4/25/2017 – 2014 Airstream Flying Cloud, 30'

AM Solar installs a wide range of power equipment on RVs which gives us the flexibility to customize our systems to match a wide variety of customer preferences.  For example, this customer was familiar with the Bogart Engineering PWM charge controller interface and wanted it on his Airstream.  We were able to accommodate, and set him up with 400W of solar on an SC-2030 charge controller.

6/17/2016 - 1995 Airstream Classic, 30'

This rig came to us with two functioning 65W panels and a low-end charge controller.  They wanted more power.  We added two of our 100W solar panels and combined them all in a roof mount c-box.  Instead of penetrating the roof under the c-box, we routed the cables down the refrigerator vent.  Because of the two different panel types, with different voltages, we went with a PWM replacement charge controller and added a battery monitor.  (MPPT controllers don’t do well with mixed panels).  We also added a USB outlet for portable device charging.

Equipment Added: 2x   SF100 Panels  1x  Roof C-Box  1x  Bogart Solar Charger (SC2030)  1x  Tri-Metric 2030A and Harness Kit  1x  Mini On/Off Switch  1x 30A DC Circuit Breaker 1x 12V/USB Outlet
