This customer came to us with some factory work that they wanted to have upgraded. They had a single panel and a Magnum MS2812 with an ME-MR. We upgraded them to an ME-RC50 remote meter and added another 640W solar charging system. Now they have much more control over their system and won’t have to worry about plugging into shore power as often.
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!
When air conditioning is important, you better go big with your battery capacity. This customer got an 800Ah Victron Signature lithium system will full cold weather charging disconnects. The Victron 3000VA inverter/charger can draw from shore power or a generator at the same time as it draws from the battery bank to power large loads like air conditioners.
This class A motorhome received a very powerful 1400W solar charging system with a Victron MPPT system core.
For the ambitious do-it-yourselfers out there who are overwhelmed by doing a full solar installation, consider having AM Solar do a partial install. In this case, we’ve secured the panels and routed the solar cables. The owner intends to tackle the remainder of the project, which will include a Victron charge controller and lithium battery system. This saves the customer time and money, while giving them a head start on their solar project and control over the installation process.
