6/6/2017 - 2017 Sprinter Sportsmobile, 19’

This client brought us an RV that was pre-wired for solar with 6-gauge cable, and a 2000W Magnum inverter.  They also provided a Yakama rack that they asked us to install the solar panels on.  We moved the batteries and inverter to a location better suited to maximize the efficiency of the system without compromising storage space.  We installed two SF100W solar panels onto their Yakama rack using AM Solar rocker mounts along with customer provided Yakama SnapAround Roof Rack Mounting Brackets.  The result is a one-of-a-kind solar installation job customized exactly how they requested, and designed to fit their specific needs.
