrope PV controller wasn't functioning very well. He had suspected it had gotten damaged by moisture. After an inspection, our techs determined it was time for an upgrade. He went with a Victron Blue Solar MPPT 100/30 charge controller and bluetooth monitoring. It was a pretty straightforward swap out.
This is one of our most powerful non-lithium systems. Features include: 1600W of solar charging, going through 100A MPPT charge controller, to a 900Ah AGM battery bank which feeds a 3000VA hybrid inverter. It’s another AM Solar mobile power plant.
This customer came to us wanting the best of the best and the most that could reasonably fit in their rig. They ended up with a 960W solar charging system and a 600Ah battery bank with a 3000VA inverter. With a system like this they can enjoy all the comforts of home, while on the road.
This 5th wheel got a 640W solar charging system with a 40A MPPT system core, a 2000W pure sine inverter and a 220Ah AGM Battery Bank. With a system like this they will be able run appliances like blenders and microwaves without a generator or shore power connection.
The AC Main and Sub panels took some clever wiring in order to run some loads through the inverter and other loads only on shore power. Other than that, there was ample space for a quick install. Thanks, Ron!
We installed 640W of solar using four 160W solar panels and a variety of “L” foot sizes to accommodate the curved roof. We also installed a 420Ah lithium battery system and a Magnum inverter.
We installed a 640W solar charging system and cleaned up the battery box on this fifth wheel.
